TTA Diamond Engineer Program

In March 2023, the TTA launched a new continuing education program, the TTA Diamond Engineer 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 a 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 by attending other educational 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 Sessions, Ray Ridley Seminars, PSMA High Frequency/Magnetics Seminar, educational sessions can be in-person or virtual.

*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.

Example:

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

Attendance Verification

After attending an in-person or virtual event, individuals must complete an Attendance Verification Form and submit it to info@transformer-assn.org. All Attendance Verification Forms must be submitted within 30 days of the event. CE credits will not be awarded if submitted after the deadline.
