COURSE TITLE: Slope Stability
COURSE NO: G04-001
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Slope Stability
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance for analyzing the static stability of slopes of earth and rock-fill dams, slopes of other types of embankments, excavated slopes, and natural slopes in soil and soft rock.

 

Slope stability criteria are presented for strength tests, analysis conditions, and factors of safety. The criteria are intended to be used with methods of stability analysis that satisfy all conditions of equilibrium. Methods that do not satisfy all conditions of equilibrium may involve significant inaccuracies and should be used only under the restricted conditions described herein.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to geotechnical and structural engineers, as well as design and construction personnel working on projects involving slope stability analysis.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Aspects applicable to all load conditions
  • Analyses of stability during and at the end of construction
  • Analyses of steady-state seepage conditions
  • Analyses of sudden drawdown stability
  • Analysis of stability during earthquakes
  • Design criteria for existing and new embankments
  • Design criteria of other slopes
  • Presentation of various types of analysis and results
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapters 1 through 4 of the US Corps of Engineers Publication EM 1110-2-1902, "Slope Stability".

COURSE TITLE: Trenching and Excavation Safety
COURSE NO: C02-072
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Trenching and Excavation Safety
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on the requirements for excavation and trenching operations. This course describes safe work practices that can protect workers from cave-ins and other hazards.

 

Trenching and excavation work presents serious hazards to all workers involved. Cave-ins pose the greatest risk and are more likely than some other excavation-related incidents to result in worker fatalities. One cubic yard of soil can weigh as much as a car. An unprotected trench can be an early grave. Employers must ensure that workers enter trenches only after adequate protections are in place to address cave-in hazards.  Other potential hazards associated with trenching work include falling loads, hazardous atmospheres and hazards from mobile equipment. Following the requirements of OSHA Excavation standards will prevent or greatly reduce the risk of cave-ins and other excavation-related incidents.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for employers/business owners, engineers, managers, construction workers and any other personnel working on construction projects involving trenching and excavation safety.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding the different risks and dangers of trenching and excavation operations
  • Understanding the OSHA Excavation standards and how they protect workers
  • Pre-planning excavation work
  • Learning the basics of protective systems
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the document “Trenching and Excavation Safety” prepared by the U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration OSHA 2226-10R 2015.

COURSE TITLE: Dam Safety Risk Management
COURSE NO: C03-060
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Dam Safety Risk Management
Course Highlights

This engineering online PDH covers the basic guidelines and principles of dam risk management.

 

Risk management is the overarching activity when risk is used to inform dam safety decision making and builds on risk analysis and risk assessment phases. It encompasses activities related to making risk-informed decisions, prioritizing evaluations of risk, prioritizing risk reduction activities, and making program decisions associated with managing a portfolio of facilities. Risk management includes evaluating the environmental, social, cultural, ethical, political, and legal considerations during all parts of the process.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable to geotechnical and civil engineers, as well as other technical personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding of dam risk management in order to make risk-informed decisions.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Learning about the dam safety risk management framework for decision making
  • Understanding the aspects and components of Risk Analysis (i.e. types, estimation & results)
  • Understanding the aspects and components of Risk Assessment (i.e. process, safety decision making approach & tolerable risk)
  • Understanding the aspects and components of Risk Management (i.e. objectives, urgency of action & prioritization)
  • Familiarization with the aspects and components of Risk Communication and public awareness
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review "Federal Guidelines for Dam Safety Risk Management" by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), publication FEMA P-1025, dated January 2015.
