Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy: Transportation Control Measures
This online engineering PDH course describes the process of developing and implementing transportation control measures, using real-world examples. It includes descriptions of real-life success stories of communities using TCMs.
Transportation control measures (TCMs) are strategies that reduce transportation-related air pollution, greenhouse-gas emissions (GHG), and fuel use by reducing vehicle miles traveled and improving roadway operations. For example, emissions from individual vehicle use can be reduced by offering less polluting alternatives, such as public transit, and strategies that decrease the need for vehicle trips, such as telecommuting. TCMs may also focus on making travel more efficient by improving the management of the transportation system.
This 3 PDH online course is intended for civil, electrical, environmental, mechanical, and municipal engineers concerned with reducing the environmental impact of their local government through the introduction of sustainable technologies.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Promoting public transportation through convenience
- Encouraging cycling and walking
- Expanding commuter choices
- Instituting flextime
- Improving transportation infrastructure
- Designing intelligent transportation systems
- Introducing pay-as-you-drive insurance
- Implementing strategies for effective program
- Understanding costs and funding opportunities
- Learning with case studies
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled, “Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy: Transportation Control Measures” which is based on the Environmental Protection Agency document, “Transportation Control Measures, A Guide to Developing and Implementing Greenhouse Gas Reduction Programs”, EPA-430-R-09-040, March 2011, from the EPA’s Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy Series.
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty (20) questions to earn 3 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on this EPA publication.
Upon successful completion of the quiz, print your Certificate of Completion instantly. (Note: if you are paying by check or money order, you will be able to print it after we receive your payment.)
