ASME Online Instructor-Supported Courses allow you to pursue training on your own time at your own pace – 24/7 – while benefitting from instructor-supported learning with subject matter experts readily available through email for maximum flexibility.
To take one of the ASME online instructor-supported courses you should have a personal computer, Web browser, Internet connection and software capable of displaying PDF files (such as Adobe Reader.)
Some courses suggest accompanying texts, such as access to the related ASME Codebook but for most courses these are not mandatory. Some excerpts from ASME Codes are given as part of the course.
Classes are held in sessions covering a period of six weeks. During this time participants are not required to attend a specific online class, but can work through the course modules at their own pace during the session. For maximum benefit, participants should read all assignments and answer the questions in a timely manner. The assignments and quizzes are presented as a method to think about the material as well as evaluate participants' individual learning.
Communication with the Instructor
The instructor is available at any time during the six week session to answer questions via email. Additionally, some instructors choose to be available at a specific time each week should individuals want to talk directly via the telephone to clarify certain points or questions.
Course Evaluation and Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
ASME online courses provide Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Participants are evaluated on the results of exams and course assignments. To receive CEU units, the participant is expected to answer at least 70% of all test questions correctly and complete all assignments. The instructor may use other criteria, such as email discussions, to adjust the pass/fail grade of 70%.
