ACPA Workshops


Live sessions. Independent work. Deeper comprehension.

ACPA Workshops are in-depth and interactive virtual trainings led by ACPA Regional Engineers and members.  They are scheduled from 2-4 hours and hit upon a wide variety of topics that range from installation, inspection, manufacturing, safety, and other topics relevant to drainage products.  Workshops are more intensive and interactive than webinars and often involve a combination of instruction, discussion, and assessment.

The ACPA provides Workshops on a national level and works with our members to help provide them on a local level.  All Workshop materials have been first reviewed by the ACPA engineering staff.


Workshops are typically $25 per event but prices can vary depending on the topic, speaker, and number of workshops being offered.


Earning PDHs The ACPA proudly offers professional development hours (PDHs) for the workshops we provide. To receive a PDH, participants must individually register, participate, and attend at least 50 minutes of each hour of the Workshop.  We use a mixed platform for Workshops including Zoom and an LMS software.  To allow us to accurately monitor the participation and length of time a participant has been in the Workshop, we require all participants to log into the LMS and Zoom.  PDHs are issued within two weeks after the Workshop has concluded.
PDH Acceptance The ACPA only provides Workshops we believe meet the requirements worthy of issuing PDHs, but it is up to each participant to ensure the individual Workshop meets the requirements as put forth by the licensing board in his/her state.

January 12th, 2023


11am - 1pm CT


Pre & Post Installation Inspection

This workshop will introduce attendees to the inspection milestones throughout a storm drainage pipe’s life cycle, with an in-depth focus on the pre- and post-installation timeframes. This class will give students a review of AASHTO R73, which provides excellent guidance on the evaluation of pre-installed reinforced concrete pipe and other precast drainage products. Attendees will also learn about Post Installation Inspections (PII) that provide the owner with the information necessary to determine if proper installation occurred prior to project close-out or final acceptance.

November 28th, 2022


11am - 1pm CT


Pre & Post Installation Inspection

A properly installed pipe should remain in service for 50 to 100 years with little or no maintenance. The ACPA has documented installation practices for both flexible and rigid pipe at the local and state level. This class will focus on promoting a solid understanding of installation, specifications, design requirements, and material differences for pipe systems. Empower your staff with the ability to properly inspect, design, install and accept both flexible and rigid pipe systems.
