    Just finished up with an ICPI Paver Certification course/test. It was awesome! Can't wait to get first job.

    Question, anybody know of any similar courses for Retaining Walls? I know the NCMA holds a Retaining Wall Installer course, but it runs pricey at $350.
    Looking for any less expensive options IF there are any...

    $350 is nothing compared to the liablity of improperly installing a SRW.

    Unilock offers FREE classes in the spring.

    Thanks. Checked their website, are they only in the North? I didn't see any locations here in the South?

    Check with your suppliers since they should have better contact with the manufacturers. Most companies put the seminars and building classes on in the winter and spring. Some will be free and some will charge at least around here.
