Iowa plumbers who wish to focus their elective credits on plumbing topics can take this two-part course to satisfy their 4 hours discipline requirement toward license renewal. Whether you have a single license or a combination of plumbing and mechanical licenses, this course will work for you.
We start Part 1 of our course with principles, design, and installation of graywater systems. Then we cover best practices and both 2015 IPC® and UPC® codes for graywater systems, before moving into the history, principles, design, and installation of private onsite wastewater treatment systems (or POWTS). In that section, the care, design, and corresponding regulations related to septic tanks is covered, along with soil absorption systems and other alternative POWTS.
Part 2 analyzes ten problem areas in the field of plumbing, including noise, sloping for drainage piping, floor drains, air gaps, leaks, and clearances. Next, we talk about traps and vents, cross-connection, corrosion, and how to resolve and/or prevent customer-created problems.
Videos and images are utilized throughout the course to enhance retention. After each lesson, students will be asked a single question about the material to test their comprehension.
