Are you considering taking the Certified in Plumbing Design (CPD) Exam in the future? ASPE is offering two virtual review classes in 2021 on February 13, 14, and 20 and February 27, 28, and March 6. During these classes, the instructors will cover topics such as:
- A review of the new CPD Study Guide
- Q&A about the exam
- Key terms and definitions
- Review of the five domains (Gathering Information, Administration, Design, Specifications, and Construction Services)
This class will help you learn how to study for the exam. Due to the high-level overview of the exam’s domains and content areas, the CPD Review Class will make you aware of areas to focus on in your preparation for the exam. This class is not a plumbing design 101 course, and it is not intended to teach you the material required for the exam.
Each class will be held for three days. The instruction time is roughly four hours per day, plus breaks, for a total of five hours. Partial registration is not available. You can register for one or both classes.
The classes are $300 for ASPE Members and $500 for nonmembers. Registration includes a CPD practice test (a $50 member value).
