Very useful information

Rich, the continuing education program is a great service provided by design news.  Even for experienced practitioners it is useful in that it is useful to see up to date information on a topic.  The breadth of the topics is also very useful.  Keep it up.

Agreed, Naperlou. It's a great service. I've been amazed how many people attend the sessions from all over the world. They tend to get the buzz going by logging onto the site 30 minutes before class. I believe I've seen every continent represented among our attendees.

Hopefully this is something Design News can continue to expand into other topic areas.  We all know it's important to re-invent ourselves by keeping up with the latest technologies. Depending on your job, that can be more difficult.  These types of course are great opportunities.

Al, sorry to put you on the spot, but if you can suggest some topics, that would be great.

Unless I missed, these don't have any CEU's or similar attached, do they?  Just wondering, since that is a new requirement for ongoing PE licensing.

Rich,  Here are a couple ideas:
  • Basics of Wireless Networking: technology overview, how to select the right technology (cellular, WiFi, etc.), wireless for control applications
  • IEC 61131 Automation Programming: introduction to different programming languages for automation and control
