For outstanding initiatives that provide technical training for engineers worldwide, ASME has been added to the 2004 Associations Advance America Honor Roll, a national awards program sponsored by the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE).

ASME’s Global Training Program was recognized for its success in offering live short courses to engineers and technical professionals in their own native languages. ASME does this by training and authorizing local instructors to teach ASME-approved technical courses right in their own countries. Last year, ASME offered over 40 programs to nearly 700 engineers in countries including Argentina, Bahrain, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Egypt, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru and Trinidad.

“ASME’s program truly embodies the spirit of the Associations Advance America campaign. It is an honor and an inspiration to showcase this activity as an example of the many contributions associations are making,” said Association Advance America Committee Chair, Kris Cook.

The ASME Continuing Education Institute has established the Global Training Program to expand its continuing education activities to meet the professional development needs of engineers and other technical professionals worldwide. Recognizing that education and training can be provided more efficiently and affordably by locally trained content experts, ASME currently partners with local technical organizations and engineers to develop, market, conduct or deliver short courses for the local market.
