CPI’s Professional Development Program (PDP), which has been going strong for more than a decade, consists of educational and training courses that provide unmatched opportunities for participants to increase their knowledge of the polyurethane industry. The PDP provides unparalleled learning opportunities for both industry newcomers and veterans. CPI strives to provide opportunities that keep industry professionals on top of the latest standards, trends and developments.
CPI’s PDP attendees include the nation’s leading suppliers, producers and distributors of chemicals and equipment used to make polyurethane and manufacturers of polyurethane products. Our PDP program is the building block for members and non-members of CPI to understand developments in polyurethane products from new science-based research, new innovative technology, polyurethane elastomers, coatings, sealants and much more.

Expand your knowledge of polyurethane with the help of top experts during this year’s PDP. The PDP’s courses run concurrently with the CPI Technical Conference. CPI’s Professional Development Program has been updated with new course content. The education and training courses provide opportunities for participants to increase their industry knowledge and range from broad introductory subjects such as “PU 100: Introduction to Polyurethane Industry” to advanced, specialized topics such as “PU 204: Physical Testing of Polyurethane Foams.”
This extensive variety of courses provides topics of interest to non-technical and technical professionals alike. PU 100 and PU 102 may interest an industry newcomer who desires a comprehensive overview of polyurethane chemistry, chemical ingredients, machinery, end-products, and markets.
All courses are taught by subject-matter experts. A complete list of PDP courses can be found below.
