McElroy, a leading manufacturer of thermoplastic pipe joining products, recently introduced online courses in its McElroy University training program. The training sessions are designed to give students the opportunity to become certified in fusion operations or more knowledgeable in the troubleshooting and repair of fusion machines.
McElroy University launched a new online home at www.mcelroy.com/university. The new site has a set of online instruction videos that are hosted by YouTube, making them accessible by most smartphones, tablets and computers. Also, a comprehensive course listing is available for hands-on training and certification, complete with online registration capabilities.
“We’re finding that digital tools are having a significant impact on jobsites,” said Chip McElroy, president of McElroy Manufacturing. “We feel that producing tools like McElroy University’s online videos is a key contribution to the industry. To have this library of videos as an easy-to-access source for pipeliners, for trainers in the field, and for other educational purposes will help everyone involved with their fusion operations.”
Initially, McElroy University has 12 videos on topics including Pit Bull 14 fusion operations, Pit Bull 26 fusion operations, Aquatherm polypropylene fusion operations, mid-range diameter fusion operations, heater troubleshooting, jobsite set-up, DataLogger operations, DataLogger analysis and MegaMc PolyHorse operations. Visitors to the website will be able to suggest videos they would like to see in the future as more are added.
