CPD Review Classes

Classes will be held:  March 12, 14, 19, 21, 26, 28 - 5 - 7 pm CST, virtually

Are you considering taking the Certified in Plumbing Design (CPD) Exam in the future? Have you been unsuccessful in passing the exam in the past? Join ASPE for these virtual review classes where the instructors will cover topics such as:

  • A review of CPD Study Guide
  • Q&A about the exam
  • Key terms and definitions
  • Review of the five domains (Gathering Information, Administration, Design, Specifications, and Construction Services)

The workshop includes a CPD practice test (a $50 member value). This class is not a plumbing design 101 course, and it is not intended to teach students the material required for the exam. This class helps students learn HOW to study for the exam. Because there will be a high-level overview of the domains and content areas, this class will enable students to become aware of areas they need to focus their attention on leading up to the exam. In turn, this class will be helpful to students in their preparations for the exam. 

This event will be held over the course of six days for a period of 2 hours each day.  Students will take the CPD Practice Exam prior to the last day then discuss.  Partial registration is not available.

  • The calculator you intend to use during the CPD Exam (Candidates can bring in and use any non-programmable calculator into the exam.)
  • Any reference materials you intend to use during the exam (review the Open-Book FAQ page here)
