COURSE TITLE: Traffic Bottlenecks Operational Improvements
COURSE NO: C06-018
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Traffic Bottlenecks Operational Improvements
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes bottlenecks and explores near-term operational and low-cost construction opportunities to correct them.

 

Delays due to traffic congestion seem like an unavoidable, frustrating fact of life. Or are they—unavoidable, that is? This course focuses on traffic congestion caused by bottlenecks—which are specific locations on the highway system where the physical layout of the roadway routinely cannot process the traffic that wants to use it and results in localized, recurring congestion.

 

By focusing on relieving localized, recurring congestion at bottlenecks, this primer can help agencies identify the right fix for a particular bottleneck. What’s more, the right fix for a localized, recurring bottleneck is usually spot-specific, more effective, less expensive, and faster to implement than building a new facility.

 

This 6 PDH online course is applicable to traffic engineers and planners, conceptual and detail designers, and other technical professionals who are interested in gaining a better understanding in traffic bottlenecks operational improvements.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding bottlenecks and congestion
  • Learning about the different strategies of resolving congestion
  • Knowing how to structure a localized bottleneck program
  • Identifying, assessing and addressing bottlenecks
  • Incorporating quick-fix bottleneck solutions into the Congestion Initiative
  • Understanding how agencies are dealing with bottlenecks (case studies)
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the Federal Highway Administration Publication FHWA-HOP-18-013, "Recurring Traffic Bottlenecks: A Primer, Focus on Low-Cost Operational Improvements".

COURSE TITLE: Impact of Exempt Vehicles on HOV Lanes
COURSE NO: C05-012
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Impact of Exempt Vehicles on HOV Lanes
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents information on defining high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane capacity, options for using available HOV lane capacity, and analyzing HOV exemption policies. It examines the potential impact of certain exempt vehicles on the operation of high-occupancy vehicles (HOV) facilities. The possible exempt vehicles examined in this course include environmentally friendly vehicles, and law enforcement, emergency services, and designated public transportation vehicles. It also presents the experience with the use of HOV lanes by these types of exempt vehicles. Finally, it examines the potential issues and approaches for allowing exempt vehicles to use HOV lanes.

 

Traffic congestion continues to be a major issue in metropolitan areas throughout the country. The agencies responsible for the surface transportation system in these regions use a variety of approaches and techniques to address concerns relating to traffic congestion, mobility, and air quality. The use of HOV facilities represents one approach in use or being considered in many urban areas.

 

This 5 PDH online course is applicable to traffic engineers, transportation planners, conceptual and detail designers, and other technical professionals who will be considering HOV exemption policies as well as monitoring and evaluating the use of HOV lanes by exempt vehicles.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Learning about HOV facilities and HOV lane capacities
  • Evaluating options for using HOV lane capacities
  • Analyzing HOV exemption policies on traffic flow
  • Considering HOV exemption for environmentally friendly vehicles
  • Considering HOV exemptions for law enforcement vehicles
  • Considering HOV exemptions for law public transportation vehicles

COURSE TITLE: Code of Ethics for Engineers
COURSE NO: LE1-001
Code of Ethics for Engineers
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course introduces engineers to the National Society of Professional Engineers Code of Ethics. The Code provides ethical guidance to engineers in their various and often simultaneously held roles as 1) guardians of public health, safety, and welfare 2) employees, 3) employers, and 4) providers of technical service to clients.

 

Engineers practicing their profession encounter not only technical issues but also ethical issues. Sometimes the latter issues are easy to resolve: applying everyday, common-sense notions of honesty, openness, responsibility, and lawfulness is sufficient to guide the engineer to the appropriate decision. At other times, however, matters are more complicated. In particular, knowing what to do when two or more duties or obligations conflict can be difficult. For example, an engineer's duty to his client or employer may conflict with the engineer's duty to the general public. Codes of ethics have been formulated to help engineers address these conflicts.

 

This 1 PDH online course is intended for all engineers who are interested in gaining a better understanding about how to protect and respect their engineering profession in the utmost manner.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Learning the six Fundamental Canons of the Code
  • Learning the five Rules of Practice
  • Learning the nine Professional Obligations
