>As I stated >earlier, I believe continuing education would be better served by architects >and contractors. We do plenty every time a new building code comes out. I didn't phrase my continuing education opinion very well. The benefits of continuing education come from focussed coursework rather than the general sorts of cramming people do when they take tests. A 3 day seminar on the effects of the Northridge Earthquake is better and more effective for working engineers than a test question or two or even a master's level course on aseismic design. People who do residential construction need a far different emphasis than someone who's into manufacturing facilities or power plants, and they also need exposure to professionals who do that work on a regular basis.
