About the course
4 live sessions
~45 min /week
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.
During this introductory course you obtain an overview of the different aspects involved for realizing FRP piping systems. The aim of this course is to give all professionals involved with piping systems a better understanding of FRP systems.
The course consists of 4 interactive online live sessions provided by the instructor. Recordings and related training content are provided through our online portal and will be available or 6 months.
