Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course begins with a thorough explanation of the business (non-regulatory) reasons that every business can benefit from a climate change program and how to institute such a program.  Then it covers how to estimate GHG emissions based on globally accepted standards. It also covers how to estimate GHG emissions from the processes you control and how to estimate them from other processes related to your product that your company may not have direct control over ("carbon footprint").


This course also describes how to conduct a life cycle analysis to enable your company to focus intelligently on effective GHG emission reduction strategies. Then, it discusses GHG emission reduction opportunities, including the basics of conducting an energy audit or assessment.  Finally, it provides advice on how to manage your GHG emissions and reductions, set achievable goals, and to report successes.


As a result, there is growing pressure for companies and people to reduce GHG emissions with the hope of reversing climate change and its effects in the future. The Kyoto Protocol and other initiatives are introducing incentives for businesses to reduce GHG emissions. Climate change is ultimately a technical issue and must be addressed by different engineers (mechanical, environmental, chemical) applying their specialty knowledge to reduce GHG emissions.


This 2 PDH online course is intended for environmental engineers, mechanical engineers, HVAC equipment specialists, and construction workers who are interested in gaining a better understanding about implementing a climate change program.
