AMAZING Education

UCT is known for its outstanding educational program – so much so, industry associations come to us to help round out their programs! Attendees are drawn to UCT because of the interactive presentations and panel discussions that focus on what matters in our industry. A technical symposium, tutorials, new technology presentations, panel discussions, case histories and specialty workshops are all incorporated into the week-long education program. Some of the specialty sessions are offered before and after UCT and feature industry certification. The primary UCT program, which runs Jan. 19-21, qualifies for CEUs/PDHs in conjunction with the University of Texas at Arlington. Here’s a look at what will be featured in Tampa:
