Advancing Sustainable Materials Management (C01-021)
Engineering Ethics for Mississippi Professional Engineers (MS2-001)
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.
- Understanding mold preventative measures
- Investigating, evaluating, and remediating moisture and mold problems
- The importance of Personal Protective Equipment
- Developing a Mold Remediation Plan
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 the facts and statistics about the generation and disposition of municipal solid waste (MSW) over time in the United States. It examines the disposing of waste in landfills, recycling, composting, and combustion with energy recovery.
Approximately 262 million tons of MSW was generated in the United States in 2015. Understanding how waste is generated and disposed of is important for managing scarce materials.
This report analyzes MSW trends in generation and management, materials and products, and economic indicators affecting MSW. It also includes a section on the generation of construction and demolition (C&D) debris, which is not a part of MSW, but comprises a significant portion of the non-hazardous solid waste stream.
This 1 PDH online course is applicable to civil, environmental and sustainability engineers and other technical personnel who are interested in gaining a basic understanding of waste management on the individual and household level.
- Knowing where MSW comes from and how it is disposed of
- Understanding how to manage materials in order to maximize economic efficiency
- Learning when recycling, composting, and combusting with energy recovery should be used
- Familiarizing with the Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) process
This online engineering PDH course presents the laws and rules of professional responsibility governing the practice of engineering in the State of Mississippi through the Mississippi Code: Title 73, Chapter 13, “Professional Engineers and Surveyors” and Title 30, Part 901, “Rules and Regulations of the Mississippi Board of Licensure for Professional Engineers and Surveyors”.
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 Mississippi 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 thirty (30) professional development hours, at least one (1) of which must be relative to the rules of professional responsibility, conduct and ethics. The remaining hours shall relate to the licensee's area of practice.
- Understanding the Mississippi laws and rules regulating the practice of engineering in the State of Mississippi and their application to Professional Engineers
- Understanding the rules of professional responsibility, professional conduct and engineering ethics
- Familiarizing with the Mississippi disciplinary process and the various violations and corresponding penalties imposed by the board
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled “Engineering Ethics for Mississippi Professional Engineers”.
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of ten (10) questions to earn 2 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on the entire document.
