Core Competencies for Professionals

CCP is an integrated series of eight seminars that provides a local, affordable, and accessible means to train key staff. Our faculty is comprised of national experts who are acknowledged leaders in their areas of expertise. The course has been carefully designed to provide the following features:

  • A Cohesive Seminar Series

    The program is designed as a series, with cohesive curriculum covering the spectrum of subjects important to aspiring principals.

  • Offered Annually

    The curriculum will be offered annually as a consistent means of providing, on a local level, a standardized path for training emerging leaders and senior managers of engineering companies.

  • A Limited Attendance Series

    Attendance will be limited to maximize learning and to ensure meaningful interaction and exchange of ideas.

  • Setting a Standard

    We are setting a new standard for training future leaders. Participants will be eligible for a total of 32 PDHs and will receive an “ACEC Washington Certificate of Completion” upon completion of the series.

  • ACEC Recognition

    ACEC Washington will recognize, on our web site and annually at our Spring Conference, the participants who complete this series, as the acknowledged leaders of tomorrow.
