The ACPA offers the only nationally recognized safety certification program for concrete pump operators. We've certified over 5,000 concrete pump operators nationwide, to help them achieve the highest degree of professionalism - and to maintain the strictest standards for safety.

More Information

Point-by-point exams ensure that operators are fully knowledgeable of safety in all aspects of their jobs.

Certification has been shown to improve safety, decrease accident rates in the workplace, and has become a critical standard for customers looking for reliable, high-quality pumping contractors.

Recertification keeps operators focused on correct practices and complete safety procedures.

Effective July 1, 2012, completing the ACPA Operator Safety Presentation 4.01 program or attending an ACPA Operator Safety Seminar are the only two methods in which to fulfill the mandatory continuing education requirement for all operators seeking ACPA certification or recertification.  The ACPA Certification Preparation Series will no longer be accepted.

Certification is available at a 60% discount for ACPA members.
