This online engineering PDH course contains a series of operating requirements pertaining to routine operation, management and environmental monitoring at municipal solid waste landfill (MSWLF) units. The operating requirements pertain to new MSWLF units, existing MSWLF units, and lateral expansions of existing MSWLF units.
EPA has developed these operating requirements to assist owners/operators in achieving compliance with the criteria and ensure the safe daily operation and management at MSWLF units. These operating requirements apply to owners and/or operators of MSWLF units operating on or after October 9, 1993.
This 4 PDH online course is applicable to owners and/or operators of MSWLF units, as well as engineers, designers, managers, construction workers and any other personnel involved with the operation and maintenance of municipal solid waste landfills.
- Exclusion of hazardous waste
- Cover material application
- Disease vector control
- Explosive gases control
- Air monitoring
- Facility access
- Run-on/run-off control systems
- Surface water requirements
- Liquid restrictions
- Recordkeeping requirements
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 3, "Operating Criteria" of the EPA "Solid Waste Disposal Facility" Technical Manual.
This online engineering PDH course provides technical guidelines that will aid in the identification and selection of remedial actions at uncontrolled hazardous waste sites. It presents information on site-specific corrective measure alternatives including performance of preliminary assessments and site investigations to define the problem and determine its extent; remedial investigations and feasibility studies to develop options for remedial action; and selection of one or more cost-effective remedial actions in support of clean-up activities.
This 8 PDH online course is applicable to civil, environmental or geotechnical engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with hazardous and toxic waste remedial activities.
- Determination of the nature and extent of contamination
- Establishment of clean-up criteria
- Development and screening of remedial action alternatives
- Detailed analysis of remedial action alternatives
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 2 of the US Corps of Engineers Publication EM 1110-1-502, "Identification and Selection of Remedial Action/Corrective Measure Alternatives".
This online engineering PDH course presents information about the 2015 federal underground storage tank (UST) system requirements and regulations. UST and its underground piping must have release detection to comply with federal law. In addition to complying with federal law, some implementing agencies may have additional regulations which apply to the system.
Each of the sections herein focus on one release detection method for underground tanks and/or the requirements for underground piping. You will find answers in this booklet to basic questions about how release detection methods work and which methods are best for your UST site.
As of September 2015, over 528,000 UST releases were confirmed since the UST program was implemented. At sites without release detection, contamination can spread undetected, requiring difficult and costly clean-ups.
If you have effective release detection, you can respond quickly to signs of releases. You can minimize the extent of or eliminate potential for environmental damage and the threat to human health and safety. Early action also protects you from high costs that can result from cleaning up extensive releases and responding to third-party liability claims.
This 4 PDH online course is applicable to petroleum engineers, owners/operators, and personnel involved with the release detection of underground storage tanks.
- Learning the basic release detection requirements for underground storage tanks (USTs) and piping
- Understanding the different release detection methods for USTs and choosing the best option for a given application
- Familiarizing with the federal regulatory requirements for release detection
The first part of this course begins with an overview of the Laws and Rules governing the practice of engineering in the State of Florida (Chapter 1) including:
- Florida Statutes, Chapter 455, “Department of Business and Professional Regulation”
- Florida Statutes, Chapter 471, “Engineering”
- Florida Administrative Code, 61G15, F.A.C., “Florida Board of Professional Engineers”
Then, it continues to address the rules amended, adopted or otherwise repealed from 61G15, F.A.C. (Chapter 2) as well as the changes to Chapters 455, F.S. and 471, F.S. (Chapter 3), within the preceding biennium, as applicable.
The second part of this course presents engineering ethics and the principles of professional responsibility (Chapter 4). It further illustrates the application of Chapters 455 and 471, F.S. to a randomly selected set of ethical and disciplinary cases.
This 2 PDH online engineering course is applicable to Professional Engineers licensed in the State of Florida and who are required to demonstrate continuing professional competency in the Florida Laws, Rules and Ethics as a condition of license renewal. For each renewal period, every licensee must complete eighteen (18) professional development hours as follows:
- One hour must relate to this chapter and the rules adopted under this chapter;
- One hour must relate to professional ethics;
- Four hours must relate to the licensee’s area of practice; and
- The remaining hours may relate to any topic pertinent to the practice of engineering.
This PE continuing education engineering course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the different Florida laws and rules regulating the practice of engineering in the State of Florida and their application to Professional Engineers
- Learning the rules adopted, amended or repealed from 61G15 within the preceding biennium
- Learning the changes made to Chapters 455, F.S. and 471, F.S. within the preceding biennium
- Understanding ethical behavior and the principles of professional responsibility in the field of engineering
- Understanding the general application of Chapters 455 and 471, F.S. to various ethical and disciplinary cases of Professional Engineers
