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.
- Understanding mold preventative measures
- Investigating, evaluating, and remediating moisture and mold problems
- The importance of Personal Protective Equipment
- Developing a Mold Remediation Plan
This online engineering PDH course provides technical guidelines that will aid in the identification and selection of remedial actions at uncontrolled hazardous waste sites. It presents information on site-specific corrective measure alternatives including performance of preliminary assessments and site investigations to define the problem and determine its extent; remedial investigations and feasibility studies to develop options for remedial action; and selection of one or more cost-effective remedial actions in support of clean-up activities.
This 8 PDH online course is applicable to civil, environmental or geotechnical engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with hazardous and toxic waste remedial activities.
- Determination of the nature and extent of contamination
- Establishment of clean-up criteria
- Development and screening of remedial action alternatives
- Detailed analysis of remedial action alternatives
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 2 of the US Corps of Engineers Publication EM 1110-1-502, "Identification and Selection of Remedial Action/Corrective Measure Alternatives".
This online engineering PDH course presents the facts and statistics about the generation and disposition of municipal solid waste (MSW) over time in the United States. It examines the disposing of waste in landfills, recycling, composting, and combustion with energy recovery.
Approximately 262 million tons of MSW was generated in the United States in 2015. Understanding how waste is generated and disposed of is important for managing scarce materials.
This report analyzes MSW trends in generation and management, materials and products, and economic indicators affecting MSW. It also includes a section on the generation of construction and demolition (C&D) debris, which is not a part of MSW, but comprises a significant portion of the non-hazardous solid waste stream.
This 1 PDH online course is applicable to civil, environmental and sustainability engineers and other technical personnel who are interested in gaining a basic understanding of waste management on the individual and household level.
- Knowing where MSW comes from and how it is disposed of
- Understanding how to manage materials in order to maximize economic efficiency
- Learning when recycling, composting, and combusting with energy recovery should be used
- Familiarizing with the Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) process
This online engineering PDH presents excerpts of the statutory laws and rules governing the practice of engineering in the State of Texas as stipulated in Title 22, Part 6 of the Texas Administrative Code, including proper use of the engineer’s seal, compliance, enforcement and more.
This continuing education course also presents the Texas laws and rules of ethics and professional responsibility for engineers to understand and apply when they are frequently faced with different moral dilemmas while practicing their profession. The rules of professional conduct will provide moral and ethical guidance to engineers in their decision making process. Most importantly, it will provide engineers with insight on how to respect and protect their engineering practice with the utmost professionalism.
This 2 PDH online course is applicable to Professional Engineers licensed in the State of Texas and who are required to demonstrate continuing professional competency in engineering laws, rules and ethics as a condition of their license renewal. For each renewal period, every licensee must complete fifteen (15) professional development hours, at least one (1) of which must be relative to the Texas Laws and Rules, or to the rules of professional responsibility, conduct and ethics.
- Familiarizing with the laws and rules regulating the practice of engineering in the State of Texas
- Understanding the roles of the Texas Board and its disciplinary authority
- Learning about the proper use of seal, compliance and enforcement in the State of Texas
- Understanding the Texas Board disciplinary process
- Learning about engineering ethics and the rules of professional conduct and responsibility
- Gaining an overview of ethical and disciplinary case studies depicting various violations and their corresponding penalties
