NAFEMS PSE Competencies
NAFEMS run the Professional Simulation Engineer certification scheme which enables practising simulation engineers to obtain certification useful to themselves in their career and also to their managers in being able to select candidates for a particular project. The PSE scheme allows practising engineers to select from a range of competency groups and then be assessed for this group of competencies at a variety of levels from basic to advanced. A candidate's capabilities are judged by NAFEMS PSE Assessors and Angus Ramsay of RMA is a founding member of the PSE Certification Scheme and undertakes PSE interviews for NAFEMS.
The PSE competencies are presented on the NAFEMS website - NAFEMS PSE Competency Tracker. In the course of RMA's business in conducting FEA for clients and in other technical activities, a range of PSE competencies is covered. Where this is the case it is useful to present this to the practising engineering community in order to assist them in their work and, potentially, to lead them through the competencies required for PSE certification.
