The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) has made its 2018 Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC) and Uniform Mechanical Code (UMC) training manuals and study guides available to read for free online for a limited time.
The 2018 UPC and UMC manuals provide the entire code, accompanied by hundreds of full-colour photos and graphics and narrative discussion expanding on specific sections of each code.
Multiple-choice questions are available in the study guide for each chapter as a tool for self-study or classroom training.

“Understanding that so many of our members and associated organizations are instructors and/or students, who may require access to these documents while learning from home, we felt it was imperative to remove any roadblocks to their continued education by making them available in this manner on a temporary basis,” said Dan Cole, IAPMO senior director of technical services. “With many adult and vocational schools closed right now, we hope users will benefit from this limited opportunity and further their knowledge of the Uniform Codes during this unprecedented time.”
