COURSE TITLE: Landscaping for Water Efficiency
COURSE NO: C01-006
COURSE PROVIDER: Cory Horton
Landscaping for Water Efficiency
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course introduces the reader to the essential methods for designing water efficient landscaping.


Providing an adequate supply of fresh water to our ever growing population is reaching a critical stage.  The World Bank reports that water shortages threaten the health and economy in 80 countries.  With dwindling supplies, the cost of this precious resource is bound to increase.  In response to the declining supply of fresh water, many conservation efforts have been focused within homes and businesses.  Efficiently managing our outdoor use of water can also yield a significant savings to our net water budget.

 

Designing water-wise landscapes can result in many benefits.  The conservation of our vital water supply is the most obvious.  Water saving landscapes can also decrease energy use, water bills, erosion, and maintenance costs. Some up front thoughts built into the design of landscaping features can save thousands of gallons of water in the long run.  Knowing the key design and maintenance considerations for low water use landscaping is essential for the successful conservation of our most precious resource.

 

This 1 PDH online course is intended for homeowners, practicing engineers, contractors, developers, regulators, and all other personnel involved with the design, installation, and maintenance of landscaped areas.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding why one should be concerned about the water efficiency of landscaping
  • Understanding the benefits of water efficient landscapes
  • Learning about landscaping planning and design considerations for water efficiency

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
