This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on details of concrete curing practice as they pertain to construction of Portland cement concrete pavements. It is organized around the major events in curing pavements: curing immediately after placement (initial curing), curing during the period after final finishing (final curing), and termination of curing and evaluation of effectiveness of curing.
Curing has long been recognized as an important process in constructing durable concrete pavements. Proper curing allows the concrete to develop its potential strength and durability. Inadequate curing can result in surface damage in the form of plastic shrinkage cracking, spalling, and erosion of paste. Since many variables influence the choice of curing materials and when and how to apply curing, the material presented places particular emphasis on attention to details with respect to moisture retention and concrete temperature control.
This 5 PDH online course is applicable to civil, structural and geotechnical engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the design and installation of concrete pavements.
- Selection of curing materials and procedures
- Analysis of concrete properties and jobsite conditions
- Knowing how to adjust the curing practice to account for specific project conditions
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the Federal Highway Administration Publication FHWA-RD-02-099, "Guide for Curing of Portland Cement Concrete Pavements".
This online engineering PDH course provides information and guidance on the use of RCC in dams and other civil works structures. Elements discussed include investigation and selection of materials, mixture proportioning, design and construction considerations, construction equipment and techniques, inspection, and performance.

RCC may be considered for application where no-slump concrete can be transported, placed, and compacted using earth and rock-fill construction equipment. Ideal RCC projects will involve large placement areas, little or no reinforcement, and little or no embedded metal work or other discontinuities such as piles. Application of RCC should be considered when it is economically competitive with other construction methods. It may be considered in lieu of gabions or riprap for bank protection, especially in those areas where riprap is scarce. It may be considered for large work pads, aprons, or paved areas, massive open foundations, base slabs, cofferdams, massive backfill, emergency repairs, and overtopping protection for embankment dams. It may be used in lieu of conventionally placed concrete in concrete gravity and arch-gravity dams. RCC may be considered for use in levees where foundations are adequate and may also be used in caps for jetties to reduce the amount of required rock.
This 8 PDH online course is applicable to civil, structural or geotechnical engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the planning, design, construction of roller-compacted concrete structures.
- RCC applications, objectives and advantages
- Investigation and selection of materials
- Mixture proportioning considerations and selection
- Understanding the properties of RCC
- Design and construction considerations
- Construction methods and equipment
- Quality control and quality assurance in RCC construction
- RCC performance
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the US Corps of Engineers Publication EM 1110-2-2006, "Roller Compacted Concrete".
This online engineering PDH course provides guidance in hydrologic analysis of interior areas for planning, design investigations, and flood risk reduction.
Floods have social, environmental, and economic consequences and they directly impact people and communities. Some of the immediate impacts of flooding includes loss of human life, loss of livestock, and damages to properties and crops.
This course provides information of interest to planners and designers of interior system involving flood loss reduction measures and actions. Interior area investigations are differentiated from other studies only by the uniqueness of the hydrologic analysis requirements for the flood loss reduction measures commonly used. Interior area planning studies are an essential aspects of feasibility studies.
This 11 PDH online course is applicable to civil, environmental, and stormwater management engineers as well as other technical personnel interested in learning more about hydrologic analysis of interior areas.
- Understanding the basic concepts and considerations pertinent to hydrologic studies of interior areas
- Learning the approaches, strategies, and requirements of interior hydrologic engineering studies
- Learning about the analysis methods and procedures for riverine and coastal interior areas
- Familiarizing with flood risk management measures
- Learning about the analysis of residual risk and resiliency
- Learning about a case example of the coincident frequency
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the US Corps of Engineers Publication EM 1110-2-1413 "Hydrologic Analysis of Interior Areas".
This online engineering PDH course provides engineers with some of the fundamentals of planning and developing groundwater resources. It describes the nature of groundwater, methods of obtaining it from springs or wells, and the development and maintenance of groundwater recovery systems.
Groundwater has many advantages over water from other sources and has considerable economic importance. The principal ways of using groundwater are through spring and well developments. A spring is a natural outflow of water from an underground supply to the ground surface. A well (vertical or horizontal) is a hole drilled, dug, or driven into the earth to obtain groundwater.
This 4 PDH online course is intended for civil, construction, mechanical, and other engineers concerned with the design, development, maintenance, and construction of groundwater recovery systems.
- Identifying sources of water supply in water-bearing materials
- Understanding the effects of geologic structure on groundwater resources
- Learning the principles of spring design and maintenance
- Familiarizing with the various types of wells and their development after installation
- Applying the principles of hydraulics, and pump selection
- Understanding applicable state laws and groundwater rights
- Learning the principles of contracts, specifications and abandonment
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 12, “Springs and Wells” of the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service document, “Part 650–Engineering Field Handbook, Pub. #210-VI-NEH, July, 2012.
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.
