Alpha Seminars

Continuing Education (CE) is a way professionals maintain, improve and update their skills in their practicing fields. It is also a way for learning new skills, becoming familiar with other fields of practice and broadening over-all base of knowledge. Some PE and PS Boards require a certain minimum CE level for continuing licensure.

Since 2003, Alpha Engineering Services has provided opportunities for CE for professionals and others through seminars in different topics including Mine Law and Regulations, Mine Ventilation and Mine Surveying and Mapping. These seminars are prepared and presented:

  • Through sponsoring organizations such as the WV Society of Professional Surveyors, Bridgemont College, or KY Society of Professional Surveyors
  • For private companies to address specific requests, training and professional needs of their employees and staff
  • For interested persons and professionals, Alpha Engineering Services schedules seminars at different locations and times. For additional information, please inquire below.
