Alabama-Environmental Engineering Package: 30 PDH


Eleven Environmental Engineering courses plus Alabama Laws, Rules, & Ethics course that will earn 30 PDH guaranteed to be accepted by the Alabama State Board of Licensure for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors Instructor: Raymond Bosek, PE

Alabama – Laws, Rules, and Ethics for Professional Engineers: 3 PDH

In this course the student will study the Alabama State Board of Licensure for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors Laws and Rules, including Professional Engineering Ethics. A twenty-five question quiz will test his or her understanding of the subject

Process Design for Conversion of Biomass to Biofuels: 4 PDH

In this course you the student will understand the motivation, process, design, and cost of converting biomass into biofuel. The focus of this course is to find a plausible pathway to convert algal carbohydrates and lipids to fuel and to minimize cost during production.

Carbon Absorption of Volatile Organic Compounds: 3 PDH

Carbon adsorption is used in air pollution control to remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from low to medium concentration gas streams, when stringent outlet concentration must be met and/or recovery of the VOC is desired. This course covers the types of adsorbers, adsorption theory, and design procedures for carbon adsorption equipment.

Building Envelope Impact on HVAC Energy Use: 3 PDH

How airtight are the buildings you are responsible for? What is the energy load and indoor air quality like in your buildings? The only way to know is to perform a study. Despite common assumptions, measurements have shown that typical U.S. commercial buildings are not particularly airtight. In this course we present a recent simulation study on the impact of improving envelope airtightness in U.S. commercial buildings. You get documented, verifiable facts, report charts and graphs illustrating the findings, and a discussion from the report on the results of the study, Investigation of the Impact of Commercial Building Envelope Airtightness on HVAC Energy Use.

Fire Protection System Design: 3 PDH

This three (3) hour course overviews standards to design and build an environment for building occupants that is reasonably safe from fire and products of combustion as well as how to provide a reasonable level of building usability and property protection from the effects of fire and products of combustion.

Hurricane Mitigation: Summary Report On Building Performance: 3 PDH

After major hurricane disasters, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) dispatches Building Performance Assessment Teams (BPATs) to evaluate the successes and failures of buildings to withstand the wind and flood forces of these storms. The teams document the results of their evaluations in building performance assessment reports. This 3-hour online course summarizes the BPAT reports for Hurricane Katerina.

A Guide to Offshore Wind Energy: 2 PDH

Offshore wind turbines harness the energy of the ocean winds and turn it into electricity. This course introduces the basic principles of proposed US offshore wind facilities. The course summarizes a study conducted by EESI of existing European and Asian offshore wind farms. The topics addressed include technical issues related to marine foundations and structures, transmission issues unique to offshore power generation, political and regulatory issues and the public’s perceptions of proposed offshore wind farms. This course demonstrates that offshore wind energy has been successfully implemented in other parts of the world and that the potential for wind farms in U.S. waters is favorable.

Hazardous Waste Identification: 2 PDH

This course covers hazardous waste regulated by the EPA under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), starting with determining whether what waste is considered a solid waste according to the RCRA regulations and moving on to determining if it fits one of the RCRA requirements for being a hazardous waste.

Improving Energy Efficiency in Historic Buildings: 2 PDH

In this course the student will learn the general concept of the most efficient methods to enhance energy efficiency of historic buildings, while limiting the damage done during the rehabilitation process.

Ponds- Planning, Design, Construction: 2 PDH

This course provides guidance on some of the required criteria the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has in place for the planning, design, construction and maintenance of ponds. This course describes basic design principles of embankment and excavation ponds as well as construction requirements. This online PDH course is intended for hydrologists, civil engineers, agricultural engineers, construction engineers, municipal engineers, geotechnical engineers and environmental engineers.

Energy Performance of LEED for New Construction Buildings: 2 PDH

This course focuses on the measured energy performance for 121 LEED New Construction buildings, and compares the data to a variety of benchmarks, including Commercial Building Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS) averages, Energy Star ratings and modeled energy performance estimates provided with LEED submittals.

Wastewater Treatment Plants: 1 PDH

Package plants are pre-manufactured wastewater treatment facilities typically used to treat flows between 0.01 and 0.25 MGD. This course provides information about three types of package plants, extended aeration, sequencing batch reactor and oxidation ditch systems. General configuration, typical applications for each, advantages and disadvantages, typical performance, and cost are covered.
