Two new classroom-based certificate programs will be offered this year by Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute-trained instructors. Addressing increased concrete paver use in construction projects, the Level II Concrete Paver Installer Certificate Course targets installers who have completed ICPI's Level I paver installation program. It is tailored to contractors experienced in residential paver projects who are looking to expand into municipal and commercial work.
The second class Û the Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavement (PICP) Installer Technician Certificate Course Û is designed for contractors expanding into the permeable pavement market. The two-day program helps potential and existing PICP contractors learn industry-established guidelines for residential and commercial applications.
The permeable class will be offered for the first time during World of Concrete, Feb. 4-5, in Las Vegas, while the Level II installer course debuts at Icon Expo, March 19-20 in San Antonio, Texas. Subsequent offerings are listed on ICPI's Calendar of Events at http://www.icpi.org/industry/calendar.cfm.
