Risk Management Webinar Series Continues; CEUs Available
Aug 16, 2011 (05:08 PM EDT)


WASHINGTON, Aug. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Engineers who understand risk management and its application to a project have a better chance of being hired than those who don't. You can learn more about this key knowledge and how it might help boost your career with the second in IEEE-USA's six-part Webinar series on risk management.

"Application of Risk Management During Project Definition" will be held Wednesday, 17 August from noon to 1 p.m. ET. It will provide attendees with an overview of how engineers employ risk management during the definition of user needs and system requirements. Identifying and mitigating risk before the design process begins is now required by the Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Aviation Administration, and helps to ensure a robust design that limits redesign activity.

Paul Kostek, an IEEE senior member, will lead the Webinar. He has more than 30 years experience in systems engineering, and has performed safety risk management for avionics systems and medical devices.

The cost is $19 for IEEE members and $38 for nonmembers. To register, see https://www.cvent.com/events/ieee-usa-webinar-series-on-risk-management/registration-b35206d4acf946c4bf981c338e526c84.aspx.

IEEE-USA's risk management series is designed to provide relevant and applicable information that technology and operational professionals can use in their jobs and enhance their long-term employability. The series focuses on risk-based problem solving and decision making, and the application of risk management standards and practices to public safety and critical infrastructure protection. http://www.ieeeusa.org/careers/webinars/2011/Risk-Management.html

The remaining sessions of the series are as follows (all times Eastern):

"Risk Management Standards and Decision Making," 21 September, 2-3 p.m.
