|Online university for all things printed circuit|
On Thursday, March 8 at 2-3PM EST, Kal Kawar discussed environmental regulations in an innovative forum called a live "online chat." Kal (CIH, PE) discussed SDS management, raw material disclosure compliance and product stewardship. Participants came virtually face-to-face with an expert -- and peers -- to ask questions, share problems and get solutions in real time in this exciting, one-of-a-kind forum.
A live chat is like the "chat" part of the best webinar you've ever attended. Its key feature is that participants drive the conversation, unlike a webinar, where a presenter simply presents.
The event is hosted by online educational institution, Printed Circuit University. Printed Circuit University is devoted to helping engineers, designers, fabricators, assemblers and other PCB professionals advance their careers through online education in topics and technologies directly related to the electronics industry. The content includes free access to lectures, white papers, videos, chats and other media. In addition, subscriptions are available on a pay-per-session basis or an annual subscription that allows access to all content on the site.
