Seeking to facilitate home learning while traditional methods are unavailable, the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) has made its 2018 Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC) and Uniform Mechanical Code (UMC) Illustrated Training Manuals and Study Guides available to read for free online for a limited time.
An essential support and reference document for beginners and experts alike, the 2018 UPC and UMC Illustrated Training Manuals provide the entire code accompanied by hundreds of full-color photos and graphics and narrative discussion expanding on specific sections of each code. Using multiple choice questions chapter-by-chapter, the 2018 UPC and UMC Study Guides are developed as a tool for self-study or classroom training to assist the user in better understanding the requirements of each code.
These books may be accessed for free on www.iapmo.org:
“Understanding that so many of our members and associated organizations are instructors and/or students, who may require access to these documents while learning from home, we felt it was imperative to remove any roadblocks to their continued education by making them available in this manner on a temporary basis,” said Dan Cole, IAPMO senior director of technical services. “With many adult and vocational schools closed right now, we hope users will benefit from this limited opportunity and further their knowledge of the Uniform Codes during this unprecedented time.”
More information on IAPMO and its proactive initiatives in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic is available on the IAPMO website.
