COURSE TITLE: Disposal Technologies for Hazardous and Toxic Waste
COURSE NO: C02-006
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Disposal Technologies for Hazardous and Toxic Waste
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance for the design of disposal systems. A disposal system is a properly engineered facility used for ultimate disposal of hazardous waste into or on land or water. Disposal systems have general applicability to all types of waste streams.

 

The different disposal techniques are collectively capable of handling wastes in solid, semisolid, and liquid forms. As many disposal systems have shown migration or dispersion of the contaminants to the surrounding environment, there is usually strong public resistance to siting a solid or hazardous waste disposal facility.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to civil and environmental engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with hazardous and toxic waste treatment and disposal activities.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Onsite disposal techniques
  • Offsite disposal techniques
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 5 of the US Corps of Engineers Publication EM 1110-1-502, "Disposal Technologies".

COURSE TITLE: Release Detection for Underground Storage Tanks and Piping
COURSE NO: C04-050
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Release Detection for Underground Storage Tanks and Piping
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents information about the 2015 federal underground storage tank (UST) system requirements and regulations. UST and its underground piping must have release detection to comply with federal law. In addition to complying with federal law, some implementing agencies may have additional regulations which apply to the system.

 

Each of the sections herein focus on one release detection method for underground tanks and/or the requirements for underground piping. You will find answers in this booklet to basic questions about how release detection methods work and which methods are best for your UST site.

 

As of September 2015, over 528,000 UST releases were confirmed since the UST program was implemented. At sites without release detection, contamination can spread undetected, requiring difficult and costly clean-ups. 

 

If you have effective release detection, you can respond quickly to signs of releases. You can minimize the extent of or eliminate potential for environmental damage and the threat to human health and safety. Early action also protects you from high costs that can result from cleaning up extensive releases and responding to third-party liability claims. 

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to petroleum engineers, owners/operators, and personnel involved with the release detection of underground storage tanks.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Learning the basic release detection requirements for underground storage tanks (USTs) and piping
  • Understanding the different release detection methods for USTs and choosing the best option for a given application
  • Familiarizing with the federal regulatory requirements for release detection
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the document “Release Detection for Underground Storage Tanks and Piping: Straight Talk on Tanks” prepared by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, EPA 510-K-16-003.

Course Quiz
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty five (25) questions to earn 4 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on the document “Release Detection for Underground Storage Tanks and Piping: Straight Talk on Tanks”.
The minimum passing score is 70%. There is no time limit on the quiz, and you can take it multiple times until you pass at no additional cost.

COURSE TITLE: Revitalizing Contaminated Lands: Addressing Liability Concerns
COURSE NO: C03-061
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Revitalizing Contaminated Lands: Addressing Liability Concerns
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course discusses the statutory, policy, guidance, and regulatory provisions that may be helpful to parties looking to manage environmental clean-up liability risks associated with the revitalization of contaminated sites. It is designed for use by parties involved in the assessment, clean-up, and revitalization of sites, and provides a basic description of the tools that may be available to address liability concerns.

 

Revitalizing contaminated lands means providing reuse opportunities of abandoned properties to communities and land owners by cleanup enforcement program. The main objective of the cleanup enforcement program is to ensure prompt site cleanup and the participation of liable parties in performing and paying for cleanups in a manner that ensures protection of human health and the environment.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable environmental, civil, and industrial engineers as well as others interested in learning more about revitalizing contaminated lands.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Learning the enforcement tools to help promote the clean-up and revitalization of contaminated sites
  • Understanding the policies available to help promote cleanup and revitalization of contaminated sites
  • Knowing how to manage the environmental cleanup liability risks associated with the revitalization of contaminated sites for parties
  • Familiarizing with the available tools to address liability concerns
