    NICET: Developing a Qualified Workforce

    May 29, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM (ET)

    Even the most well-prepared project plan is only as good as the people who carry it out. Having a qualified workforce is essential to increasing productivity, quality, safety on the job site.

    But how can you ensure that your workforce is made up of the most qualified individuals capable of ensuring public protection?

    Through credentialing with the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET), professionals in engineering technologies can set themselves apart as the most exceptional technicians in their field.

    Join NICET’s Chip Hollis as he discusses the ways in which credentialed technicians earn certifications to further their careers, earn the respect and confidence of employers, and continue to safeguard the public.

    During this behind the scenes look at certification and test development, you will learn how NICET examinations:

    • Distinguish the qualified from the not-yet qualified
    • Measure the knowledge and skills of individual test-takers
    • Administer exams that are fair, valid, reliable, and legally defensible

    This webinar will also cover changes from the old paper-pencil work element model to the new computer-based standard model. Mr. Hollis will explain how NSPE’s credentialing arm is taking advantage of changes in technology to comply with certification best practices.

    Presentation by Col. Mike Phillips, former US Air Force U2 Pilot

    Col. Mike 'Lips" Phillips
    Col. Mike 'Lips" Phillips is a 30 year veteran of the US Air Force. This high flying U-2 spy pilot saw the four corners of a hostile world from over 70,000 feet up and has lived to tell his tale. His adventures saw him flying secret missions behind the Iron Curtain during the Cold War and over the deserts of the Middle East during a couple of hot ones too... During most of his career he was not allowed to speak of such things but a changing US world view now permits Col Phillips limited speaking engagements. Come hear what it's like to go to work everyday in a space suit, where a pin hole could cause your blood to boil and your food is served in a tube. Col Phillip's startling honesty makes it fun, interesting and yet he still speaks in a down to earth manner which you just won't find anywhere else!
