Developed by professional industry experts, the ACPA Operator Training Program is a 23-day program, which will guide you as you effectively train your new operators in the operation of concrete pumping. Your trainee will learn safe concrete pumping skills and practices whereupon after a successful completion of the program, your trainee will be designated a TRAINED PROFESSIONAL in the field of concrete pumping.
