NWETC's New Year's Resolutions

People aren’t the only ones who make resolutions this time of year. Organizations do it too, though we often call them “goals”. Well, our goals…er, Resolutions for 2013 are all about giving more choices to you, our course attendees.

If you’ve seen our “About Us” page, you may have noticed that one of the things we highlight when describing ourselves is that we often update our offerings with “new, relevant material”. Making sure that the content that we present is up-to-date and useful to all of our attendees is always a goal, but this year, we are going even further.

In 2013, we are committed to doing what many of our customers have requested: presenting more courses in more locations. There are three ways that we’re doing this:

  • Adding some new topics: We’ll be adding 2 new subjects to our Water category, and one to Chemistry. Titles aren’t set, so we can’t say more right now, but it won’t be long. Keep a lookout for them!
  • Bringing back some past favorites: “Natural Resource Damage Assessment”, “Environmental Forensics”, “ARC GIS for Fish Biologists”, and “Wetlands Science and Delineation”. There may be more as well, but these are the ones we’re bringing back first.
  • Expanding the list of locations where we offer courses. In addition to the usual cities (Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, etc.) where we train, our instructors will be visiting some new places such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Chicago, among others.

So that’s a lot of new things-but we’re not finished yet! We want your feedback to let us know if there are any topics that we’re not offering that would be useful to you and colleagues in your field. Send us a note at noting the type of subject matter, and who the target audience is. We will consider all suggestions, and implement any that fit with our current catalog.

So thank you for making 2012 a great year for us (did you see that we trained our 10,000th attendee?) and for being a part of our expansion in 2013! Please keep checking our Course Catalog to see how we're doing at accomplishing our resolutions. And if you’re still looking for a resolution of your own-how about resolving to add to your professional knowledge with some courses from NWETC?
