Postponed - MNSEA - Basic Training for Design Professional Site Visits
ACEC/MN and MNSEA in-person programming have been suspended until April 11 in response to COVID-19. This event is planned to be rescheduled, date TBD. Thank you for your understanding and patience. Information on the ACEC/MN response can be found here.
The Basic Training for Design Professional Site Visits is offered as a source of important information for the members of MNSEA and the design profession. This training session is a 3.5-hour session covering the basic site visit protocols in detail. This training is an excellent course for engineers, architects and other design professionals going to a jobsite and/or responding to an emergency. It is a solid source of training for design professionals who have not been formally trained to go into the field and a solid refresher for those who have previous experience in site visits. The training session provides a one-stop source for design professionals to acquire what they need to know to safely enter a site and help identify “what they do not know” for conditions of any complexity. Please join us for this valuable event.
