Distant Learning

Bringing ACPA Education into the 21st Century 

As our industry becomes even busier in this economy, ACPA seeks ways to make education more efficient. Distant learning is utilized by most universities, and ACPA wants to incorporate these techniques to train marketing and sales professionals to help agencies with effective specifications. 

ACPA will also work towards the development of distant learning for its Quality School which accredits the industry’s quality professionals for the QCast program. 

These programs will allow you to train your professionals at a fraction of the time away from their main focus and without travel costs.


DOTS and Municipalities at Pipe School

The Pipe School provides an invaluable relationship building opportunity for Public agencies such as DOTs and Municipalities. ACPA engineers work diligently to invite and confirm as many of your DOT and Municipal guests as possible to the school, and we need your financial support to cover the cost of their attendance. 

The ACPA Foundation seeks to provide scholarships that further the advancement of the concrete pipe and box culvert industry. With your support, you can take this opportunity to establish a scholarship for public agencies, university students, and/or industry personnel. 

Pipe School DOT/Producer Dinner
