Segmental Retaining Wall industry is now requesting certified installers to be specified and used on all wall installations

Did you know the segmental retaining wall industry is now requesting certified installers to be specified and used on all wall installations?  NCMA and Allan Block have both published industry recognized Best Practice for Segmental Retaining Wall Design documents outlining the request for qualified and certified installers (AB & NCMA).  As outlined in Best Practices, the installer should be certified by an industry recognized program like the Allan Block Certification Program.  

We run certification classes all over North America and have trained and certified thousands of contractors since the inception of our training program nearly 20 years ago.  Winter is the most popular time of the year for training classes as contractors hire new staff and/or prepare for the next season and want to keep their crew up-to-date on correct installation procedures within the industry.  Many classes are already scheduled – check out our site to find a class near you or to request a class in your area. 

Whether you have a small project built at your home or you are developing a large commercial site, use an Allan Block certified installer on your next project and share pictures with us after it is built at info@allanblock.com.  If you are a contractor and would like to become certified to avoid missing wall opportunities in the future, please join us at a class near you.
