Who is it for?

We give an online Piping Designer course aimed at everyone that wants to extend their knowledge in the piping sphere or who would like to make a start in the world of industrial piping. The course provides all the theoretical knowledge required to design complex systems.


200 hours distributed over 6 months (with the flexibility to adapt to each situation).

Moodle interactive platform


We use the popular teaching platform powered by the MOODLE engine that enables the student to learn in a convenient, interactive manner with numerous practical exercises and direct interaction with the tutor.

Sessions, personal tutorials, forums…

Your teachers will set up an open tutorial session schedule every week to resolve any doubts or confusion in conjunction with all the attendees in the room in sessions that encourage debates among the students and which can be continued in the forums.

Each subject studied during the course will have its own debate forum on which to raise a wide variety of questions and queries and the lessons learnt in order to broaden the knowledge transferred as much as possible.

In turn, students will be able to create topics to generate debate on real problems in which the entire class will be able to participate and transfer experiences.
