What is NASSCO?
The National Association of Sewer Service Companies (NASSCO) is an organization of infrastructure professionals that are interested in and dedicated to improving the performance and standardization of procedures in pipeline cleaning, repair, and inspections. NASSCO has developed a standardized rating, identification, and classification system for faults, problems, and defects found in sewer pipes. NASSCO has developed a training class that will ensure that all operators/inspectors will classify defects the same way. This training standard is known as the Pipe Assessment Certification Program (PACP). We are pleased to offer NASSCO Certification training for the PACP/LACP/MACP including re-certifications. Your certification is good for (3) years.
By adopting and utilizing standard codes, you can not only benchmark sewer pipe conditions within a utility, but also compare sewer pipe conditions from one time frame to another and from one utility to another. The comprehensive PACP database also proves useful during implementation of new initiatives for asset management. Standardization improves your productivity, allow the integration of inspection data from many sources, and reduce the subjective nature of describing features and defects that often exists today.
For more information go to the following link to the NASSCO website: www.nassco.org
Each student will be required to pass a multiple choice exam for the PACP, MACP and LACP modules.
Training and Certification of Users — Program graduates are assigned a certification number for quality assurance on their assessment videos to ensure continuity of data use as well as compliance for many Municipal Specifications. All certification information and credentials are posted at www.nassco.org for verification. This class also qualifies for CEU credits.
