Continuing Education

AIChE-DVS offers a series of talks on technical topics.  Upcoming sessions are described below. These 60 minute sessions will be planned to qualify for one hour Professional Development Credit.

These evening sessions include a buffet dinner, and are $30 for members and $35 for non-members. One (1) PDH is provided toward PE and other certification accreditation.

Further details for the specific meeting will be available on this web page when timely.

We offer PDH sessions both at our usual location in Conshohocken, PA (with kind permission of Jacobs Engineering) and in Newark, DE (with kind permission of KBR Inc). Occasional sessions will be held at other locations.  These talks will be arranged on different dates, and may be on different topics.

A preliminary schedule of the sessions is given below.  Some of these events may be recorded or published on WEBEX to make available for remote attendees.

We would welcome volunteers to share their expertise with us, by giving a one hour presentation on a topic of technical interest. Please contact Cynthia Tarun at cbtarun@gmail.com , or Laura-Ann Chin at lchin@geieng.com.
