The 2019 Day of Training will be Thursday, March 7 at the Fayetteville Town Center in Fayetteville, AR. Last year, the Day of Training was the largest engineering conference in Northwest Arkansas, and we expect this year's attendance to break records again. Focused around four learning objectives: Body of Knowledge, Government/Regulatory, Local Affairs, and Professional Development, the day offers 8 PDHs over a variety of interesting and relevant topics at a low cost. An exhibit hall offers a diverse group of sponsors, ranging from suppliers, contractors, and recruiters. Click here for information on the 2018 event.
