COURSE TITLE: Mold Remediation in Schools and Commercial Buildings
COURSE NO: C04-049
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Mold Remediation in Schools and Commercial Buildings
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents guidelines for the remediation/clean-up of mold and moisture problems in schools and commercial buildings. These guidelines include measures designed to protect the health of building occupants and remediators. Individuals with little or no experience with mold remediation should be able to use this course to help them make a reasonable judgement as to whether the situation can be handled in-house. It will also help those in charge of maintenance to evaluate an in-house remediation plan submitted by an outside contractor.

 

Molds can be found almost anywhere. They can grow on virtually any organic substance if moisture and oxygen are present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, foods, and insulation. When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. It is impossible to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment. However, mold growth can be controlled indoors by controlling moisture indoors. 

 

When mold growth occurs in buildings, adverse health problems may be reported by some building occupants, particularly those with allergies or respiratory problems. Remediators should avoid exposing themselves and others to mold-laden dusts as they conduct their cleanup activities. Caution should be used to prevent mold and mold spores from being dispersed throughout the air where they can be inhaled by building occupants.

 

This 4 PDH online course is intended to environmental and facility engineers, building managers, custodians, and others who are involved in the development and implementation of mold prevention and remediation plans.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding mold preventative measures
  • Investigating, evaluating, and remediating moisture and mold problems
  • The importance of Personal Protective Equipment

COURSE TITLE: Reducing Lead in Drinking Water in Schools and Child Care Facilities
COURSE NO: C07-014
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Reducing Lead in Drinking Water in Schools and Child Care Facilities
Course Highlights

This online PDH course examines sources of lead contamination found in drinking water in schools and child care facilities. It features seven modules on how to enact a plan for testing, remediating, and communicating lead contamination in drinking water.

 

Lead had been widely used in plumbing in the U.S. until it was determined to be unsafe for human consumption. In children, lead exposure can cause reduced IQ and attention span, learning disabilities, poor classroom performance, hyperactivity, behavioral problems, impaired growth, and hearing loss. Thus, it is important to constantly test for, remediate, and communicate any lead contamination in drinking water.

 

This course maintains that the only way to know if there is lead in drinking water is testing. It provides information on likely sources of lead in a building’s plumbing system and how to sample different sources of drinking water. It also historically contextualizes the presence of lead in plumbing and subsequent phasing out after being determined unsafe for human consumption.

 

This 7 PDH online course is applicable to environmental, civil, and mechanical engineers as well as other technical personnel who are interested in learning more about eliminating lead sources from drinking water.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding how to sample drinking water for lead and interpret the results
  • Understanding the effects of lead exposure on the human body, particularly for children
  • Learning about the historical context in which lead was used in plumbing in the U.S. and why it was phased out
  • Learning how to develop and enact a plan to test for, remediate, and communicate any lead contamination in drinking water in schools and child care facilities
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review "Reducing Lead in Drinking Water in Schools and Child Care Facilities" by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), publication EPA 815-B-18-007, dated October 2018.

COURSE TITLE: Solid Waste Disposal Facility - Closure and Post Closure Criteria
COURSE NO: C03-005
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Solid Waste Disposal Facility - Closure and Post Closure Criteria
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes EPA's closure and post-closure criteria for solid waste disposal facilities. The criteria for landfill closure focus on two central themes: (1) the need to establish low-maintenance cover systems and (2) the need to design a final cover that minimizes the infiltration of precipitation into the waste.

 

Critical technical issues that must be faced by the designer include the following:

  • Degree and rate of post-closure and stresses imposed on soil liner components
  • Long-term durability and survivability of cover system
  • Long-term waste decomposition and management of landfill leachate and gases
  • Environmental performance of the combined bottom liner and final cover system

 

Full closure and post-closure requirements apply to municipal solid waste landfill (MSWLF) units that have been receiving waste since October 9, 1993. For MSWLF units that stopped receiving wastes prior to October 9, 1993, only the final cover requirements apply.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable to owners, operators of MSWLF units, as well as engineers, designers, managers, construction workers and any other personnel involved with the closure and post-closure of municipal solid waste landfills.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Final cover design
  • Alternative final cover design
  • Closure plan
  • Closure criteria
  • Post-closure care requirements
  • Post-closure plans
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 6, “Closure and Post-Closure” of the EPA “Solid Waste Disposal Facility Criteria” Technical Manual.

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
