Growing demand for more versatile training options due to the COVID-19 pandemic presented an opportune time for Victaulic to make its catalog of courses, many of which offer International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) Continuing Education Units (CEUs), available to engineers, contractors, architects and designers online.
"The launch of Victaulic University’s virtual platform is another successful result of collaborating with customers to help solve their challenges," said Eric Luftig, vice president. "We are pleased to introduce an innovative and convenient way to support the industry’s need for high-quality education."
The company has instructed 175 live sessions since March, attracting approximately 7,200 virtual learners from 99 countries.
"The Victaulic education program presents valuable information in a well-organized and easily understood fashion,” said Mike Stossel, senior design manager at KNS Sprinkler Design and a recent Victaulic University participant. "The content is extremely insightful, and we look forward to participating in more courses in the future."
Victaulic's 45+ piping technology courses are available at no cost in two virtual formats: live, instructor-led webinars and self-paced courses, which are available on-demand at any time. Courses are taught in English, Spanish, and German, with new languages being added regularly, and cover several industries, including:
- General Engineering/Construction
- Plumbing, Heating and Air
- Data Centers
- Fire Protection
- Virtual Design and Construction
CEUs or Professional Development Hours (PDHs) are available upon completion of applicable courses.
