Engineering education in Webcasts

Think again about back to school: Getting continuing education credits to maintain an engineering license (or as required by certain employers) can represent a time-management challenge, on top of everything else an engineer reads to keep up on technologies and trends. Here’s help with that, in 10 one-hour bites.

Stay on top of emerging technology and trends to prevent your skills from becoming obsolete. That was among the advice offered by a respondent to the May issue salary and career survey. Help is available in 10 one-hour bites: Control Engineering offers continuing education credits for Webcasts covering topics and trends in automation, controls, and instrumentation, along with related devices, systems, networks, and software. Webcast credit opportunities expire after a year according to the standards and requirements of the Registered Continuing Education Program (RCEP). Stay in the know at www.controleng.com/webcasts.

IIoT, robotics, HMIs

Topics for credit include the following (with expiration dates in parentheses):

  • Cybersecurity Technologies and Strategies, Tips for Industrial Control Systems (Sept. 3)
  • Tips for Automation System Integration Project Management (Sept. 10)
  • IIoT Webcast two: Operations (Sept. 17)
  • IIoT Webcast three: Integration considerations (Nov. 3)
  • Control Engineering information integration and IIoT Webcast (Dec. 3)
  • Changing ROI for Industrial Robotics (Dec. 17)
  • Replacing Legacy Networking Protocols with Ethernet (March 10, 2017)
  • Industrial Internet of Things Webcast Series 2016, Part One: Effective Change Management (March 31, 2017)
  • Next-generation industrial HMIs (Apr. 14, 2017)
  • Industrial Internet of Things Webcast Series 2016, Part Two: Information Management for IIoT (June 2, 2017)
  • Industrial Internet of Things Webcast Series 2016, Part Three: Security for IIoT (scheduled for Oct. 20; archived through that date in 2017)

Additional topics offering a certificate of completion include industrial networking, Short-Circuit Current Rating (SCCR), automation efficiency, motors, and drives.

Control Engineering sister publications also offer credits for Webcasts that may be interesting and useful.

Topics from Plant Engineering that offer a CEU include electrical safety, energy management, arc flash protection, operations and maintenance collaboration, predictive maintenance, and power system reliability.

Topics from Consulting-Specifying Engineering that offer AIA CES-accredited Learning Units include backup power systems, cooling systems, and data center energy efficiency.

Think again: In addition to useful articles, see also Webcasts for credit along with research, digital reports, videos, and conferences, such as the Global Automation and Manufacturing Summit at IMTS and Marketing to Engineers.
