Did anyone tell you that all of the education you acquired by the time you finished college would seem small in comparison to all of the professional development, seminars, and workshops you would experience in your career?
When you look back or see your children going through school, how do those 17 years that covered every course since kindergarten through the senior year in college stack up to the 40 years of rapid learning you do every day on the job? That’s why the PEC Web Seminar Series was created—just for you.
Have you registered for one or more of the courses yet? Many have and we hope you are one of them. Surprisingly, we get e-mails from PEC members who say they have no experience with Web seminars and want to know what it’s all about.
The best thing is you never have to raise your hand in class. If you have a comment or question, you can type it to the instructor at any time.
The two other great things about Web seminars from PEC is the quality and convenience. Are you are looking for a little professional development and some course credits to keep your PE status current, but you don’t have the time or budget to travel to one of those multi-day shindigs?
Kim Granados, director of Professional Practice at NSPE, along with the leaders of PEC, selects the best presenters from those more-distant meetings and brings them right to your desk. And—this is key, folks—you pay per site so that means that more than one PE can come to your office and share the whole learning experience with you, for one price.
Each 90-minute seminar is $149 (NSPE member price) for the live broadcast with downloadable handouts and CEUs you can apply toward maintaining your PE license. What if you want to invite someone who is not a member of NSPE? We welcome you and encourage you to register at the nonmember price of $189 or become an NSPE member and qualify for the member rate.

This is professional education for engineers who have no time. How do you get professional engineering courses and lessons under your belt when there’s absolutely no time in your schedule? Have you had intentions to get fresh information and new connections to advance your business, but it never gets much further than a note to yourself?
The PEC Web Seminar Series will help you get past your mental barriers of not making the time for the most important asset in your business—you and your people.
"Most of all, we need affordable, convenient education and training," said Charles McDuff, P.E., when the PEC leaders and staff met for the first time to define the current Knowledge Initiative. That’s exactly what our Web seminars bring to you. We need you to do three things for yourself and PEC:
- Register for one or more of the courses.
- Refer this to a colleague in construction and, if in the same town, invite them to your office so everyone can see and hear the lessons. One of you will be typing as the teacher talks. If there are several of you, take turns. Everyone needs to jump into the conversations and questions.
- Send an e-mail and tell us what you think of the course. At the same time, tell us your challenges at work and the kind of information or training you would like PEC to deliver, right to you, wherever you and your computer, plus Internet connection go.
Our objective is to help you make 2006 the best year you’ve ever had. You’ll need the information and competitive edge found in every Web seminar to help you achieve record-setting success.
