Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) piping, also called Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) piping, is a cost-effective alternative to corrosion prone metallic piping and non-reinforced thermoplastics. However, the design of FRP systems requires specific knowledge as there are fundamental differences compared to the design of steel piping.

This course teaches you all the fundamentals required to design and work with FRP piping systems. After this course you have a solid understanding of the material properties and behavior for piping systems and you understand how this impacts designs. The engineering process is demonstrated, including pipe stress analysis. Also, a multitude of real-life field examples are discussed that illustrate critical aspects of FRP systems. In this course a great deal of attention is given to practical aspects of engineering FRP systems.

The course consists of 7 online, self-paced learning modules and 5 interactive, online live sessions with the instructor. Recordings of the live sessions and related training content are provided through our online portal.

Self-paced modules & live sessions
This course consists of 7 self-learning modules combined with 5 instructor-led group sessions (online) in which participants can ask questions to the instructor which are be discussed, as well as questions submitted in the self-learning modules. After each live session the recording of that session, used slides and exercise documents are made available to participants on the learning portal.

You receive 1-year unlimited access to the course. This allows you to watch content again if this is beneficial for your daily work activities.

The live sessions are scheduled together with the customer and are private for their team only. 

After the course participants receive 1-year unlimited access to all course content including recordings of the live sessions. This allows them to watch videos or recording live sessions again whenever required to refresh knowledge for daily work activities.

A personal digital certificate will be made available to each participant upon full attendance and completion of the self-learning modules.

Live sessions

Group live sessions are provided to your team by means of online calls with the instructor. Recordings of the live sessions and related training content are provided through our online portal. During each session, participants can ask questions to the instructor which are be discussed as well as questions submitted in the self-learning modules. The live sessions allow teams to discuss specific challenges with the instructor with respect to the training topics.

After each live session the recording of that session, used slides and exercise documents are made available to participants to view again.

Exercise files can be downloaded, these can include .pdf files with the exercise questions, software models or other file types. Videos will not be available for download, but can be accessed directly with your account on the portal. If slides are used in the videos or live sessions these can be viewed separately as well through the portal, but are not available for download. You receive 12-months unlimited access to the course. This allows you to watch content again if this is beneficial for your work projects.
