ECS Short Courses are all day instruction designed to provide students or the seasoned professional a wide range of topics. Taught by industry experts, the small class size makes for an excellent opportunity for personalized instruction.
ECS sponsors short courses, each spring and fall, in conjunction with its biannual meetings. These courses are usually run from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM on the opening Sunday of the meeting. Short course notes are available at the time of the course.
Registration fees cover the course, luncheon, coffee breaks, and text materials; these fees are not applicable to any other activities of the Society meetings. Students are offered a 50% discount on course registration. Advance registration is required.
All courses are subject to cancellation pending an appropriate number of advance registrants.
