Two new courses have been added to the Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI) on-line instructional programs. PPI is the major North American trade association representing the plastic pipe industry. The PPI eLearn channel can be found at https://elearn.plasticpipe.org/
The two new courses include the following:
Plastic Pipe Design Calculator Course for using plastic pressure piping materials for plumbing and mechanical projects. Sections include Pressure/Head Loss, Hydraulic Shock, Pipe Weight/Volume, Thermal Expansion, and Expansion Arm/Loop Design.
Selecting & Specifying HDPE Conduit for Power & Communications Applications, a CEU style course covering the basics of HDPE Conduit materials, applications, standards and specifications.
These new courses, like the three others now available, are self-paced and built on a module platform that includes a certificate of completion at the end of the course. The other three programs are: Drainage Installation Training, Introduction to Polyethylene Piping for Oil and Gas and the PPI Mini-HDD Conduit Design Calculator tutorial.
