Warrendale, PA – May 3, 2018 – SAE International announces a pilot program in partnership with MicroTek that will offer professional development courses via virtual training rooms, accessible all over the world.
For the pilot program, three SAE International instructors will present a course at a MicroTek facility in El Segundo, Calif. combining both in-class and remote participants. Virtual students will have the ability to both interact with the instructor and fellow in-class students as if they were physically in the classroom.
“The virtual classroom is the next, logical step in our efforts to provide easy-to-access, efficient and cost-effective learning options for today’s engineering professionals,” said Kevin Perry, EdD, Director of Professional Development for SAE International. “We are pleased to be partnering with MicroTek, a leader in this learning technology.”
