COURSE TITLE: Heating and Cooling System Upgrades
COURSE NO: M03-022
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Heating and Cooling System Upgrades
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course identifies the opportunities for improving the performance of the heating and cooling system based on the type of system that is in place.

 

Heating and cooling systems are the largest single consumers of energy in buildings. These systems condition the air within a building so that occupants are comfortable. Heating and cooling systems consist mainly of chillers, boilers, cooling towers, and pumps. There are central heating and cooling systems, and unitary systems that combine heating and cooling. Opportunities exist for improvement to both central and unitary systems.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable to engineers, contractors, designers and other technical professionals who are involved in the retrofit of existing heating and cooling systems.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the best opportunities available for upgrading central cooling systems including chillers, cooling towers, water side economizers and pumps
  • Understanding the best opportunities available for upgrading central heating systems including boilers and furnaces
  • Understanding the best opportunities available for unitary systems including packaged or rooftop units, split system packaged units, air source heat pumps and water loop heat pump systems
  • Learning about new strategies aimed at saving energy such as geothermal heat pumps, district cooling and heating, radiant heating and cooling, cool storage, high temperature difference distribution, evaporative cooling, and non-electric cooling
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review "Heating and Cooling System Upgrades" of the Energy Star Building Manual. (Energy Star is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy).

COURSE TITLE: Wind Turbine Technology
COURSE NO: R04-009
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Wind Turbine Technology
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides a brief overview of wind turbine technology and its associated components, discusses the financial considerations and the technological improvements that would be required to increase the reliance on wind energy in the future.   

 

Current turbine technology has enabled wind energy to become a viable power source in today’s energy market. Advancements in turbine technology that have the potential to increase wind energy’s presence are currently being explored through areas of study including reducing capital costs, increasing capacity factors, and mitigating risk through enhanced system reliability.

 

This 4 PDH online course is intended for renewable, sustainability, mechanical, electrical, and industrial engineers, as well as other technical personnel who are interested in gaining a basic understanding of wind turbine technology.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Familiarizing with the basic configuration of the modern wind turbine
  • Knowing the options in improving wind turbine technology
  • Understanding the technical and financial risks involved in wind technology
  • Familiarizing with offshore wind technology
  • Learning about distributed wind technology (DWT) and their applications

COURSE TITLE: Advancing Sustainable Materials Management
COURSE NO: C01-021
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Advancing Sustainable Materials Management
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents the facts and statistics about the generation and disposition of municipal solid waste (MSW) over time in the United States. It examines the disposing of waste in landfills, recycling, composting, and combustion with energy recovery.

 

Approximately 262 million tons of MSW was generated in the United States in 2015. Understanding how waste is generated and disposed of is important for managing scarce materials.

 

This report analyzes MSW trends in generation and management, materials and products, and economic indicators affecting MSW. It also includes a section on the generation of construction and demolition (C&D) debris, which is not a part of MSW, but comprises a significant portion of the non-hazardous solid waste stream.

 

This 1 PDH online course is applicable to civil, environmental and sustainability engineers and other technical personnel who are interested in gaining a basic understanding of waste management on the individual and household level.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Knowing where MSW comes from and how it is disposed of
  • Understanding how to manage materials in order to maximize economic efficiency
  • Learning when recycling, composting, and combusting with energy recovery should be used
  • Familiarizing with the Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) process
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review "Advancing Sustainable Materials Management" by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), publication EPA530-F-18-004, dated July 2018.
