Virtual ‘Fundamentals’ program draws well, format likely to return next year

Converting the WAI’s Fundamentals of Wire & Cable Manufacturing Program (Fundamentals) to a virtual form that presented over seven consecutive Wednesdays in September and October was not without occasional technical challenges, but overall, it got a hearty “well done,” based on comments from the participants.

The final count for attendance was 119, with participants from 28 countries. The traditional Fundamentals program has drawn more, but one of the advantages of the virtual format was that it allowed attendees to take part that may not have been able to travel for the two-day format. The WAI plans to continue staging the live Fundamentals course at Interwire and Wire Expo, but future virtual presentations are also possible.

One participant, ArgusIoT founder and CEO Parag Panse, who attended all 13 sessions (three live and the rest by watching the video recording later), said that he liked the format. “I would certainly recommend this Fundamentals training to my own employees as well as to other companies. I was happy with the way the program was organized and run. Well done WAI!”
