Conferences Provide Focused Learning on Software for Specific Architectural, Engineering, Construction, and Operations Workflows
Exton, Pa. U.S.A. – Feb. 25, 2015 – Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the leading company dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions for sustaining infrastructure, today announced that registration is now open for its highly anticipated 2015 Bentley LEARNing Conferences in the U.S. Each conference delivers a highly relevant learning experience to attending infrastructure practitioners through hands-on workshops and information-rich lectures. All those with Bentley LEARN Subscriptions or Enterprise License Subscriptions are eligible to attend – at no additional cost as a benefit of their subscriptions. Those without a subscription may purchase one during registration for $1,495.00.
The individual conferences are dedicated to software for specific architectural, engineering, construction, and operations (AECO) workflows, including bridge/bridge inspection, building design and analysis, GIS and mapping, plant, road and site, water analysis and design, and more. Sessions help attendees take full advantage of their Bentley software in the shortest possible time.
Jay Wasson, P.E., deputy commissioner, engineering and asset management, Indiana Department of Transportation, said, “I am very excited about the Bentley LEARNing Conference being hosted here in Indianapolis. The event will benefit both INDOT and our consultant partners. The conference provides attendees with a fantastic opportunity to sharpen their skills in effectively applying Bentley software in their project workflows, as well as to cultivate valuable relationships with industry peers and Bentley product experts.”
George Church, Bentley Systems senior vice president, Bentley CONNECT LEARNservices, said, “The turnout at our multi-location Bentley LEARNing Conferences in 2014 was fantastic, enabling us to provide learning sessions to many more infrastructure practitioners than at our single conference in 2013. Even more gratifying was the positive feedback we received from attendees, with the vast majority telling us that our hands-on workshop, lecture, and networking format is exactly how they like to learn, and the content we provide helps them do their jobs more efficiently and effectively when they return to the office. In 2015 we are expanding the number of workshops and networking and social learning opportunities – to further increase the value of our innovative Bentley LEARNing Conferences to our subscribers.”
Conference networking opportunities enable users to connect with industry peers from user groups, special interest groups (SIGs), and/or Bentley Communities, and to interface with Bentley subject-matter experts. The popular “social dinner” enables attendees to connect – in a casual, relaxed environment – with other software users and Bentley colleagues who have similar professional interests.
Attendees earn International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) continuing education units (CEUs) for many of the Bentley LEARNing Conference sessions they successfully complete. Bentley is able to offer these through its Authorized Provider accreditation with the IACET. The CEUs will help attendees achieve their continuing education goals and, thereby, also help advance their careers.
In 2015 there will be multiple Bentley LEARNing Conferences co-located in three U.S. locations, with each highlighting distinct professional communities. The schedule of the 2015 Bentley LEARNing Conferences in the U.S., including the primary themes, location, and dates of each, is as follows:
