COURSE TITLE: Pre-Coating Surface Preparation
COURSE NO: T02-003
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Pre-Coating Surface Preparation
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes surface preparation standards, common methods of surface preparation, and abrasive type and selection methods.

 

Surface preparation is the key factor in determining the success of a protective coating system. The equipment and techniques that can be used to achieve the desired surface cleanliness and roughness (profile) vary considerably. Traditional methods of surface preparation are now accompanied by new, innovative methods that have evolved mainly because of the issues surrounding the safe removal of lead-containing coatings from industrial structures. The ultimate objective of surface preparation is to create proper adhesion of a coating over an underlying substrate.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to engineers, design and construction personnel, and other technical professionals who are interested in gaining a better understanding of surface preparation prior to coating applications.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Common methods of surface preparation
  • Abrasive type and selection
  • Surface preparation standards and specifications

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.
