Courses

We are very excited about this year's KSN Conference which will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Wichita. Conference sessions will focus on our theme "Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child"

Many of you remarked how you enjoyed last year's format for the conference. We kept the program similar based upon your feedback. We will have three very special keynote speakers and more than 29 unique sessions for you to attend. Because many of you said it was hard to get to every session, we are also repeating several of the sessions this year.

Cancellation Policy
All cancellations must be made in writing. A 15% administrative fee will be assessed on all cancellations (this includes purchase orders). There will be no refunds after July 5.

Course Description:The content of this course is centered around the stress analysis of laminated composites. An in-depth treatment of the basic concepts of solid mechanics, constitutive behavior of orthotropic material and its simplification for plane stress analysis, micromechanics for strength and stiffness estimations, laminate analysis methods and composite characterization is presented in this course. The topics dwell into the underlying mechanics rather than a simple overview. Numerical examples, comparison with real test data, and self-evaluation quizzes are presented throughout the course.
Intended Audience: This course is intended for practicing engineers with a basic knowledge of composite materials and mechanics of materials (or strength of materials). The course provides an overview of topics related to micromechanics, laminate analysis, mechanical and cure characterization. For additional information and in-depth treatment of the course topics, you are recommended to consult the cited references or enroll in a formal course offered by the university.
Course Delivery Method: Online
Course Length: Students have 60 days to complete the online course.
Course Start Dates: ongoing, access is granted once registration and payment is received.

This course will provide students with a technical knowledge of composite manufacturing to a level that allows them to better and more proactively identify deficiencies on the factory floor that have safety implications. This course was developed by Wichita State University in collaboration with key industry experts and the Federal Aviation Administration. Students will study advanced topics during an on-line, interactive learning experience via Blackboard. Teaching methodology includes online discussions facilitated by subject matter experts, relevant documentation, and audio/visual aids. Depending on prior knowledge and experience, students will spend approximately eight hours per week reviewing materials, participating, in online discussions, and testing their knowledge. Depending on the students skill set and back ground the time investment may fluctuate a bit. The course will conclude with a 2-day hands-on laboratory.
This course covers the essential topics pertaining to composites engineering and the certification process. Its contents provide students with an awareness of the composites engineering process framework through course materials and practical applications through online discussions. Topics include engineering, manufacturing, maintenance, and certification of composite materials associated with civil aircraft structures. The course content is in accordance with FAA AC 20-107B (Composite Aircraft Structure).

This is a workshop designed to introduce students and professionals in the field to Medicaid in Kansas. Specific programs will be defined and eligibility criteria presented. Current programs offering services to persons with physical disabilities, intellectual and developmental disabilities, autism, etc. will be discussed. Participants will be introduced to tools to prepare them in roles where they may assist consumers with Medicaid application completion, grievance/appeal processes as well as accessing services for eligible clients. Other areas of study include a comparison of Medicare and Medicaid, an overview of client money obligations, value-added service options and nursing home care/alternatives.
