Better than a classroom course...
Students who use my course have a higher passing rate than students who attend a classroom.
Because, people who READ the material retain much more than people whom are TOLD the material, and the Guide is always next to them for reference or as a last minute refresher. In classroom courses, one of the most common statements made during breaks is “I think I’ll understand this stuff better once I get home and look over my notes” (Translated; “ I don’t have any idea what he’s talking about, and I’ve only got 1/2 page of notes.”).
If your looking for a source to help you understand the provisions of the International Plumbing and Gas codes, look no further. This Guide takes you through each chapter, step-by-step. It leaves no stone unturned. It explains water, drain and vent pipe sizing, how to calculate fixture requirements, occupancy loads, male/female ratios, gas pipe and vent sizing, and combustion air requirements.
“If you don’t do it now, What will you be doing five years from now?”
