AIChE relaunches public courses and in-house training, while expancing eLearning

The leadership of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers has decided to begin administering live, face-to-face learning again to assure top-quality and consistent chemical engineering content across all delivery channels and platforms.


AIChE, Source: American Institute of Chemical EngineersThe American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), which last year launched a new series of online learning courses, will, beginning this July, again offer instructor-led public courses at sites around the county. These courses, and other content, will also be available for customized, in-company presentation.

While some of these courses have been offered through the American Society of Mechanical Engineers for the last few years, AIChE’s leadership decided to begin administering live, face-to-face learning again to assure top-quality and consistent chemical engineering content across all delivery channels and platforms. Bette Lawler, AIChE’s director of operations, said that the decision was another demonstration of “AIChE’s ongoing commitment to building value for members through more and better content.”

The initial roster of 12 public, instructor-led courses will run from September through December 2012. Those courses will be held in Houston, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Orlando and San Francisco. Additional courses and cities will be added in 2013.

To oversee this effort, AIChE has named Anne Schaeffer its new director of education. Schaeffer, who built a successful education program for the Direct Marketing Association, said: “With all the offerings under one ‘roof,’ we’re able to provide technically expert, quality education and let members decide what method of training works best for them.” She added that some courses, like the popular Essentials of Chemical Engineering for Non-Engineers, are designed for nonmembers, as well.
