ANNAPOLIS, Md.—NAHAD has converted its Hose Assembly Fabrication Guides into a series of interactive courses that are available on NAHAD Academy, its e-learning platform.
The Annapolis-based Association for Hose and Accessories Distribution said in a news release the updated courses are designed to "support employees' knowledge and use of proper methods and techniques for hose fabrication."
When employees complete the course material and learning assessment, they are certified for up to three years in best practices for hose fabrication.
"NAHAD members deserve not only the best industry training, but also state-of-the-art and conveniently accessible applications, handbooks and e-learning programs to further their education and (continuing education) requirements," Molly Alton Mullins, NAHAD executive vice president, said in a statement.
The Hose Assembly Fabrication Guides and courses cover industry regulations and requirements for the assembly and application of composite, hydraulic, corrugated, industrial and fluoropolymer hose types. Three of the five courses are available now, and the association said the industrial course will be ready by mid-October and the one for fluoropolymer hoses soon after.
There will be Spanish translations for the hydraulic and industrial fabrication courses in late October.
