COURSE TITLE: Developing Your Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP)
COURSE NO: C04-057
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Developing Your Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP)
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH offers steps for planning how to prevent and contain stormwater pollution. It offers a step by step guide on what should be included in the plan, as well as helpful tips for how the plan can be maintained, adhered to, and exceeded in order to ensure a high level of quality.

 

Stormwater runoff is water from rain or snowmelt that does not immediately infiltrate into the ground and flows over or through natural or man-made storage or conveyance systems. When undeveloped areas are converted to land uses with impervious surfaces such as buildings, parking lots, and roads, the natural hydrology of the land is altered and can result in increased surface runoff rates, volumes, and pollutant loads.

 

This course provides useful tips about maintaining a SWPPP, as well as examples of and foresight into what can go wrong with various different kinds of materials which are commonly found at industrial sites. This includes solids, liquids, and waste. It also provides useful information on how to effectively and efficiently handle stormwater discharge in the event that control measures fail, and information on monitoring pollutants in stormwater discharge.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to industrial, civil, environmental, and sustainability engineers as well as others interested in gaining a basic understanding about developing a stormwater pollution prevention plan.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding what causes stormwater pollution and its effects on the environment
  • Learning how to prevent and contain stormwater pollution
  • Learning how to develop a stormwater pollution prevention plan in order to be in compliance with a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit
  • Learning how to analyze the particular pollutants in your stormwater discharge
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review "Developing Your Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan" a Guide for Industrial Operators by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), publication EPA 833-B-09-002, dated June 2015.

COURSE TITLE: Construction Site Storm Water Control (Comprehensive)
COURSE NO: C09-001
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Construction Site Storm Water Control (Comprehensive)
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course explains how to prevent erosion due to site stormwater runoff from affecting the aquatic life and hydraulic characteristics of water.

 

Erosion and sedimentation related to construction site storm water runoff can significantly affect the aquatic population and hydraulic characteristics of the receiving waters. Alterations in hydraulic characteristics of streams receiving runoff include higher peak flow rates, increased frequency and duration of bankfull and subbankfull flows, increased occurrences of downstream flooding, and reduced baseflow levels.

 

EPA recognizes that such alterations can be prevented by implementing an effective storm water management program.  Therefore the EPA published the Storm Water Phase II Rule on December 8, 1999, that describes a menu of Best Management Practices (BMP). “Construction Site Storm Water Runoff Control” is one of the Best Management Practices that requires operators of small MS4s in urbanized areas to implement a storm water management program for the protection of wetlands and aquatic ecosystems, improved quality of receiving water bodies, conservation of water resources, flood control, and protection of public health.

 

This 9 PDH online course is applicable to municipality owners and/or operators, construction contractors/workers, site developers, engineers, managers, and all other personnel involved in the implementation of runoff controls for storm water runoff from construction sites.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Types and methods of runoff control systems
  • Applicability
  • Siting and design criteria
  • Maintenance and cost considerations
  • Effectiveness and limitations
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review EPA’s Best Management Practice relating to “Construction Site Storm Water Runoff Control”. This BMP addresses the following:

 

  • Runoff Control
  • Erosion Control
  • Sediment Control
  • Good Housekeeping

Course Quiz

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of forty (40) questions to earn 9 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on this EPA publication.

The minimum passing score is 70%. There is no time limit on the quiz, and you can take it multiple times until you pass at no additional cost.

COURSE TITLE: Ethics in Professional Practice
COURSE NO: LE2-007
Ethics in Professional Practice
Course Highlights

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.

Learning Objectives

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

  • 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
Course Document

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).
