This 16-hour course will cover a number of important topics for you to review as you complete your CE requirements!

The beginning of the course will introduce some electrical concepts for plumbers, including appropriate procedures for wet and damp locations.

The second part of our course will focus on rainwater harvesting systems. Here, we will focus on the components of a rainwater harvesting system, and how one operates. We’ll also discuss the six major components of a rainwater harvesting system, and suitable locations for a rainwater catchment area. Additionally, we’ll talk about the processes of filtration, screening and diversion, all of which are essential to an effective and useful rainwater harvesting system.

Next, we’ll review OSHA regulations which are in place to help ensure the safety of everyone on a jobsite. We’ll talk about some dangers you may encounter, and some basic safety measures to protect yourself and others.

In the UPC review section of the course, we will cover the general scope of the UPC, along with organization and enforcement, and how violations and penalties are handled. We’ll also talk about inspections, maintenance, repairs and alterations, and how to handle it when two relevant codes conflict. Minimum standards for the materials used in plumbing construction and repair will be addressed, and we’ll cover some alternate materials and methods that may be used.

Our review of Chapter 5 will address working with water heaters. This includes inspection requirements, safety devices, and various types of water heaters, as well as instruction for installing water heaters in special locations. Water Supply and Distribution will be addressed in Chapter 6, including temperature and backflow requirements, acceptable materials to use, and the appropriate size of pipe for various situations.

These are just some of the topics we’ll cover in this extensive course!

electrical section had entirely too much information and was too intensive

June 19th, 2019
Wow! the most complete course I've even taken! Great Job!

January 8th, 2019
excellent content at a great price!

October 1st, 2018
just happy to get through it.

August 21st, 2019
This was pretty good. There were a few questions here and there that had errors or no answers so I was hoping to get them right.

July 4th, 2019
way to much electrical for a plumber.

March 22nd, 2019
The course is very informative. Everything pertaining to UPC code was fantastic. The electrical portion was informative but useless. Through out the course ( electrical ) it says, " electrical professional ", which i am not nor do I have the desire sparkify my life. As we all know in the building trades, one must be certified and licensed to work in a specific trade and there are years of schooling to achieve such a certificate and license. To a plumber the verbiage was almost a foreign language. It just seems like electrical for water heaters would be more pertinent to plumbers, but what do I know I'm just a dumb plumber. :)

Needs to be able to review materials while testing.

May 25th, 2018
Too many questions on exams (over 525). Great customer service, though. Thanks

February 14th, 2018
This was not a 16 hour course. it actually took me 4 days to complete this. The tests were to long and alot of information on the test was not in the material covered for study. Had a Plumbing code question about how many toilets for females in a restaurant if occupancy is 100. I answered 3, but got it wrong. Still do not understand why. I did like all of the new information i learned about Plumbing code and having to read 2015 UPC code book. Thank you for your courses.

January 26th, 2018
The electrical section was absolutely absurd for a plumber. You should focus ce electrical section for plumbers. I have no need to know about pendant lighting and 10,000 volts systems

August 3rd, 2019
Courses seem much longer then required with quizzes

July 4th, 2019
These lessons and especially the exams are way way too long. It took my about 40 hours to do this 16 hour course

May 19th, 2019
It would be helpful if the referenced course material was accessible for the testing. By the time you read everything, then take an obscenely long test you have no idea what random article is being referenced.

April 18th, 2019
Most difficult continuing ed I have ever experienced,

November 7th, 2018
Answer were changed after submittal; questions answer key didn't show a complete answer

March 19th, 2018
The tests were way too long

March 15th, 2019
There were a lot of errors in you course, spelling and otherwise. You left out words, it made it a little hard to follow.

September 18th, 2018
Shorter Sections and tests

September 6th, 2018
It was hard to get the correct answers. It was a lot of information and then a lot of questions

April 9th, 2019
The worst CE course I have ever taken. I will never use again or refer my employees and friends.

March 23rd, 2019
Your course was the most burdensome and non relevant I have ever taken in 30 plus years!!

March 5th, 2019
The electrical section was above and beyond the level and needed capacity of a licensed plumber. Stick to the basics, I had to buy the NEC to finish the test and pass. Licensed Plumbers aren't doing that level of electrical under those conditions an electrician would be doing the electrical.

February 21st, 2019
As a plumber I think that there could have been a better application in the electrical section other than pools, fire and irrigation which tend to be specialized areas. Wiring for radiant systems boilers, tank and tankless water heating systems 3 phase and pump systems would have been more applicable for the area in plumbing that myself and others I know work in. I have to say though, that I know a lot more about pools and irrigation now!

September 6th, 2018
I will never use this company EVER again. I would love to have you show me how to do this in 16 hours. I took about 67

May 18th, 2018
This course covered so much on areas I will never work under and little in areas I work in constently and took way to long which consumed time that was meant for me to be elsewhere.

May 11th, 2018
Far too technical and similar answers that could be correct. electrical not even close to being general for plumbers.
