Academy for Professionals
Research Reports, Webinars, Events and Programs for practicing professionals, researchers and engineers
On the Seminars and Webinars panel, below, you will find a collection of upcoming and archived resources related to NEES webinars. These cover diverse topics of professional development from reports on recent earthquakes (Haiti/Japan/New Zealand) to improved construction techniques and research findings from NEES activities.
The Programs panel provides access to news about new events and publications from past NEES (affiliates) events. This includes content from conference proceedings, posters and presentations.
The Continuing Education panel allows professionals to enroll in upcoming courses, view course topics as well as view archived data about previous events. Additionally researchers and their students can find training materials from the NEES site staff that will acquaint them with the equipment and support the efficient operation of their research projects.
Seminars and Webinars
The NEES community continually hosts seminars of interest to practicing professionals, researchers, their graduate students and others in higher-education. In this section you will find lists of webinars that have been archived on NEEShub or on the web pages of the NEES equipment sites.
The "Research to Practice" series, hosted by NEES and EERI, is a separate collection of webinars, Powerpoint presentations and related materials intended to teach civil and geotechnical engineering professionals how to incorporate the findings of NEES-R projects into their daily practice. The "Research to Practice" series is available here.

EESacademy hosts a number of free and paid courses using a popular online learning system, Moodle, embedded into NEEShub. You don’t need additional logon credentials to enter courses, just your NEEShub user account. Paid courses are managed with secure payment methods and often have professional credits associated with them.
|Wood Education Institute Certification
The Wood Education Institute was created in 2008 to address the glaring lack of wood design education at the university level. The national recognition of the value of the eco-friendly construction materials has elevated the need for using wood beyond residential construction. Not only is wood one of the oldest construction materials it is also recognized as being renewable, biodegradable, carbon negative, cost effective and a naturally pleasing material. The understanding of this material and its expanded and effective use in construction of non-residential structures is consistent with our National Goals and International obligations as it relates to the reduction of the carbon footprint.
These courses are part of a prototype course category for the TUES grant with RPI and SMU.
The set of courses in the Safety Training catalog certifies NEES Equipment Site users in the best practices for heat stress avoidance, power tool care and more.
NEEShub training courses include topics such as "Data Management" and "Data Upload and Visualization".
