Since 1977 Cured- in-Place Pipe (CIPP) liners have been installed for the successful rehabilitation of buried pipelines. This pipeline rehabilitation technique is now commonly used world wide to renew aging and deteriorating buried infrastructure in crowded urban environments.

NASTT has developed an industry peer reviewed one- to two-day course* on Cured-In-Place-Pipe Good Practices. These courses are geared to provide an in depth overview of waste water mainline and lateral pipe rehabilitation using CIPP from planning and design to job completion. The target audience is contractors, public works, consulting engineers, inspectors and industry practitioners.

The course is based on work conducted by the Centre for the Advancement of Trenchless Technology (CATT) and the University of Waterloo on behalf of NASTT. The course is taught by instructors who are experts on CIPP design, construction and testing. Participants earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Class participation is encouraged.

Course topics covered:
  • Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) rehabilitation description, history and methods.
  • CIPP design and construction that includes failure of pipe networks, CIPP applications and limitations, CIPP materials and liner with host pipe interaction, and job planning considerations.
  • CIPP testing that includes test procedures and definitions, standards; benchmark and construction QA/QC testing.
  • Liner design for non-pressure (gravity) applications: definition of partially or fully deteriorated, ovality etc; estimation of external liner loads, typical design properties; determination of circular and non-circular liner thickness using ASTM F-1216 and other design methodologies.
  • CIPP construction and installation considerations such as: host pipe preparation, flow bypass, resin selection, wet-out, liner dimensioning, curing, service connections and field samples;
  • CIPP contract specifications, tendering process and construction Quality Control and Quality Assurance.
