Guidelines for SAE Instructors 

SAE Professional Development is always seeking experienced engineering professionals with industry/ academic backgrounds to propose and instruct seminars and web seminars. SAE contracts with instructors to present seminars and web seminars on current, applications-oriented subjects, and fundamental and advanced process theory courses. The instructors are responsible for the course outline development; class notes including activities, practice sets, and case studies; presentation aides and materials; and instruction of the material on mutually agreeable dates. All SAE seminars and web seminars are subject to peer review by the Technical Review Committee (TRC) of the Continuing Professional Development Group before the presentation. The TRC evaluates, approves and recommends whether a seminar should be included in the schedule. If the reviewers have suggestions for a course, an SAE program developer will work with the instructor to incorporate those recommendations.

SAE handles all course administration: scheduling, promotion and advertising, registration, and post-course evaluations.

SAE Seminars are usually one to three days in length and consist of approximately six and a half teaching hours per day. SAE Web Seminars are usually two to eight hours in length taught in a series of two-hour sessions.

Seminars are presented at SAE’s Troy office, in conjunction with SAE Events, and as in-house education and training for requesting companies. Web Seminars are presented live online for open enrollment and can also be presented as corporate learning engagement.

A seminar/web seminar honorarium is offered an expense when required, are reimbursed by SAE. 

Intellectual property rights typically remain with the developer/instructor.

The instructor is responsible for developing the master support materials and obtaining permission to reprint copyrighted material from outside sources. SAE will then handle all reproduction and forwarding to the seminar site or provide access to remote learners through the SAE Learning Center.
