Contractors need to hire well-trained crews that can perform a variety of tasks on the job efficiently and safely. NUCA ’s Pipe Installation Training Series, now compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10, was developed in conjunction with VISTA Training. The three CDs make it easy to schedule training when and where it’s most convenient and are ideal for smaller companies that may only need to train a handful of new crew members per year.
The Pipe Layer Installation Training covers the fundamentals of water and sewer pipe installation using modern equipment and technologies. These programs can help your crews to work together safely and productively. Each CD, which takes about 90 minutes to complete, focuses on how to productively and safely perform common tasks related to installation of all different types of pipe. At the end of each program CD, an integrated test provides trainers with an accurate measure of how much knowledge trainees have retained as well as training documentation for employers. Trainees are also able to print a certificate of completion, customized with their name and test score, as well as a report showing any incorrectly answered test questions.
