Continuing Education Program
Earn your diamonds with the TTA Continuing Education Program!
In March 2023, the TTA will launch a new Continuing Education Program. The program's goal is to recognize and award those individuals committed to furthering their knowledge and education in the transformer field. Becoming a TTA diamond engineer is great way to distinguish yourself from your professional colleagues and demonstrate your dedication to the transformer industry.
Earn Your Diamonds
Attend industry education sessions to earn credit hours and work your way up to becoming a 5-Diamond TTA Engineer! Individuals may only earn one diamond status per year, but they can carry over five CE credits to the subsequent year.
How To Earn Continuing Education (CE) Credit
Individuals can earn continuing education credits by attending technical sessions at TTA meetings and other industry events. Educational programs and activities submitted for CE credit should be in subjects in the field of transformers design topics. Examples include TTA Technical Sessions, APEC Magnetics Industry Session, Ray Ridley Seminar, PSMA High Frequency/Magnetics Seminar.
*One credit can be earned for attending the TTA Spring and/or Fall Meetings
Calculating CE Credits
One CE credit is granted for every 30 minutes of qualifying content. Content sessions under 30 minutes will not qualify for credit. Content sessions that are less than 60 minutes but more than 30 minutes will be rounded down to one CE credit. Attendance record-keeping is the responsibility of each individual.
20-minute session = 0 credit
30-minute session = 1 credit
45-minute session = 1 credit
60-minute session = 2 credits
90-minute session = 3 credits
After attending an in-person or virtual event, individuals must complete an Attendance Verification Form and submit it to email@example.com. All Attendance Verification Forms must be submitted within 30 days of the event. CE credits will not be awarded if submitted after the deadline.

You've Earned Diamond Status, Now What?
Once an individual obtains a diamond status, they will be awarded a certificate and recognized during the TTA Spring Meeting. The accomplishment will also be recognized on the TTA website and social media accounts.
Individuals are also encouraged to share this outstanding achievement with their networks via social media, company blogs, email signatures, etc.
To maintain your diamond status, each individual is required to obtain ten continuing education credits each year.
