Expert Value Added Training; 20+ Years Experience

Semtrain founder Professor Bobby Rauf began developing seminars over 20 years ago as community service for the PE community when he sensed that while there were plenty of PDH seminars, many did not deliver sufficient opportunity for refreshing and enhancing engineering related skills. Professor Rauf was also driven by the lack of cross training courses which led to the development of his first 8-PDH course titled “Electrical Engineering for Non-Electrical Engineers.” That course precipitated in his best selling 550+ page book, also titled: “Electrical Engineering for Non-Electrical Engineers.” Rest, as they say, is history! Aligned with that tradition, what sets Semtrain apart from other large PDH / CPC Course Providers, is that Semtrain does not launch or offer any course that does not deliver substantial amount knowledge and skills. Semtrain Team of seminar instructors consists of highly trained and experienced registered professional engineers in various engineering disciplines, including Civil, Structural, Mechanical, Electrical, and Chemical Engineering.

Our instructors & authors share with you, your engineers, and management a compendium of knowledge and expertise acquired over their long careers, in conjunction with the theoretical and academic aspects of engineering – something that transcends the purely academic learning at many colleges and universities.

The Semtrain team of instructors have years of domestic (US) and international seminar and professional training experience. Get more information on our PDH seminars and sign up for one of our 80+ courses available in live, online, face-to-face, A/V ON-Demand, and Self-Study Formats..
