Unlock the World ofStandards Education
The global economy has raised the stakes in standards development. Companies are competing for widespread adoption of their technologies, and the race to develop globally accepted standards has reached new levels of competition. Educational institutions are woefully unprepared to teach our college students about Standards and the role they play in global trade. New engineers are entering the workforce without a basic literacy of standards. At the same time, retirement of the Baby Boomer generation is diminishing standards literacy from the workforce. According to the Pew Research Center, 10,000 people will reach retirement age each day for the next 19 years. This prediction translates to a startling drain on the institutional and corporate knowledge base. Our Standards courses address that drain, and helps the U.S. become more competitive in the global economy.
