We understand the financial pressures faced by professional organizations in this difficult economic environment, and we want to help these groups maintain high-quality CE programs.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 22, 2012
aecKnowledge, a leading provider of advanced continuing education (CE), announces its In-Place Continuing Education Program for use by professional organizations that serve the AEC community. The program provides a simple, low-cost method to deliver distilled, practical, peer-reviewed knowledge to association members. In addition, the program offers organizations' the opportunity to augment CE revenue.
Through the In-Place Continuing Education Program, organization chapters can purchase aecKnowledge courses at sharply discounted group rates then present them at events throughout the year. The courses, many of which are delivered by top thought leaders, contain objective, unbiased programs free of promotional content. As part of the launch of this program, each chapter may choose one course at no cost.
Chapters may choose from aecKnowledge’s library of advanced curricula spanning the following knowledge areas (excerpts can be viewed at CE Excerpts):
- Codes, Standards and Guidelines
- Leadership Effectiveness
- Practice Management
- Risk Management
- Sustainable Design
In addition to delivering high-quality courses, the In-Place Continuing Education Program offers professional organizations an attractive financial package. Chapters retain all profits from attendance and sponsorship fees.
“We understand the financial pressures faced by professional organizations in this difficult economic environment, and we want to help these groups maintain high-quality CE programs," Michael Strogoff, FAIA, President of aecKnowledge, explained. "Retention of program fees, together with one free course, will give chapters a much-needed revenue boost while also ensuring that they can continue to provide their members with access to superior educational opportunities."
aecKnowledge's courses are approved for continuing education units by AIA/CES and/or GBCI. The courses are also accepted by many states to fulfill CE requirements for ongoing licensure. CE units are reported directly to AIA by aecKnowledge, thereby easing administrative burdens on chapters.
