Education Committee


Connecting piping system users with PPI technical content about plastic piping and conduit products by utilizing educational tools.


Through the work of PPI Divisions and its Technical Committee, PPI develops excellent technical content. Examples of content include Technical Reports, Technical Notes, Recommendations, Statements, Position Papers, Design Manuals, Installation Guides, Case Studies, Model Specifications, FAQs, software tools, etc.

But if a document, report or tool is not understood, its influence is diminished. Some of the documents are quite technical and require explanations about when and how to apply them, otherwise they don't get used or their full impact is not realized.

Therefore, the Education Committee's role is educating audiences about PPI documents and tools.
