IEEE Validation of the Continuing Education Achievement of Engineers Registry System. Procedures for Use with a CPT 8000 Word Processor and Communications Package.
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc., New York, NY.
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) validation program is designed to motivate persons practicing in electrical and electronics engineering to pursue quality technical continuing education courses offered by any responsible sponsor. The rapid acceptance of the validation program necessitated the additional development of a system to handle course attendance and participant information data. This system (1) records course registrations, attendances, credit accumulations, and participant evaluations and sponsors' course status; (2) confirms participants' acceptable performances and course attendance for non-IEEE courses; (3) monitors IEEE's technical interest evaluations of course offerings, participants' course evaluation, and participation statistics; and (4) generates mailing labels and other items such as transcripts and Course Credit Award Certificates. Included in this document are registry system procedures and related materials (sample input cards, questionnaires, award certificates, transcripts). Supporting documentation, including a system description of the IEEE Continuing Education Registry (samples of computer generated letters, enclosures and data processing plans), explanatory notes and statistical tables relating to an IEEE mail survey, and IEEE Continuing Education Registry course evaluation questionnaire results are included in each of three appendices.
