2018 CCPPA Technical Seminars in Ontario

The Canadian Concrete Pipe and Precast Association is offering six technical seminars in Ontario for both government agencies and consulting engineering firms.

The seminar series is the largest training event that the CCPPA conducts across Canada each year. There is no cost to register, and breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Delegates will receive information that should help them to protect themselves, both legally and professionally. The topics covered in the seminars include:

  • Assessment of pipe systems
  • Rigid and flexible pipe design
  • Construction and inspection
  • Trenchless methods
  • Precast Concrete Boxes
  • Quality and inspection

The CCPPA Gravity Pipe Seminars have proven to be very useful for Design Engineers, Technologists, Project Managers, Contract Administrators, and Construction Inspectors.
