COURSE TITLE: Disposal Technologies for Hazardous and Toxic Waste
COURSE NO: C02-006
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Disposal Technologies for Hazardous and Toxic Waste
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance for the design of disposal systems. A disposal system is a properly engineered facility used for ultimate disposal of hazardous waste into or on land or water. Disposal systems have general applicability to all types of waste streams.

 

The different disposal techniques are collectively capable of handling wastes in solid, semisolid, and liquid forms. As many disposal systems have shown migration or dispersion of the contaminants to the surrounding environment, there is usually strong public resistance to siting a solid or hazardous waste disposal facility.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to civil and environmental engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with hazardous and toxic waste treatment and disposal activities.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Onsite disposal techniques
  • Offsite disposal techniques
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 5 of the US Corps of Engineers Publication EM 1110-1-502, "Disposal Technologies".

COURSE TITLE: Mold Remediation in Schools and Commercial Buildings
COURSE NO: C04-049
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Mold Remediation in Schools and Commercial Buildings
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents guidelines for the remediation/clean-up of mold and moisture problems in schools and commercial buildings. These guidelines include measures designed to protect the health of building occupants and remediators. Individuals with little or no experience with mold remediation should be able to use this course to help them make a reasonable judgement as to whether the situation can be handled in-house. It will also help those in charge of maintenance to evaluate an in-house remediation plan submitted by an outside contractor.

 

Molds can be found almost anywhere. They can grow on virtually any organic substance if moisture and oxygen are present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, foods, and insulation. When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. It is impossible to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment. However, mold growth can be controlled indoors by controlling moisture indoors. 

 

When mold growth occurs in buildings, adverse health problems may be reported by some building occupants, particularly those with allergies or respiratory problems. Remediators should avoid exposing themselves and others to mold-laden dusts as they conduct their cleanup activities. Caution should be used to prevent mold and mold spores from being dispersed throughout the air where they can be inhaled by building occupants.

 

This 4 PDH online course is intended to environmental and facility engineers, building managers, custodians, and others who are involved in the development and implementation of mold prevention and remediation plans.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding mold preventative measures
  • Investigating, evaluating, and remediating moisture and mold problems
  • The importance of Personal Protective Equipment
  • Developing a Mold Remediation Plan
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the document “Mold Remediation in Schools and Commercial Buildings” prepared by the Indoor Environments Division (IED) of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, EPA 402-K-01-001.

COURSE TITLE: Release Detection for Underground Storage Tanks and Piping
COURSE NO: C04-050
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Release Detection for Underground Storage Tanks and Piping
Course Highlights

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 Objectives

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

  • 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
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the document “Release Detection for Underground Storage Tanks and Piping: Straight Talk on Tanks” prepared by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, EPA 510-K-16-003.

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
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled, “Ethical Issue: Deciding if Something is a Gift or a Bribe,” by Mark P. Rossow.
