  • Relevant committee involvement
  • Presenting relevant subject matter at Industry Conference
  • In-house training that is accompanied by a syllabus.
  • Third-party training relative to product or system-specific manufacturer training. I.e., welding, rigging, OSHA, CWA, ASTM, TSSA, AIMS, NAARSO, and PPE inspection training.
  • Documented mentorship supported by your supervisor.

If you are unsure if a workshop or course would count toward CEUs, please feel free to send the course information to Heather Brooks, Program Manager, for approval.
