Plumbing courses are delivered in a Hybrid format with lecture and other didactic activities delivered online and labs delivered on-campus. Some courses within the program may be delivered fully online, while other courses combine on-campus labs with online lecture material. Some courses within the program may also include online lab simulations. Online, didactic instruction is primarily asynchronous, with assignments and homework accessible 24 hours a day/seven days per week through the Learning Management System (LMS). Students will need to reserve approximately 25-30 hours per week for online educational activities and study and on-campus labs. Once the COVID Pandemic ends, selected locations may resume fully on campus instruction.
