The Engineering Society of Detroit (ESD) provides professional engineers in Michigan with opportunities to meet continuing education requirements.
Current PEs can take our review course classes on an a la carte basis to satisfy state requirements. Close to 60 different courses are available to choose from. The instructorled, threehour and halfday courses are taught by industry professionals. Courses are held in the evening on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and in the morning and afternoon on Saturdays.
Cost
ESD Members: $100 per fourhour course, $75 per threehour course
NonMembers: $125 per fourhour course, $100 per threehour course
Each course earns three or four hours of continuing education. A Continuing Professional Development Activity Certificate of Completion will be provided along with a description of the program.
