This individualized, self-paced course for independent study in plumbing was adapted from military curriculum materials for use in vocational education. The course provides the theory to accompany on-the-job training in the plumbing trade. It provides basic information on job safety and tools, waste systems, and water supply systems and fixtures. The course is organized in three volumes. Volume 1, Career Orientation, Supervision, and Resource Management, contains chapters on job safety and job tools and equipment. Volume 2, Waste Systems, contains chapters on sewage systems and waste disposal; structural openings, building drains, stacks, and vents; roughing-in vents and waste lines; measuring, cutting, threading, and assembling pipe; and inspecting and maintaining waste systems. The final volume, Water Supply Systems and Fixtures, contains seven chapters covering water supply systems and pipe assembling; roughing-in water supplies and installing fixtures; copper tubing and brass pipe; insulation and winterization of plumbing; water heaters, dishwashers, steam kettles, sinks, and auxiliary plumbing equipment; preventive maintenance and corrosion control; and fire protection and lawn sprinkler systems. Each chapter is organized around criterion learning objectives. A numbered objective is followed by text and an exercise with answers provided. Each volume is accompanied by a volume review exercise containing from 107 to 114 multiple choice questions coded to the learning objectives, without answers. (KC)
