Quality School

Online Training at Your Pace

The Quality School of the American Concrete Pipe Association (ACPA) is an educational program offered to anyone interested in learning about production and quality practices of the concrete and precast industry. The school provides knowledge, training, and learning tools to students and the curriculum is focused on quality control and production practices typical for a concrete pipe and/or precast plant, and also satisfies your DOT and/or Q-CAST plant certification requirements.

As a student of the ACPA’s Online Quality School, you are able to complete the classes at your own pace, allowing you to review different components so you can develop a deeper understanding of the class material. Classes are taken in order and each one is separated into smaller sections with review questions. Once the questions are answered correctly, you will then be able to move to the next section. Each section can be taken as many times as necessary and if you have any questions, you can email the presenter directly for clarification.
