Earning Continuing Education Units for Participation in PICMET ‘08

PICMET is able to award Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and Continuing Professional Development Units (CPDs) to those who attend this conference. The CEU is the nationally recognized unit in the United States for measuring individual participation in continuing education activities that do not earn academic credit. Generally, CEUs can be awarded for qualified activities such as short-courses, workshops, seminars and trainings.

The CEU often is considered by professional organizations as an indicator that the participating professional is pursuing continuing education within his/her chosen discipline. Some organizations or licensors require their members or licensees to earn and report CEUs or PDUs (Professional Development Units) to keep membership status.

One CEU equals ten clock-hours of contact time, so each 90-minute conference session will earn 0.15 CEU. Participation in plenary sessions will not earn CEUs. (For your reference, one CEU equals 10 PDUs.)

CEUs will be awarded only to PICMET ’08 participants who request CEU certification. CEUs cannot be awarded for participation in sessions that take place prior to the completion of your CEU registration so, if you would like to earn CEUs, you must register and pay prior to the start of the conference.

PICMET is also able to award Continuing Professional Development Units (CPD’s) to those South African Engineers who attend this conference. Please see ECSA link (www.ecsa.co.za) for validation number (UPGSTM2008- 0015).
