Additional Details:
ARE WE GETTING CEU CREDITS FOR THIS CLASS?
We will be offering 0.5 CEU's for the course here in Orlando. The state of
Florida has recognized IEEE as a provider of continuing education. The
attendee is responsible for determining if the class qualifies as a
"technical" course, based on their area of practice.
 
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO GET THE CEU CREDITS?
You will need to bring the registration fee, if any, in Cash or Check. If
you are an IEEE Member you will need your membership number. If you are a
Florida PE, you will need your PE Number. (We have to report PE Attendance
to the state.)

WHAT IS A PIZZA AND LEARN?
We will all get together, eat some pizza and try to learn (or not learn) a
little something. This Pizza and Learn speaker is being provided by
Enersys. The presentation will be an overview of current (power system
level) battery technology and their applications as well as a glimpse of
what the future holds in battery technology.
 
WHERE IS BLACK AND VEATCH?
Black and Veatch's office are located on the SE corner of Church and Orange
in downtown Orlando. We have a volunteer who will help us with parking in
