These online PDH continuing education courses are intended for structural and civil engineers. The courses focus on analysis and design in building materials such as reinforced concrete, steel, and wood. The courses cover topics such as loading (including wind and seismic), analysis and design.
Because the field of structural engineering is is quite wide, we have courses related to analysis and design of foundations, walls, columns, slabs and floor plates, beams, frames and many others. Hopefully you will find a course that is closely related to your area of practice. You may also want to explore areas outside your area of expertise and advance your knowledge in unfamiliar building materials, analysis methods and construction methodologies.
