This online engineering PDH course describes bottlenecks and explores near-term operational and low-cost construction opportunities to correct them.
Delays due to traffic congestion seem like an unavoidable, frustrating fact of life. Or are they—unavoidable, that is? This course focuses on traffic congestion caused by bottlenecks—which are specific locations on the highway system where the physical layout of the roadway routinely cannot process the traffic that wants to use it and results in localized, recurring congestion.
By focusing on relieving localized, recurring congestion at bottlenecks, this primer can help agencies identify the right fix for a particular bottleneck. What’s more, the right fix for a localized, recurring bottleneck is usually spot-specific, more effective, less expensive, and faster to implement than building a new facility.
This 6 PDH online course is applicable to traffic engineers and planners, conceptual and detail designers, and other technical professionals who are interested in gaining a better understanding in traffic bottlenecks operational improvements.
- Understanding bottlenecks and congestion
- Learning about the different strategies of resolving congestion
- Knowing how to structure a localized bottleneck program
- Identifying, assessing and addressing bottlenecks
- Incorporating quick-fix bottleneck solutions into the Congestion Initiative
- Understanding how agencies are dealing with bottlenecks (case studies)
This online engineering PDH course sets forth some basic guiding principles and describes a general approach for developing, implementing, and assessing TMPs. This course is a compendium of guidance material, available resources, and suggested practices to help develop, implement, and assess transportation management plans (TMP) for work zones.
Work zone objectives, needs, and issues vary from project to project. Therefore, it is ultimately up to the professional to establish procedures and implement TMPs that best serve the safety and mobility needs of the traveling public, highway workers, businesses, and community.
This 7 PDH online course is applicable to transportation planners, traffic engineers, agency personnel as well as design and construction personnel involved with the development, review, approval, implementation, and assessment of TMPs.
- Understanding the purpose of transportation management plans
- Learning the process for TMP development, implementation and assessment
- Knowledge of potential TMP components
- Implementing work zone impacts management strategies
- Familiarizing with current TMP use, examples and practices
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the Federal Highway Administration Publication FHWA-HOP-05-066, "Developing and Implementing Transportation Plans for Work Zones".
This online PDH course 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 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.
This PE continuing education engineering course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Overview of the laws and rules regulating to 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
- Review of ethical and disciplinary case studies depicting various violations and their corresponding penalties
