The International Playground Contractors Association (formerly the National Playground Contractors Association) will premiere its Playground Construction School February 10-12, 2005 in Orlando, Florida. The organization asserts this is the first time an industry-wide national school has been held.

  • site analysis
  • job site safety
  • reading blueprints
  • working with common materials and hardware
  • working with general contractors, manufacturers and their reps
  • guidelines and standards
  • installation techniques
  • tools of the trade
  • surfacing installation and requirements
  • finishing the job
  • playground construction as a business
  • state requirements

The school will conclude with an installation of a playground structure.

The association plans to offer certification testing.
