Maryland Geotechnical and Ethics 16 PDH Discount Package 1
Courses in this Package
Slope Stability (G04-001)
Bearing Capacity of Soils (G10-002)
Engineering Ethics for Maryland Professional Engineers (MD2-005)
This online engineering PDH course provides guidance for analyzing the static stability of slopes of earth and rock-fill dams, slopes of other types of embankments, excavated slopes, and natural slopes in soil and soft rock.
Slope stability criteria are presented for strength tests, analysis conditions, and factors of safety. The criteria are intended to be used with methods of stability analysis that satisfy all conditions of equilibrium. Methods that do not satisfy all conditions of equilibrium may involve significant inaccuracies and should be used only under the restricted conditions described herein.
This 4 PDH online course is applicable to geotechnical and structural engineers, as well as design and construction personnel working on projects involving slope stability analysis.
- Aspects applicable to all load conditions
- Analyses of stability during and at the end of construction
- Analyses of steady-state seepage conditions
- Analyses of sudden drawdown stability
- Analysis of stability during earthquakes
- Design criteria for existing and new embankments
- Design criteria of other slopes
- Presentation of various types of analysis and results
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapters 1 through 4 of the US Corps of Engineers Publication EM 1110-2-1902, "Slope Stability".
This online engineering PDH course presents the guidelines for calculation of the bearing capacity of soil under shallow and deep foundations supporting various types of structures such as buildings and houses, towers and storage tanks, fills, embankments and dams. These guidelines may be helpful in determining soils that will lead to bearing capacity failure or excessive settlements for given foundations and loads.
Bearing capacity is the ability of soil to safely carry the pressure placed on the soil from any engineered structure without undergoing a shear failure with accompanying large settlements. Applying a bearing pressure which is safe with respect to failure does not ensure that settlement of the foundation will be within acceptable limits. Therefore, settlement analysis should generally be performed since most structures are sensitive to excessive settlement.
This 10 PDH online course is applicable to civil, structural and geotechnical engineers, as well as design and construction personnel who are involved with foundation investigation and design.
- Understanding the failure modes and other factors that influence the bearing capacity
- Knowing the non-load related design considerations due to environmental and geotechnical conditions
- Familiarizing with the laboratory and in situ methods of determining soil parameters required for analysis of bearing capacity
- Analyzing the bearing capacity of shallow and deep foundations
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the US Corps of Engineers Publication EM 1110-1-1905, "Bearing Capacity of Soils".
This online engineering PDH course presents the laws and rules of ethics and professional responsibility governing the practice of engineering in the State of Maryland. Excerpts from Title 14 of the Maryland Codes and Title 9, Subtitle 23 of the Maryland Regulations which relate to the rules of profession conduct, continuing education requirements, proper use of seal and other pertinent regulatory provisions are presented in this course.
Engineering ethics is (1) the study of moral issues and decisions confronting individuals and organizations involved in engineering and (2) the study of related questions about moral conduct, character, ideals and relationships of peoples and organizations involved in technological development (Martin and Schinzinger, Ethics in Engineering).
Since engineers are faced with frequent moral and ethical dilemmas while practicing their engineering profession, this course will provide you with moral and ethical guidance in your decision making process. Most importantly, it will provide you with insight on how to conduct, respect and protect your engineering practice with the utmost professionalism.
This 2 PDH online course is applicable to Professional Engineers licensed in the State of Maryland and who are required to demonstrate continuing professional competency in engineering ethics as a condition of their license renewal. For each renewal period, every licensee must complete sixteen (16) professional development hours, at least one of which must be relative to the rules of professional responsibility, conduct and ethics.
This PE continuing education engineering course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Gaining an overview of the laws and rules regulating the practice of engineering in the State of Maryland and their application to Professional Engineers
- Understanding the roles of the Maryland Board as well as its disciplinary authority and disciplinary process
- Learning about engineering ethics and the rules of professional conduct and responsibility
- Understanding the continuing education requirements, proper use of seal and other pertinent provisions in the State of Maryland
- Reviewing the disciplinary cases, range of violations and corresponding penalties imposed by the Maryland Board
