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: 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:

COURSE TITLE: Safety and Health Programs in Construction
COURSE NO: C03-062
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Safety and Health Programs in Construction
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides responsible employers, workers, and worker representatives with a sound, flexible framework for addressing safety and health issues on diverse construction job sites.

 

This course follows a proactive approach to managing occupational safety and health rather than a traditional approach where actions are taken only after a worker is injured or becomes sick. Finding and fixing hazards before they cause injury or illness is a far more effective approach. Doing so avoids the direct and indirect costs of worker injuries and illnesses and promotes a positive work environment.

 

Employers will find that implementing the recommended practices highlighted in this course will bring other benefits as well such as improvements in production/quality, better employee morale, improved employee recruiting and retention, and a more favorable image and reputation among customers, suppliers, and the community.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable to health and safety engineers, construction and project managers, site engineers, and anyone who is interested in improving the standard and level of health and safety on construction sites.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding the seven core elements of the recommended practices for safety and health programs in construction
  • Learning about the importance of effective management leadership
  • Understanding how to promote worker participation
  • Familiarizing with hazard identification and assessment
  • Learning about hazard prevention and control
  • Familiarizing with the education and training mindset required on site
  • Gaining insight on evaluation and improvement programs
  • Understanding the importance of communication and coordination for employers on multiemployer worksites
Course Document
