COURSE TITLE: Transportation Management Plans for Work Zones
COURSE NO: C07-001
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Transportation Management Plans for Work Zones
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course sets forth some basic guiding principles and describes a general approach for developing, implementing, and assessing TMPs. This course is a compendium of guidance material, available resources, and suggested practices to help develop, implement, and assess transportation management plans (TMP) for work zones.

 

Work zone objectives, needs, and issues vary from project to project. Therefore, it is ultimately up to the professional to establish procedures and implement TMPs that best serve the safety and mobility needs of the traveling public, highway workers, businesses, and community.

 

This 7 PDH online course is applicable to transportation planners, traffic engineers, agency personnel as well as design and construction personnel involved with the development, review, approval, implementation, and assessment of TMPs.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding the purpose of transportation management plans
  • Learning the process for TMP development, implementation and assessment
  • Knowledge of potential TMP components
  • Implementing work zone impacts management strategies
  • Familiarizing with current TMP use, examples and practices
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the Federal Highway Administration Publication FHWA-HOP-05-066, "Developing and Implementing Transportation Plans for Work Zones".

COURSE TITLE: Traffic Control Concepts for Urban and Suburban Streets
COURSE NO: C07-004
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Traffic Control Concepts for Urban and Suburban Streets
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course discusses traffic control concepts for urban and suburban streets. In planning and designing a traffic signal control system, one must first understand the applicable operational concepts related to signalized intersection control and signal-related special control. A number of commonly used proprietary traffic systems and simulations are discussed in this chapter. These discussions provide illustrations of the technology.

 

This 7 PDH online course is applicable to transportation planners, traffic engineers, agency personnel as well as design and construction personnel involved with the development, review, approval, implementation, and assessment of traffic control planning, designs and implementation.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding the various control variables
  • Learning the sampling, filtering and smoothing techniques
  • Knowledge of traffic signal timing parameters and signal phasing
  • Dealing with isolated intersections
  • Understanding arterial and network control and other special controls
  • Understanding the benefits and measures of effectiveness
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 3, "Traffic Control Concepts - Urban and Suburban Streets" of the Federal Highway Administration Publication, FHWA-HOP-06-006, "Traffic Control Systems Handbook".

COURSE TITLE: Roundabout Planning and Operation
COURSE NO: C05-011
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Roundabout Planning and Operation
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents the factors that lead up to the decision to construct a roundabout with an approximate configuration at a specific location, preceding the detailed analysis and design of a roundabout. By confirming that there is good reason to believe that roundabout construction is feasible and that a roundabout offers a sensible method of accommodating the traffic demand, these planning activities make unnecessary the expenditure of effort required subsequently.

 

This course also presents methods for analyzing the operation of an existing or planned roundabout. These methods allow a transportation analyst to assess the operational performance of a facility, given information about the usage of the facility and its geometric design elements. An operational analysis produces two kinds of estimates: (1) the capacity of a facility, i.e., the ability of the facility to accommodate various streams of users, and (2) the level of performance, often measured in terms of one or more measures of effectiveness, such as delay and queues.

 

This 5 PDH online course is applicable to traffic engineers, transportation planners, conceptual and detailed designers, and other technical professionals who are involved in the planning and operation of roundabouts.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Considering the various constraints for constructing a roundabout
  • Determining a preliminary lane configuration and selecting a roundabout category based on capacity requirements
  • Performing the analysis appropriate to the roundabout selection category
  • Determining the space requirements and feasibility
  • Understanding the traffic operations at roundabouts
  • Obtaining data required to evaluate the performance of a roundabout
  • Estimating the capacity of the various roundabout configurations
  • Applying measures of effectiveness determine the performance of a roundabout and estimating these measures
  • Familiarizing with the different computer software packages available to implement the capacity and performance analysis procedures
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 4, "Planning" and Chapter 5, "Operation", of the Federal Highway Administration Publication FHWA-RD-00-067, "Understanding Roundabouts".

COURSE TITLE: Ethical Issue: Deciding if Something is a Gift or a Bribe
COURSE NO: LE1-007
Ethical Issue: Deciding if Something is a Gift or a Bribe
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course will establish, through the presentation of many examples, the principles of distinguishing between a gift and a bribe.

 

The federal government has formulated detailed rules covering gifts given to executive-branch employees in many situations. The rules are published in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and are illustrated through many examples. Even though the examples are intended for government employees (many of whom are engineers), they also apply to private-sector engineers in similar situations. This course presents selected CFR examples that furnish guidance on the ethics of gift giving in situations that are especially relevant to engineers.

 

This 1 PDH online course is intended for engineers seeking guidance on distinguishing between ethical gift-giving and bribery.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Familiarizing with definitions of a bribe and a gift
  • Knowing the bribe status of a gift based on a personal relationship
  • Understanding the conditions under which gifts to spouses are acceptable
  • Knowing the need to avoid even the appearance of a gift being a bribe
  • Recognizing when gifts involving free attendance at meetings and conferences are acceptable
  • Understanding the importance of the cumulative effect of receiving even small gifts on a periodic basis
  • Learning the importance of gifts received when on assignment rather than outside of work
