John Dalziel's insight:

By signing up they'll automatically receive an email link to the next event. They’ll also earn one Professional Development Hour (PDH) for every webinar they attend – allthey have to do is fill out and submit a PDH Form and e-mail a completed Webinar Evaluation Form (located on the individual webinar page) to eab-ceuadmin@IEEE.ORG. Their certificate request will then be completed within 5-7 business days.
A fresh topic is suggested each month.

Sadly, as our daily lives become more and more digital some things fall by the way side as they are replaced by newer, you would like to think, "better" devices.

 

The Museum of obsolete Objects makes sure we don't forget those fallen appliances, tools and gadgets and enables those of us old enough to remember, to relive those bygone times.
