Last year, the National Association of Playground Contractors, Inc. (NPCAI) leadership dedicated time and resources to elevating the Recreation Installation Specialist Certification (RISC) program to make certain that participants are receiving the highest-quality program possible. 

“We are committed to ensuring that the RISC program follows best practices for certification programs,” explains NPCAI President Edward Miller, who also said that NPCAI hopes to eventually have its own ASTM standards for installation. 

NPCAI requires all RISC participants to successfully complete the following steps prior to participating in the certification course:

  • Complete Registration Form
  • Abide by NPCAI’s Code of Conduct
  • Adhere to NPCAI’s Rules and Regulations

NPCAI’s RISC course is a two-day course held multiple times per year in various locations across the United States. RISC consists of a comprehensive curriculum designed to focus on the necessary knowledge and skills one should possess to be an informed installation leader in the industry. To view a complete list of topics covered during the RISC course, please visit www.playground-contractors.org. 

For more information about the RISC program, please contact the NPCAI Certification Coordinator Kelly Clark at 717.724.0594 or [email protected]. The 2019 RISC course schedule is being set. Visit www.playground-contractors.org for dates and locations.
