PPD 100% Club

The SPED Professional Piping Designer (PPD) 100% Club is a program where members pledge to maintain 100% certification among their Piping Designer Staff.  In support of this pledge, SPED makes PPD online review resources available to the member at no cost and supports their efforts to plan training and gain public funding for staff training and testing.  PPD 100% Club members receive a certificate of compliance for each office adhering to program requirements.  A Club member with all offices within a corporate entity in compliance can display the PPD 100% Club logo on their website and proposals within that entity.  Membership in the program is free to SPED Corporate Members. There is no contract or other legal obligation associated with this program.  A signed letter of intent to certify pipers is all that is required.   This is part of SPED's committment to promote excellence and quality in piping design.  We hope you will join us in our effort to continually improve the skills of piping designers,


The technical success of the SPED Professional Piping Designer (PPD) Certification Program and the availability of Video, Classroom and Online training to prepare for PPD Certification has enabled this program.  SPED has tested and certified pipers worldwide.  In addition, SPED has successfully taught PPD Level I and Level III knowledge in the classroom, through videos and online courses. Other college and company training programs have taught PPD Piper BootCamp and Process Plant Layout.
