COURSE TITLE: Low Impact Development Design Strategies
COURSE NO: C07-006
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Low Impact Development Design Strategies
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the wide array of impact reduction and site design techniques that allow engineers and planners to create stormwater control mechanisms that function in a manner similar to that of natural control mechanisms.

 

The low-impact development (LID) approach combines a hydrologically functional site design with pollution prevention measures to compensate for land development impacts on hydrology and water quality. The primary goal of Low Impact Development methods is to mimic the predevelopment site hydrology by using site design techniques that store, infiltrate, evaporate, and detain runoff. Use of these techniques helps to reduce off-site runoff and ensure adequate groundwater recharge. Since every aspect of site development affects the hydrologic response of the site, LID control techniques focus mainly on site hydrology.

 

This 7 PDH online course is intended for civil and environmental engineers and planners as well as construction professionals who are interested in learning about low impact development design techniques and their applications.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding low-impact development goals
  • Understanding low-impact development site planning
  • Understanding low-impact development hydrologic analysis
  • Understanding low-impact development integrated management
  • Understanding erosion and sediment control considerations for low-impact development

COURSE TITLE: Groundwater Hydrology
COURSE NO: C09-002
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Groundwater Hydrology
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents an overview of the occurrence and movement of groundwater. Procedures for planning and managing a site characterization and modeling study are then presented. This is followed by chapters addressing the technical aspects of field investigative methods and computer modeling. A final chapter discussing the interaction of groundwater and surface water is then presented.

 

Since it is not possible to provide specific instructions and/or specific procedures that are universally applicable to every situation that may be encountered, this course emphasizes the use of sound judgment and the development of a good understanding of basic groundwater concepts rather than providing specific guidelines.

 

This 9 PDH online course is applicable to civil and environmental engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the study and analysis of groundwater flow.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Occurrence and movement of groundwater
  • Planning a groundwater investigation and modeling study
  • Field investigative methods
  • Computer modeling of groundwater flow
  • Interaction between surface water and groundwater
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the US Corps of Engineers Publication EM 1110-2-1421, "Groundwater Hydrology".

Course Quiz
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of forty five (45) questions to earn 9 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on Chapters 1 through 6 of this publication. The appendices are provided for reference only.

 

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: Durability of Geosynthetics for Highway Applications
COURSE NO: C01-018
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Durability of Geosynthetics for Highway Applications
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents a study that addresses various aspects of geosynthetic durability to develop procedures that could be used to predict long-term strength losses of geosynthetics used in highway applications. These procedures are essential to designers for allowing tensile capacity for geosynthetics used primarily in mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) retaining walls, reinforced soil slopes, and foundation stabilization.

 

This study was initiated to allow voiced concerns that stress-cracking potential was not being considered in developing the allowable tension load capacity for design when using high-density polyethylene (HDPE) geogrids. Stress cracking is a potential mode of failure occurring in thermoplastic materials that are under a sustained stress significantly lower than the material’s room temperature yield strength, resulting in quasi-brittle fracture of the material. This is also known as slow crack growth and environmental stress cracking (ESC) when in contact with certain aqueous solutions.

 

This 1 PDH online course is applicable to all civil engineers, highway design professionals, transportation planners, material manufacturers and all personnel interested in learning about geosynthetics for highway applications.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Developing testing protocols necessary to quantify any strength reduction due to aging or stress mechanisms for geosynthetics
  • Developing testing protocols for confined stress-strain testing, which could more accurately characterize key engineering properties
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Report No. FHWA-RD-97-142, "Durability of Geosynthetics for Highway Applications”.

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.
