NASSCO continually works to improve the training experience of the Pipeline Assessment Certification Program and the Inspector Training Certification Program, including last year’s launch of online PACP recertification, which is designed to provide a more convenient process for maintaining certification status.

In addition to the ongoing updates to course content and improvements to format, over the past couple of years significant work has been done behind the scenes to manage the massive amounts of data involved in the retention of and updates to student records and certification dates, scheduling of classes, and provision of course materials.

Earlier this year, NASSCO launched a new website designed to simplify the process of finding, registering for, and managing PACP and ITCP classes. Bringing together huge amounts of data, the new website allows visitors on to take many actions:

  • Search for a PACP or ITCP class by proximity to your location as well as by type of training.
  • Search for a trainer by name, location, or class type.
  • Register for a class and download resources.
  • Purchase educational materials.

PACP and ITCP students can register for classes online and have the opportunity to receive class updates, request CEU credits, and download their ID cards and certificates.

In addition to finding, signing up for, and managing classes, visitors to can easily search and download educational information and resources including manufacturer specifications and publications, such as NASSCO Times, tech tips, white papers and more. Visitors can also search manufacturer guidelines by type of technology such as CIPP, pipe cleaning, pressure pipes, grouting, manhole rehabilitation and pipe bursting.

Another important resource on is the ability to search for certified individuals by name; location; distance from location; and any combination of PACP, MACP, LACP or ITCP certification. This resource is especially valuable for system owners who want to find or validate the status of individuals certified in PACP and/or ITCP.

All of this data — and more — is now managed and accessible via to better support NASSCO’s training and educational resources. Additionally, the new website allows NASSCO members to post job openings, which are available for review by public visitors to the site. This helps bring the right professionals together with the NASSCO member companies that have employment needs to fill. Visitors can apply for scholarships, read about recent NASSCO news and industry trends, and learn more about our influential NASSCO committees and divisions (the International Pipe Bursting Association and Infiltration Control Grouting Association).

Making training resources easier to find and use, connecting industry professionals, and making educational resources more readily available all work together to support NASSCO’s mission to set industry standards for the assessment and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure and to assure the continued acceptance and growth of trenchless technologies.
