Piper BootCamp

Instructor, Dr. William Beazley

Objective: Piper BootCamp covers equipment and fittings necessary for routing pipe from nozzle to rack to nozzle.  The topics covered are chosen to prepare for the SPED Professional Piping Designer Level I Certification test.  The SPED PPD Certification Test is given on the last day of the course.

The topics covered include:

  • Introduction to Process Plant Design
  • Design Phases & Information
  • Pipe Manufacturing  & Fabrication
  • Pipe Assembly
  • Typical Spool ISOs
  • Pipe and Weld Materials
  • Valve Types & Applications
  • Self-Actuated Valves
  • Valve Selection and Use
  • Pump Types
  • Pump Layout
  • Instrumentation
  • Pipe Routing
  • Pipe Racks
  • Pipe Layout Specification
  • Pipe Supports & Hangers
  • Pressure Vessels
  • Introduction to Pipe Stress and B31.3
  • CAD
  • PPD Review & Test

This is a very dense course and is packed with hard to find material covering a broad span of essential material.  It will move at a very fast pace.

This course is recommended for Piping Designers who are familiar with drafting principles and elementary design layout who desire a solid review of pipe design basics leading to an internationally recognized credential.  Piping drafters training in foreign countries desiring a refresher using English terminology and drafters from non-piping EPC disciplines are encouraged to attend. Successful students should be able to pass the SPED Professional Piping Designer Level I Exam.  Note: PPD Level I exam passage is NOT guaranteed and final certification subject to SPED application review.

William G. Beazley continues to offer piping design training to piping professionals.  Through video and classroom instruction, Dr. Beazley is able to prepare pipers for certification.  SPED certification is a well known respected certification in the piping design industry.
