Many if not most of the PEs in practice do need PDH each year to renew their licenses including me. While it would be nice to aim at the Industrial Engineering factory guys as well as the parts and software guys, the ability to receive PDH throughout the year makes meeting the licensing requiement fairly easy. Maybe I'll learn something in areas outside of the NEC.
Excellent Information Richard. I can certainly agree that my time spent on Design News Daily represents a great learning tool. There have been numerous articles posted that have aided my efforts in finding new vendors and new ways to solve engineering problems. It's a marvelous method of keeping up with technology. IEEE should definitely be commended for their efforts in presenting these classes.
