The certificate of attendance is for 1.0 professional development hour (equivalent to 0.1 continuing education unit in most states.) Check back later for information on upcoming webcasts.
Groups who plan to view the webcast together will be allowed to download and complete a Multi-Viewer Registration Form during and immediately following the webcast. Only one person needs to register for the webcast and that person is responsible for submitting the Multi-Viewer Form.

Performance Validation and Specification Strategies
Airing on Tuesday, October 18, 2016 at 12pm CT
When writing specifications for civil projects, the primary objective for the engineer of record should be to ensure that the completed project performs in accordance with the design requirements. It is therefore critical to understand how the parameters specified for products and materials relate to their performance in the constructed project. For many materials, there are standard tests available to evaluate key properties that relate directly to accepted design methods. However, in some cases, this approach is inadequate because there is not a direct link between specific material properties and performance. This session will discuss concepts for performance specifications that can address these issues and ensure design integrity.
Instructions for Archived Webcasts
To earn credit for an archived webcast, you must register to view the on-demand event and complete the supplied quiz after viewing the presentation. If you answer at least 80 percent of the questions correctly, you can immediately download a certificate of completion and will be awarded 1.0 professional development hour (equivalent to 0.1 continuing education unit in most states.)
