At the 66th Annual Conference, the SAWE Training program offers the following classes for your professional development. The material offered in the classes should be complemented with on-the-job experience and other professional development before you are proficient in any area. As the classes are offered to expand the expertise of all Mass Properties Engineers, we hope MPEs from the marine field will take airline or aircraft classes. The classes consist of lectures, exercises, and discussion. Each student will receive a copy of the training materials and a certificate upon completion. The dress code is business casual since all the classes will be held in the hotel. SAWE reserves the right to cancel or merge classes if registration before April 25 does not meet the minimum standards for student interaction.
