Event Description: Attending seminar TU405 on Concrete Pump Safety fulfills the safety training requirement and is a comprehensive, in-depth course covering the basics included in the Certification Examination. ACPA Concrete Pump Operator Certification meets the safety training requirement included in the ASME B30.27 safety standard for material placement systems for concrete pumps and conveyors and is the only industry-recognized certification program which provides an independent written assessment of an operator’s knowledge regarding concrete pump safety.
