This online engineering PDH course addresses the identification of the chemicals to be classified; explains the process of data collection and describes the process and information needed for data analysis. Furthermore, this course presents information on the rationale used to develop the classification of the various hazards.
OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) is designed to protect against chemical-source injuries and illnesses by ensuring that employers and workers are provided with sufficient information to anticipate, recognize, evaluate, and control chemical hazards and take appropriate protective measures. The purpose of the Hazard Communication Standard is to ensure that the hazards of all chemicals produced or imported are classified, and that the information on the hazardous chemicals is transmitted to employers and workers.
The 2 PDH online course is intended for chemical manufacturers and distributors, employers, engineers, physicians, construction workers, and all other personnel who are interested in learning more about chemical hazard classification process.
- Learning how to identify the chemicals to be classified
- Understanding the data collection process
- Learning how to analyze the data or findings
- Knowing how to record the findings
This online engineering PDH course summarizes the application of algae as indicators of nutrient pollution in water quality management. It describes the use of algal indicators to develop water quality diagnostics for nutrient pollution in the United States (U.S.) and then reviews scientific developments in the use and application of algal indicators across the world.
Algae are ubiquitous and essential components of all stream ecosystems. They are the primary energetic source for many stream food webs, fixing carbon from the atmosphere through photosynthesis, which is then transmitted through the web via consumer pathways.
Algae have a long history of use and possess many of the features valued in ecological indicators. They were part of the early saprobien indicator system development in Germany and were one of the first assemblages developed for use in biological assessment in the United States.
This 3 PDH online course is intended for chemical and environmental engineers and water quality professionals who are seeking to utilize algae to detect the presence of nutrient pollution and to estimate the risks of nutrient pollution in adversely affecting the condition of stream ecosystems.
- Gaining general background information on algae
- Familiarizing with the current algal sampling programs in the United States
- Learning about the research on algal assessment and indicator using in streams
- Identifying the quantitative and qualitative algal application methods
This online engineering PDH course will introduce you to methods for cleaning industrial water systems with chemicals. You will learn about pre-operational cleaning which is performed to prepare water-contacted metal surfaces to receive chemical treatment to provide protection from scale, corrosion and microbiological growth. You will also learn about remedial cleaning to restore water systems that have been fouled with scale, corrosion products and microbiological growth due to inadequate or ineffective water treatment. Examples of industrial water systems for which chemical cleaning are applicable are boilers, heat exchangers, cooling towers, and chillers.
Maintenance of an effective water treatment program is essential to minimize scale and corrosion problems in industrial water systems; however, scale and deposits will often form and require remedial cleaning. If not removed, these scale and water-caused deposits may impact the safety of operations personnel, interfere with heat transfer, and cause excessive damage to, or destruction of, the water-using equipment.
This 3 PDH online course is intended for industrial, chemical and mechanical engineers, as well as, maintenance personnel and construction professionals interested in learning about the use of chemicals for cleaning industrial water systems and equipment such as boilers, heat exchangers, cooling towers and chillers.
- Learning about pre-operational cleaning of new industrial water-using systems and equipment
- Learning about remedial cleaning of industrial water systems and equipment to restore them to optimal operating condition
- Learning about chemical cleaning methods that have largely superseded mechanical cleaning methods
- Learning about chemicals used for chemical treatment of industrial water systems
- Learning about the use of hydrochloric acid to remove carbonates scale with lesser amounts of phosphates, sulfates and silicates
- Learning about hydrochloric acid's limitations where stainless or galvanized steel is part of the system
- Learning about the use of sulfamic acid to remove scale from metal surfaces
- Learning about the importance of isolating equipment to be cleaned from other parts of the system using valves, rubber blankets, wooden bulkheads with seals, inflatable nylon or rubber bags, rubber sponge-covered plugs, or blind flanges and steel plates with rubber seals
- Learning about the recirculating cleaning process for boilers
- Learning about a circulating method for descaling smaller equipment that does not require heating
- Learning about the fill and soak method of chemical cleaning
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled, "An Introduction to Chemical Cleaning of Industrial Water Systems".
This online engineering PDH course discusses the sources of ozone depleting substances (ODS) in the United States and abroad and defines the best practices for the safe, environmentally sound collection, recovery, transport, and destruction of these substances. In addition, this course explains the challenges associated with the safe destruction of ODS and assesses the costs for the ODS waste management process.
The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer (Montreal Protocol), finalized in 1987, is a global agreement to protect the stratospheric ozone layer by phasing out the production and consumption of ODS.
While the global ODS phaseout is underway, a large amount of ODS is in equipment and products such as refrigerators and air conditioners (as refrigerant and foam blowing agent), foam contained in buildings, and fire protection systems and fire extinguishers, as well as in stockpiles held by countries and industrial and commercial users. Together these sources are referred to as ODS banks.
This 4 PDH online course is intended for environmental, sustainability, industrial, and mechanical engineers, as well as others interested in learning about the best practices for destruction of ODS.
- Familiarizing with the sources of ODS
- Learning about the best management practices regarding the process of ODS destruction
- Familiarizing with ODS destruction technologies and facilities in the U.S. and worldwide
- Gaining perspective and metrics on the international efforts to destroy ODS
- Understanding the financial considerations of ODS recovery, transportation, and destruction costs
This online engineering PDH course explains why certain chemicals are considered hazardous to personnel working in facilities containing such chemicals. It also provides an overview of handling chemicals as well as provides resources of information about these chemicals.
The various chemicals found in our industry as well as the home are useful when properly applied. If the user is uninformed about correct applications, storage, and potential hazards, these chemicals can become threats to our safety.
This 5 PDH online course is applicable to chemical and environmental engineers, design and construction personnel, technical staff and facility operators who are interested in gaining a better understanding of the hazards of chemicals and gases.

This online engineering PDH course presents the laws and rules of ethics and professional responsibility governing the practice of engineering in the State of Pennsylvania. Excerpts from Pennsylvania ACT 367 as well as Chapter 37 of the Pennsylvania Code, which relate to the rules of profession conduct, continuing education requirements, proper use of seal and other pertinent regulatory provisions are presented in this course.
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).
