AEE Self-Study Professional Training Courses

AEE's Self-Study Professional Training offers continuing education courses in a home-study format, allowing students to complete professional education seminars wherever and whenever they choose, with no class meeting schedule to follow. After registering for a course, each student receives a printed course textbook, along with the course instructor's email address so that they can ask for help whenever they need it during the term.
