JSM continuing education courses fulfill the following class descriptions:

An in-depth presentation of a specific area of statistical theory, methodology, or application. The material covered may focus on “cutting edge” methods or other more established topics.
A broad overview of an established area of statistical theory or methodology suitable either as a refresher “course” or as an introduction to the field.

Why Make a CE Presentation?

  • To share your expertise in reviewing and summarizing fundamental topics in statistics
  • To present state-of-the-art techniques used by data analysts and practicing statisticians
  • To encourage innovative ideas in data analysis and new theoretical developments
  • To promote growth in specialized areas of statistics and related fields
  • To serve as a vehicle for informing the statistical profession about related tools that enhance productivity and efficiency

During the CE course submission process, you will be asked to supply the following:

  • Title of course
  • Name and contact information for each instructor in order of presentation
  • If more than one presenter, who will serve as contact person
  • Course length
