How do you get approval to take continuing education?

As the education director at SBE, I often wonder how you, the broadcast engineer, get approval to participate in continuing education offerings. Help your fellow engineer by completing the short poll and posting your comments by clicking on the icon to the right of the title on how you’ve gotten approval to take continuing education.

Exactly how do you convince your manager that it’s a good idea for you to be away from the office? How do you get your company to finance it? I have provided some ideas on the SBE website, but I’d like to hear from you.

The SBE education program offers various ways for you to continue to learn. Have you found it easier or harder to gain approval for any of the following types of educational programs?

Webinars by SBE is quite popular since there are no travel costs or extra time away from the office.  Webinars are convenient for engineers with hectic and unpredictable work schedules.

SBE University is popular due to the fact that the courses are available online anytime.  Courses on SBE University offer a more in-depth look at specific subjects.

The Ennes Workshops offer engineers an affordable day out of the office to gain insight into new technology in the industry, as well as face-to-face time with other engineers.

The SBE Leadership Development Course is a three-day course offered to engineers to refine their leadership skills while understanding and improving interactions with others.

The Society works tirelessly to offer you affordable educational opportunities and we want to be sure you have all the tools you need to take advantage of these programs.
