I received my diploma and pen 5 days after completing the course. This probably has something to do with the fact that both I and Ipex are located in Canada.

You have to have popup blocker turned off. The course and test are in a popup window. I took that thing 3 times just to make sure they know i did it, and still to this date no nothing from them, i'm pissed off about now!

Well I guess if i ever begin to doubt my ability to solvent weld then I will go and take the course, but for now I think I'm ok.

I did it and got my certificate sent a few weeks back.

Didn't think they'd send it to me in the UK.......

The test was rediculessly easy as mentioned before, i think it is acctually a BAD thing to let people with so little knolage of solvent welding call them selves "solvent welding pros", maybe some one here should make another test that is acctually suitable for spudgunning specifically

Solvent welding is pretty simple. There's not much more to cover and there's no difference between solvent welding for plumbing or spudding applications.

This test is fine, just beacuse it is easy if you know what you are doing doesn't mean it's not good enough. Solvent welding can be learned pretty quick.

I think it is irresponsible to say such a thing at a so ridiculessly easy test... What is if i dont use pvc? Will you still not take me seriously?
In fact, I wont even take you seriously on here until you can prove to me that you passed this thing.
