Who Should Attend

Engineers and designers involved in distribution will find this course helpful. In addition, supervisory or management personnel who desire a review of distribution practices and standards, or who are new to power distribution, will benefit from this course.

Continuing Education Certificate
All attendees will receive a continuing education certificate worth 16.0 Professional Development Hours (PDHs) by RMEL, upon completion of the course. There will be 1.0 professional hour (PDH) given for attending the Member Roundtable. RMEL serves a large territory in which attendees participate in a number of accrediting organizations, each with their own requirements. Depending on the certifying body you are affiliated with, RMEL PDHs may be applied towards your recertification credit. It is the responsibility of the attendee to determine if the credits are applicable to their certifying body and how they may be applied. Use the event brochure, and agenda to determine how the content applies to your certification. The attendee is also responsible for verifying how the quantity of RMEL PDHs convert to your certifying body credits. Typically 1.0 PDH is equal to .1 CEU, but you should always verify the conversion scale.
