This online PDH course primarily covers engineering countermeasures for horizontal curve safety that are relatively low-cost, such as signage and pavement markings.
This course is intended to provide information specifically relating to lower volume two-lane roads and the agencies that manage them. It will help transportation agencies and their crews understand the available countermeasures and how to select and apply them.
This 8 PDH online course is applicable to traffic engineers, local transport agencies, design professionals and personnel who wish to understand the available horizontal curve safety countermeasures and how to select and apply them.
- Learning about the two components of safety improvements
- Familiarization with the markings, signs, and pavement countermeasures that are used to improve horizontal curve safety
- Addressing the importance of roadside conditions and improvement opportunities
- Familiarization with the possible means of improving intersections
This online engineering PDH course presents the factors that lead up to the decision to construct a roundabout with an approximate configuration at a specific location, preceding the detailed analysis and design of a roundabout. By confirming that there is good reason to believe that roundabout construction is feasible and that a roundabout offers a sensible method of accommodating the traffic demand, these planning activities make unnecessary the expenditure of effort required subsequently.
This course also presents methods for analyzing the operation of an existing or planned roundabout. These methods allow a transportation analyst to assess the operational performance of a facility, given information about the usage of the facility and its geometric design elements. An operational analysis produces two kinds of estimates: (1) the capacity of a facility, i.e., the ability of the facility to accommodate various streams of users, and (2) the level of performance, often measured in terms of one or more measures of effectiveness, such as delay and queues.
This 5 PDH online course is applicable to traffic engineers, transportation planners, conceptual and detailed designers, and other technical professionals who are involved in the planning and operation of roundabouts.
- Considering the various constraints for constructing a roundabout
- Determining a preliminary lane configuration and selecting a roundabout category based on capacity requirements
- Performing the analysis appropriate to the roundabout selection category
- Determining the space requirements and feasibility
- Understanding the traffic operations at roundabouts
- Obtaining data required to evaluate the performance of a roundabout
- Estimating the capacity of the various roundabout configurations
- Applying measures of effectiveness determine the performance of a roundabout and estimating these measures
- Familiarizing with the different computer software packages available to implement the capacity and performance analysis procedures
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 4, "Planning" and Chapter 5, "Operation", of the Federal Highway Administration Publication FHWA-RD-00-067, "Understanding Roundabouts".
This online engineering PDH course presents guidelines on the design of traffic elements, illumination, and landscaping associated with roundabouts.
The design of these elements is critical in achieving the desired operational and safety features of a roundabout, as well as the desired visibility and aesthetics.
This 3 PDH online course is applicable to traffic engineers, transportation planners, conceptual and detailed designers, and other technical professionals who are involved in the traffic design and landscaping of roundabouts.
- Designing the traffic elements including signing, pavement markings and work zone traffic control
- Designing the required illumination
- Landscaping the central island, splitter island and approach
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 7, "Traffic Design and Landscaping", of the Federal Highway Administration Publication FHWA-RD-00-067, "Understanding Roundabouts".
The first part of this course begins with an overview of the Laws and Rules governing the practice of engineering in the State of Florida (Chapter 1) including:
- Florida Statutes, Chapter 455, “Department of Business and Professional Regulation”
- Florida Statutes, Chapter 471, “Engineering”
- Florida Administrative Code, 61G15, F.A.C., “Florida Board of Professional Engineers”
Then, it continues to address the rules amended, adopted or otherwise repealed from 61G15, F.A.C. (Chapter 2) as well as the changes to Chapters 455, F.S. and 471, F.S. (Chapter 3), within the preceding biennium, as applicable.
The second part of this course presents engineering ethics and the principles of professional responsibility (Chapter 4). It further illustrates the application of Chapters 455 and 471, F.S. to a randomly selected set of ethical and disciplinary cases.
This 2 PDH online engineering course is applicable to Professional Engineers licensed in the State of Florida and who are required to demonstrate continuing professional competency in the Florida Laws, Rules and Ethics as a condition of license renewal. For each renewal period, every licensee must complete eighteen (18) professional development hours as follows:
- One hour must relate to this chapter and the rules adopted under this chapter;
- One hour must relate to professional ethics;
- Four hours must relate to the licensee’s area of practice; and
- The remaining hours may relate to any topic pertinent to the practice of engineering.
This PE continuing education engineering course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the different Florida laws and rules regulating the practice of engineering in the State of Florida and their application to Professional Engineers
- Learning the rules adopted, amended or repealed from 61G15 within the preceding biennium
- Learning the changes made to Chapters 455, F.S. and 471, F.S. within the preceding biennium
- Understanding ethical behavior and the principles of professional responsibility in the field of engineering
- Understanding the general application of Chapters 455 and 471, F.S. to various ethical and disciplinary cases of Professional Engineers
