RE: AISC eLearning

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Active involvement in Structural Engineers Association activities, I'm
currently mentoring a structural student, and I'm doing independent
research on using carbon fiber composites for dynamic applications (by
testing carbon fiber components in my race car - but it is legitimate).
I have had these activities pre-approved by the Oregon State Board.
Alaska now requires PDH's but I haven't set up any pre-approved
activities with them, yet.  Also, you can pick up "free" PDH's from the
Simpson Strong Tie people as well as all the concrete anchor mfr's. who
are trying to get us to spec their products.

I have no objections to paying for PDH's.  In fact the AISC prices are
very reasonable.  But when the subject source of those PDH's is
presented to me, it would save my time to please advise that there is a
cost.


Sincerely,

Bob Garner

Just curious, Robert, but where can you get free PDHs?

For me, it is understood.
