This online engineering PDH course provides tips and information on how to save energy and money in your home through simple and achievable changes.
In the face of our current global sustainability challenges, it is our duty as a society to make individual changes to our personal lives to reduce our impact wherever possible. These changes should start within our homes, and contrary to what the majority may believe, we actually have the ability to save money and energy in our own home.
Saving energy reduces the demand for the resources needed to make energy, and improving your energy efficiency is like adding another clean energy source to an electric power grid. This results in reduced utility bills and additional money in your pocket. Furthermore, improving your energy efficiency can also improve the comfort of your home and your quality of life.
This 4 PDH online course is applicable to electrical, mechanical, and sustainable engineers, homeowners and contractors as well as others interested in learning more about how to save energy and money in homes.
- Understanding the importance of conducting a home energy audit
- Learning about energy savings by weatherizing your home
- Understanding the importance of heating and cooling considerations
- Learning about the role of landscaping in energy reduction
- Familiarizing with the possible renewable energy options available to homeowners
- Understanding the basic principles of energy savings in relation to vehicles and fuels
- Familiarizing with the financial systems that are available in the US for supporting energy saving initiatives
This online engineering PDH course presents a brief overview of under floor air distribution (UFAD) systems which are raised floor systems within which plenums are used to deliver conditioned air to the space through floor grills. This course also describes the costs associated with installing UFAD systems.
Recent trends in today's office environment make it increasingly more difficult for conventional centralized HVAC systems to satisfy the environmental preferences of individual office workers using the standardized approach of providing a single uniform thermal and ventilation environment.
This 1 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical engineers, designers, contractors, building professionals, and all personnel interested in gaining a better understating of UFAD systems.
- Understanding the principles of operation behind UFAD systems
- Knowing the advantages and limitations associated with UFAD systems
- Familiarizing with the cost considerations associated with the installation of UFAD systems
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review "Alternative Air Conditioning Technologies: Underfloor Air Distribution (UFAD) "of the Department of Energy (DOE) publication DOE/EE-0295 and FEMP.
This online engineering PDH course describes basic process heating applications and equipment, and outlines opportunities for energy and performance improvements. It also discusses the merits of using a systems approach in identifying and implementing these improvement opportunities for Fuel-Based and Electric-Based heating systems. Furthermore, it provides recommendations to financially justify process heating improvement projects (System Economics).
Process heating is essential in the manufacture of most consumer and industrial products, including those made out of metal, plastic, rubber, carbon fiber, concrete, glass, and ceramics. Process heating systems are broken into three basic categories: Fuel-Based Process Heating, Electric-Based Process Heating, and Steam-Based Process Heating all of which are discussed in details.
This 5 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical, industrial and process engineers, designers, manufacturers and all personnel involved in the planning, design and installation of process heating systems.
- Understanding the basics behind process heating operations
- Familiarizing with the common types of process heating systems and equipment
- Recognizing efficiency opportunities for fuel-based and electric-based heating systems
- Learning how to financially justify process heating improvement projects
This online engineering PDH course describes the state-of-the art, cutting edge efforts by scientists and engineers in the United States who are involved with research to continue to find alternate energy sources for the future. These energy sources will be of vital importance to sustaining and improving the quality of life on planet earth and beyond. This course explains how the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) leads the world in the conception, design, construction, and operation of these large-scale devices. It also discusses that these machines have enabled U.S. researchers to make some of history's important scientific discoveries, with spin-off technological advances leading to entirely new industries.
Throughout its history, the Department of Energy's Office of Science has designed, constructed, and operated many of the Nation's most advanced, large-scale research and development user facilities, of importance to all areas of science. These state-of-the-art facilities are shared with the science community worldwide and contain technologies and instrumentation that are available nowhere else. As the steward of America's national laboratories, the Department of Energy has a special responsibility to plan for and propose Office of Science investments for the future that will serve to advance the national, energy, and economic security of the United States.
This 3 PDH online course is intended for engineers who are interested in current and future state-of-the art energy sources that will provide good stewardship of America's limited energy sources.
- Energy Sciences Network (ESnet)
- National Energy Research Scientific Computing (NERSC) Center
- National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS)
- Advanced Light Source (ALS)
- Advanced Photon Source (APS)
- High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) Center for Neutron Scattering
In this online engineering PDH course, background on the philosophical models that guide ethical behavior is discussed and then applied to specific situations in engineering codes of ethics. This course is based on the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Professional Practice Curriculum, Volume 8, Section: Engineering Ethics.
Many engineering organizations have drafted codes of ethics to which their members are required to commit. Generally, these codes are quite similar and are based on a few fundamental principles which provide guidance to professional engineers in common situations. Nevertheless, there are many difficult or ambiguous situations in which the best ethical solution is difficult to determine.
This 2 PDH online course is intended primarily for engineers seeking to learn ethical principles and how to apply them to their professional practice.
Determining ethical behavior using several philosophical models
Evaluating a practical situation in terms of a professional code of ethics
Identifying situations that represent conflicts of interest and formulate a proper response
Applying the standards of professional ethics in technical communication
Recognizing environmental impacts of engineering work
Considering principles of sustainable development in the performance of professional duties
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review "Ethics in Professional Practice" published by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). (This course document is reproduced by permission of the ASME (www.asme.org). You may also download from or view this course document on the ASME's website by clicking on Ethics in Professional Practice).
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of fifteen (15) questions to earn 2 PDH credit. The quiz will be based on this ASME publication.
