    Grassyfras - what was your knowledge of pavers prior to taking this class? I see the prerequisites on the ICPI site, but I'm wondering how much existing knowledge you actually need for the course. I currently have none.

    I have very little I would say but it is an interst of mine. I do read alot on lawnsite and in books about pavers/retaining walls and I've built a few gardenn walls around town and one patio at my own house for shits and grins. I'm also taking a soils class at school and that took about about a quarter of the day talking about almost the same concepts as in my college class. I would do it if I were you.

    You don't need prior knowledge to take the class, but I wouldn't pay for it. Take a free class that the manufacturer sets up they're pretty informative and free!

    I think I passed. It wasnt to hard and I dont think they wanted you to fail. Wish I knew you were a member of lawnsite.

    Ya its basically class and a test for two days. They have it set up so that theirs a civil engineer and a business owner who has alot of experience in paver's. It gives you the "why you do it like this" and then it gives you the experienced guys tips, tricks, and how to price,basically

    Ya, I'm pretty sure I passed. They did a very nice job during the 'review' of hitting on the important stuff. I thought about asking if there were any LS members there.
