“We’re excited to offer continuing education to top industry designations through our magazine,” stated IECA president Adam Dibble, CPESC, CESSWI. “We’re honored ECI has selected IECA to offer educational benefits and value to potential members. This supports my initiative to create and expand meaningful industry relationships and to be recognized as a leading source for industry education. I’m excited about the direction Rob Anderson is taking ECI and more excited about the future opportunities for both organizations.”
One unit will be given for six-month participation, two units for nine months and three units for 12 months participation. Credits are awarded for professionals who seek membership in IECA and read peer-reviewed technical articles monthly to keep current on industry challenges.
