    I just finished my certification test and class from ICPI. Man that was a wonderful course. I took mine at the Hilton in Tarrytown, NY and I really enjoyed that course. I learned alot and recommend anyone who installs any type of pavers or hardscaping to take this class because you will learn a lot.

    It is a 18hour course and you take it a test at the end.

    How do you know you are certified if you just took the test?

    I would agree that if you have very little experience in paver it is a good course.

    If you have more than 2 years experience than I would say it is not at all worth the money....

    Good luck communicating with the company on any follow up question or problems you may have....

    I think that overall they are getting rich with that program..

    it is a privately owned company

    i just went through the course this last thurs and friday.

    i agree that the info is more geared to new installers, BUT the certification is still worth the money. the certification will help you out on municipal bids, and if there is ant future problems with your work.
    you will have a national certification.
