COURSE TITLE: An Introduction to Area Development Plans
COURSE NO: B02-001
An Introduction to Area Development Plans
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to the ADP process that is commonly used in developing new project sites.  It presents the three processes involved in the preparation of an ADP as well as the data collection, analysis, evaluation and decision tasks that are necessary. It presents graphic examples of how to represent a land area so it can be evaluated and decisions made about a strategy for its development. The planning procedures described are a guide that can be modified to suit specific project requirements. These procedures provide a logical process that can be applied to a broad range of developments in order create a functional, efficient and environmentally sensitive Area Development Plan.

 

Facilities planning is an essential step in development of land for commercial, industrial, residential and public agency uses.  The three phases of a facilities planning process are: Master Planning, Area Development Planning and Site Planning. This course will focus on one of the three phases:  Area Development Planning (ADP).

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for civil engineers, architects, land use planners, designers, developers and construction professionals who are involved in the preparation and implementation of Area Development Plans.

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:
