FIP pays particular attention to training welders to a high professional level. A direct result of this commitment is the Welding Workout Academy, the national training centre for welding plastic materials approved by RINA (the Italian Ship Register).

The academy organises training courses and issues welder and operator qualification certificates for welding pipes and fittings in polyethylene for conveying fuel gases, water and other fluids under pressure according to standard UNI 9737. The centre also organises courses for welding pipes and fittings in ABS, PVC-U, PVC-C, PP and PVDF in line with standards UNI 11242, UNI 11318, UNI 11397 and EN 13067.
