Two new courses have been added to the Plastics Pipe Institute, Inc. (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

The two new courses are:

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.
