Education and Training Working Group

Aims & Objectives

NAFEMS Education and Training Working Group has three main tasks. These are:

Technical Areas Covered

All educational aspects of FE and CFD technology


Terms of Reference

The NAFEMS Education and Training Working Group (ETWG) is formed to examine the education and training needs for all numerical analysts and to provide information and documents to satisfy these needs.

Aims:

To provide the educational and training material to satisfy the requirements of:

(i)         Less-experienced analysts, to enable them to produce reliable and accurate numerical predictions.

(ii)        More-experienced analysts, to enable them to extend their area of expertise and to share their knowledge and expertise with the wider community.

Course Accreditation:

The Education and Training Working Group is responsible for accrediting courses run by NAFEMS and other external agencies. A formal NAFEMS accreditation procedure will be followed.  If appropriate, the Education and Training Working Group will issue guidelines for the technical content and assessment methods of accredited courses. 

Course Approval

NAFEMS recognizes that it has a role to play in working with Universities and other course providers, to help define and deliver the competencies required in the engineering analysis and simulation area.

The Education and Training Working Group  ‘Course Approval Scheme’ has been created to address this need. The approval scheme is based on the competencies defined in the core Finite Elements Analysis module of the NAFEMS Professional Simulation Engineer Scheme.​

The 'Course Approval Scheme' is aimed at module approval​ ​as opposed to a more rigorous ​'​Accreditation​' process​.​ 

The ‘Course Approval Scheme’ procedure can be downloaded using this link.

Professional Simulation Engineer Scheme:

The Education and Training Working Group is responsible for monitoring the Professional Simulation Engineer (PSE) Scheme and the requirements for continuous professional development.
