ANNAPOLIS, MD — The Association for Hose and Accessories Distribution, NAHAD, has announced its Hose Assembly Fabrication Guides have been converted to a series of interactive courses now available on their e-Learning platform, NAHAD Academy. Newly-updated and conveniently accessible via an online learning experience, these courses are designed to support employees’ knowledge and use of proper methods and techniques for hose fabrication. Upon successful completion of the course material and learning assessment, employees will be certified for up to three-years in hose fabrication best practices.
“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 CE requirements,” said Molly Alton Mullins, NAHAD Executive Vice President. “NAHAD offers its members many educational opportunities, including Regional Training. This, combined with the power of NAHAD Academy and the recently re-released Fabrication Guides and courses, affords members anytime, anywhere access to quality and relevant digital training.”
NAHAD’s 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 five courses are available today, with Industrial expected in early October and Fluoropolymer to follow soon. NAHAD will also provide Spanish translations for Hydraulic and Industrial Fabrication courses later in October.
“We are excited about the long-awaited update and release of the Fabrication Guides and courses on NAHAD Academy,” says Joanna Truitt, NAHAD Director of Training, and the Hose Safety Institute. “They truly are a great addition to our existing course material and professional development learning tracks.”
