General Joe Ramirez
Lessons from a Leadership Warrior: A Keynote Presentation by General (Ret.) Joe Ramirez (VOD)
We offer four learning formats to better suit your needs
COURSE FOR CREDIT
These courses provide those seeking to earn credits/points towards maintaining a professional credential. Each course features video content that is divided up by several quiz questions. After you complete the video and quizzes, you are presented with a final exam that you must pass in order to receive your certificate of completion and credential credit.

Who creates the content in iPi online?
Utility Business Media, the publisher of Incident Prevention Magazine and hosts of the iP Utility Safety Conference recruits leading safety minds in the utility industry to create and present our content. iPi then takes that content and creates learner-friendly formats for you to purchase.
How can I purchase iPi Online content?
There are two ways you can purchase content. One, you can buy any individual item in our catalog. Once purchase, you have unlimited access to that course until it is archived. (A course is only archived if the information in it becomes obsolete due to changes in rules, regulations or procedures).
Two, you can purchase an annual subscription plan that gives you unlimited access to all of the content in our catalog.
After I purchase an item, how much time do I have to watch it?
You have unlimited access to the course with no expiration date. The only exception to this is if we must archive an item due to the information delivered in it being outdated by the implementation of new industry rules and regulations. In other words, if the content in the course is no longer accurate or correct, we will remove it from our catalog.
