Fusion Training From The Industry Leader

For over 40 years, McElroy University has been the standard for instruction in the proper operation and maintenance of pipe fusion equipment.

Education Designed To Perform

McElroy University courses are built to ensure operators, technicians, inspectors, and engineers are prepared for the work ahead. Every class is designed to introduce concepts and simulate experiences that students will encounter on a pipe fusion jobsite.




Self-paced, online courses allow students to learn on their own time through interactive and engaging content covering a full range of topics. Whether it's a stand-alone online class or part of a hybrid training, the online courses provide a great training experience and serve as a resource that students can refer back to at a later time.


In-person training courses allow students to gain practical experience on McElroy fusion equipment. Whether it's operations training or maintenance training, the in-person training will help the student learn, understand, and develop the tactile skills necessary for success in the field.

Online + In-Person Training

Many courses offer online prerequisites that students complete prior to the in-person training and testing. This helps maximize in-person training effectiveness, allows students to begin their training right away, and can save students both time and money.

Interactive & Hands-On Instruction

To introduce concepts and help familiarize students with machine operations, McElroy University online courses feature easy-to-follow, experiential modules. In-person classes feature time dedicated to hands-on training using fusion equipment common to the field to ensure students are comfortable and competent.
