Subject Matter Experts
PDHengineer.com's course authors are leading subject matter experts in their fields of expertise. Their collective experience represents a wealth of practical knowledge gained through education and professional practice in the "real world."
PDHengineer.com takes a number of steps to ensure that our courses meet the standard of quality that our site visitors have come to expect:
In addition to the high standards that we set for PDHengineer course authors, PDHengineer.com has a rigorous process in place to review course material prior to publishing. Every course is reviewed and tested by professional engineers before the course is made available to the general public on the website. Outside consultants are hired to review courses prior to publication, when necessary, to supplement our in-house expertise.
Why do we set stringent standards for course authors?
PDHengineer.com believes that continuing education helps engineers to grow professionally, but more importantly helps to protect the public welfare. In the fast-paced world that we live in, it is difficult for any professional to keep up with all the changes. In a technology-focused profession such as engineering, it is particularly challenging to stay abreast of the latest codes, standards and practices.
Additionally, many of the basic concepts that we learned in college or used early in our careers are not retained because we just don't use them to perform our day-to-day job functions. For all of these reasons, we are very serious about continuing education. Our highest priority is to ensure that we offer quality courses that will help professional engineers to improve their skills and knowledge, which will in turn help to protect the public welfare.
The state engineering boards that have passed legislation requiring continuing education for engineers no doubt have the same objectives as we do. However, the state boards have chosen not to require any specific education or professional qualifications for continuing education providers. Rather, they typically state in broad terms that the provider must be knowledgeable by virtue of his/her education and experience.
PDHengineer.com feels that a thorough a review of a potential instructor's qualifications, work history, professional experience, past accomplishments, professional designations and awards allows us to more readily judge the ability to teach the subject material to professional engineers. We challenge the instructors to provide relevant, interesting course materials written in a clear concise manner. Every course is then independently reviewed by a licensed professional engineer who provides feedback and commentary to the author.
PDHengineer.com prides itself on imposing stringent standards on its course authors. It is one of the steps that we take to ensure the highest standard of quality for our courses.
