This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of the Americans with Disabilities Act as it applies to facility design.

 

For individuals with disabilities, the Americans with Disabilities Act gives civil rights protections similar to those provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion. It guarantees equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, state and local government services, and telecommunications. 

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for all engineers involved in the design of facilities accessible to the public and regulated by the ADA.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Familiarizing with the types of facilities covered
  • Understanding "public accommodation"
  • Learning about the various requirements for accessible facilities
  • Understanding when a "direct threat" to health or safety is present
  • Understanding "readily achievable" barrier removal for existing facilities
  • Familiarizing with the  legal enforcement mechanisms available
  • Learning about available tax credits and deductions for employers
Course Document

COURSE TITLE: Performance-Based Design
COURSE NO: A01-001
COURSE PROVIDER: John Galinski, P.E.
Performance-Based Design
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of performance-based design process.  Performance-based design is the process or methodology used by design professionals to create buildings that protect functionality and the continued availability of services. Building performance is an indicator of how well a structure supports the defined needs of its users. Although this material is written for schools, it is applicable to all buildings.

 

This 1 PDH online course is applicable to structural engineers, design professionals, construction contractors, building owners and other technical personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding of performance-based design.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding prescriptive vs. performance-based design
  • Understanding the performance-based design process
  • Understanding acceptable risk and performance levels
  • Learning about considerations for achieving continuous operation performance level
  • Understanding performance-based flood design, high-wind design and seismic design
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, the student will review Chapter 2 of the FEMA publication "Design Guide for Improving School Safety in Earthquakes, Floods, and High Winds", FEMA P-424, December 2010.

COURSE TITLE: The MEP Design of Building Services
COURSE NO: M06-034
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
The MEP Design of Building Services
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides fundamental knowledge and understanding of Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) systems in buildings.  

 

People in urban settings spend between 80 and 90% of their time in indoor spaces both during work and during leisure time. The aesthetics, efficiency, economy, comfort, safety and of modern buildings require close collaboration across multiple disciplines.

 

With the emerging trend of high-rise buildings and emphasis on sustainability, the MEP systems are becoming increasingly complex and occupying larger portions of building project work. The MEP design no more relates only to the visible elements such as lights, radiators, convectors, registers, outlet grilles, or ducts - which are the end nodes of the systems - but also to the infrastructure that supplies those elements. 

 

Although the primary responsibility of delivering high quality building projects rests with the lead architect, the knowledge and expertise of the MEP engineers play a very important role in supporting the architect’s vision.

 

This 6 PDH online course is intended primarily for mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineers as well as architects involved in the design and installation of MEP systems for buildings.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding the architectural aspects of modern energy efficient buildings
  • Acquiring fundamental knowledge of MEP systems including:
  • HVAC Systems: DX systems, Chilled water systems, etc.
  • Fire protection systems: Water supply, standpipe, hydrants, automatic sprinklers, etc.
  • Fire alarm systems, smoke detection, annunciation, addressable devices, etc.
  • Potable water supply and distribution, waste water and storm water
  • Power supply and distribution: busway, cable duct, raceways, etc.
  • Lighting: Interior, exterior, and emergency lighting
  • Control systems, security systems (CCTV, audio/video), data networks etc.
  • Vertical transportation: traction and hydraulic elevators
  • Noise and acoustics for buildings

VA Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course is an overview of the VA's requirements related to the use of BIM on VA projects.

 

In today's complex building designs there is a movement to use BIM (Building Information Modeling) as a tool for both design and construction.  In addition, BIM is used in facility management.  The VA's Office of Construction and Facilities Management (CFM) has determined that Building Information Modeling (BIM) represents both an enhanced technology and a process change for the architecture-engineering-construction-facilities management industry. VA is committed to moving both the organization and its service providers to BIM as effectively and efficiently as possible, and to integrating BIM process requirements and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) methodologies into its delivery requirements.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable to all engineers, architects, design and construction personnel, technical staff and facility personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding of BIM technology.
