Why is it important to become a registered professional engineer? In this webinar, we discuss reasons why it may become important for you, regardless of your current situation. We present examples of chemical engineers who learned that registration was required in order to do a particular job and, as a result, were either unable to do the job or faced the prospect of taking examinations that they would have been much better prepared for if they were still in school. Finally, we will present information on how to make it through the registration process.
