KYPipe & Surge Self Paced Training Course

KYPipe offers self-paced training courses for Pipe2016:KYPipe and Pipe2016:Surge Modeling.  The training materials and format are very similar to that used in the KYPipe and Surge Pipe2016 training seminars.  The courses are narrated by Dr. Don Wood, Professor Emeritus of Civil Engineering at the University of Kentucky and founder of KYPipe.  These courses are designed to provide a deeper understanding of hydraulic modeling.  You will learn how to utilize advanced tools and apply best practices, analyze flows and pressures when building hydraulic distribution systems with the KYPipe and Surge software. This self-paced dual training course can be taken independently and without time limitations. You may complete the courses anywhere, at any time and at your own pace.

Pipe2016:KYPipe course materials include a 50-pipe evaluation version of the KYPipe software.  Pipe2016:Surge course materials include a 50-pipe evaluation version of the Surge software. Materials for both courses include numerous examples within a comprehensive Examples Manual that includes detailed notes. Users can contact Technical Support for assistance with course lessons.  The courses may be viewed for free, but with purchase, each course offers 1 CEU or 8 PDHs.  Certification will be awarded upon successful completion of the final exam.
