P3 Training

Online P3 Training

A learning opportunity for ACPA Members.

P3 is an ACPA training resource for beginners to veterans. P3 teaches students the fundamentals of concrete pipe while gaining a better understanding of the manufacturing, installation, inspection process and an introduction to design. It is led by the ACPA's Region Engineer Team, who are experts in both industry and technical knowledge. 

P3 is a hybrid learning experience that incorporates live discussion, recorded instruction, assignments, and quizzes.  It is four full days of learning that empowers students with the knowledge and ability to raise awareness about concrete pipe and precast.

Student Experience

Online Classes
Leveraging a professional online learning platform to help host and facilitate the class, students will have a first-class distance learning experience equivalent to an in-person classroom.

Class Experience
The P3 classes combine both live sessions and independent online work that the student completes during the training time. Independent work includes short assignments, which incorporates videos, quizzes, and/or readings. The live session allows students to apply newly learned knowledge during the independent online work time.

All students must have access to a computer with a webcam and a reliable computer connection in order to participate. Students need to come prepared learn, be set up in a distraction free environment, and plan on being an active participant.
