Aquatherm Academy offers free training on a wide range of fusion techniques, and the company has expanded its offerings to include more jobsite-oriented training.

Aquatherm Expands, Updates Training Programs

Aug. 2, 2018
The manufacturer's new training program, Aquatherm Academy, will consist of three programs.

Polypropylene piping system manufacturer Aquatherm introduces its new training program: Aquatherm Academy. It will consist of three programs: Aquatherm Training Professional, a Trainer Refresh course, and sales training for Aquatherm reps and distributors.

The Aquatherm Master Training (trainer training) program ended, effective June 1, and is replaced by the ATP program. The ATP program expands upon the Master Training program to cover a wider range of installation techniques and jobsite troubleshooting. The three-and-a-half-day ATP course will be offered only at Aquatherm’s North American headquarters in Lindon, Utah. The one-day Trainer Refresh and one-day sales training will be conducted locally/in the field.

Course materials for the socket and outlet, butt fusion and electrofusion courses have been updated to reflect the changes made in the ATP course.

Polypropylene pipe is joined via heat fusion, which eliminates open flame and VOCs from the metal-welding equation and creates virtually leak-free connections. Designing and installing with PP-R requires a bit of a different mindset than traditional piping materials, but most designers, pipefitters and plumbers adapt quickly with proper training.

For the last decade Aquatherm helped educate North American engineers, installers and facility managers on heat fusion techniques, and the company continues to offer extensive heat fusion courses (including socket fusion, butt fusion, electrofusion and others) to customers free of charge. These courses help ensure safe, consistent and profitable installations.
