RedVector Expands Engineering Professional Development Training

Release date: 4/25/2017

Due to overwhelming demand, RedVector has expanded its highly-utilized training series, the AEC Success Certification Program, to help forward-thinking firms improve non-technical performance.

Tampa — April 19, 2017 — RedVector, the leader in eLearning and performance support solutions for the architecture, engineering, construction (AEC), industrial and facility management industries, has expanded its highly-utilized training series, the AEC Success Certification Program, to help employees advance productivity, leadership, communication and related skills, or “soft” skills.
 
In a recent survey of engineers in industries ranging from aerospace and defense to oil and gas, respondents said the most valuable business skills for engineers were problem solving (55%), high ethical standards (50%), listening and communication (40%), creativity (37%) and teamwork (30%). In response to the survey performed by Wiley, a global publisher of numerous prestigious engineering journals and IEEE, the world's largest technical professional organization for the advancement of technology, Wiley author Thereza Macnamara said, “you have to accept that actual technical knowledge may be only 15% to 20% of your job.”
 
Leading AEC firms have made it clear that market conditions are driving a tremendous need for engineering centric, soft-skills training solutions  so expanding our AEC Success  training program was a no-brainer, said RedVector Product Director Bobby Person. “Research shows that more often,  firm’s projects are falling short of goal due to non-technical challenges,” he said. “As such, we  are fiercely dedicated to providing the highest quality, most impactful soft-skill training solutions specifically for engineers; in the formats demanded by today’s professionals including video, mobile, short duration content. Productivity enhancements, improved communications and customer relations gains driven by the AEC success training program directly correlate to more projects being delivered on time, in budget.”  .
 
RedVector’s 6 new engineering professional development courses are:
• How to Create a Focused, Productive and Low Stress Career and Life
• Five Steps to Effective Email Management
• Strategies for a Successful Client Interview
• How to Find and/or Become a Mentor
• Conflict Resolution in the Workplace

Engineers, designers, project managers and other AEC professionals who successfully complete courses within the series will be awarded an official RedVector AEC Success certificate of completion, which can be documented on resumes and even utilized in a firm’s marketing collateral.
