Piping Design Course Test Questions

Piping Design U is proud of the testing implemented for its courses.  For the current offering of 118 courses awarding certificates, PDU wrote 516 specialized questions for the course quizzes.  They align with the section objectives and badge definitions. They use new moodle question types in many cases.  They were written at the subtopic level, not at the main topic level likes other question banks.  They have been extensively proofread and checked.  Nothing like it exists anywhere.  Students trained on these questions are more than prepared for the SPED PPD exam questions.

The tabulation below shows the questions written for each category:
