COURSE TITLE: Hazardous Waste Identification
COURSE NO: C04-051
Hazardous Waste Identification
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course introduces the hazardous waste identification process, describes how to determine if a waste is a solid waste, and provides the regulatory definition for hazardous waste. It also discusses those wastes specifically excluded from Subtitle C regulation and those wastes exempted when recycled.

 

Proper hazardous waste identification is essential to the success of the RCRA program. This identification process can be a very complex task. Therefore, it is best to approach the issue by asking a series of questions in a step-wise manner. If facility owners and operators answer the following questions, they can determine if they are producing a hazardous waste:

 

  • Is the material in question a solid waste?
  • Is the material excluded from the definition of solid waste or hazardous waste?
  • Is the waste a listed or characteristic Hazardous waste?
  • Is the waste delisted?

 

This 4 PDH online course is intended primarily for environmental, civil, and chemical engineers  and other technical staff who are interested in determining whether a given waste is a RCRA hazardous waste.

Learning Objectives

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

 

  • Understanding the fundamentals of the hazardous waste identification process
  • Learning the definition of the term "solid waste" as used by RCRA
  • Learning the definition of hazardous waste
  • Identifying listed hazardous wastes
  • Identifying characteristic hazardous wastes
  • Interpreting the 'mixture' and 'derived-from' rules
  • Interpreting of the 'contained-in' policy
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled, " Hazardous Waste Identification ".  It is Chapter III, Part 2 (Hazardous Waste Identification), from the 2014 edition of the USEPA RCRA Orientation Manual.

COURSE TITLE: Wastewater Treatment System Selection
COURSE NO: C02-009
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Wastewater Treatment System Selection
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on the selection process of the subsurface wastewater infiltration system. It describes various steps involved in the selection process including understanding of the prevailing design conditions, matching these conditions to system performance, establishing design boundaries and boundary loadings, evaluating the receiving environment and mapping out the site.

 

Selecting the appropriate system type, size, and location at the site depends on the wastewater flow and composition information, site- and landscape-level assessments, performance requirements, and the array of available technology options. Key to selecting, sizing, and siting the system are identifying the desired level of performance and ensuring that the effluent quality at the performance boundaries meets the expected performance requirements.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to civil, and environmental engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the planning, selection and design of subsurface wastewater infiltration systems.

Learning Objectives

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