P.I.P.E. Program

Pipe Installation Practices Education

Raising quality. Lowering costs. Ensuring proper installation. 

When installing concrete pipe as part of your drainage system solution, you have already chosen a product that is the most durable, long-lasting, and sustainable solution. In order to ensure the longevity of your system, it is imperative that it is installed correctly. The ACPA’s Pipe Installation Practices Education (PIPE) Program can provide the training to your personnel that will give you the peace of mind so you know that what you are putting in the ground will stay there for generations to come.


The ACPA's P.I.P.E Program was designed to teach pipe installation best practices and help contractors and field inspectors understand, implement, and inspect their concrete pipe installations. The program is an interactive day-long course, led by trained ACPA staff and members, that teaches participants the proper way to install concrete pipe.

Benefits of the PIPE Program

  • Credibility for installer with stakeholders

  • Confidence in a project's concrete pipe installation

  • Increased trust between owner and contractor

  • Lower project costs

  • Longer-lasting, more durable pipe

  • Lower maintenance costs of projects

  • More efficient and effective installations

Class Requirements

Participants who effectively complete all the course material will bring more value to future installations of concrete pipe. This value can be leveraged to provide distinction amongst other installers and inspectors in the field and uniquely positions the personnel to oversee concrete pipe installations and perform inspections.

Additionally, participants will receive access to materials that will help them market and distinguish themselves as recipients of this training. This includes entry into the ACPA's database, a personalized page on the ACPA site, access to logos, and other marketing collateral.
