Urban Training Institute

Urban Engineers is excited to announce it is now a National Provider of continuing education through the Registered Continuing Education Program (RCEP). For the past five years, Urban Engineers has been a Northeast Regional Provider through RCEP.

“It was important to us to become a National Provider to demonstrate our continued commitment to our employees and clients nationwide,” said Kenneth R. Fulmer, PE, Urban’s president and CEO. “Our in-house Urban Training Institute is unique in our industry as it allows us to provide training to external students, and we have strategically planned to keep improving and expanding the program.”

Since its inception in 2007, the Urban Training Institute has awarded over 11,000 professional development hours to participants and has offered more than 125 courses, many developed by Urban's own subject matter experts. It is an Accredited Provider through the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).

“Our firm has been advancing professionals in engineering and in other disciplines for almost a decade through training from our skilled and practiced instructors,” said Carol Martsolf, PE, Urban’s director of training. “We are excited to be able to widen our reach with this additional certification.”

The Urban Training Institute strives to create exceptional learning experiences for employees and to extend Urban’s resources to all professionals in the architectural, engineering, and construction community seeking professional development. Course topics have included “Constructabilty Reviews: Save Time, Money, and Resources,” “Ethics for Engineers: Introduction, Case Studies, and Discussion,” and “The Role of the Resident Engineer in Construction Management." Online classes are offered to allow anyone to participate. The Institute is also a previous winner of the IACET Exemplar Award for Internal Training.
