Course Syllabus




If you're an engineer looking to increase your generator knowledge while achieving some professional development hours (PDH), we suggest you explore are Professional Development Seminar courses.


Each seminar was designed specifically for practicing engineers who wish to expand their understanding of current technologies, sizing, codes & standards, switching technologies and reliable design characteristics surrounding emergency power systems. If you are a design, sales or consulting engineer, this series is for you. It’s a joint effort of the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) and Generac Power Systems. 


Participants who successfully complete an individual seminar will receive 2 Professional Development Hours (PDH) accredited by the Milwaukee School of Engineering. Those who complete 5 Professional Development Seminar Series Modules and complete the final assessments will be awarded 1 Continuing Education Unit (CEU) and/ or 10PDH.
