Pennsylvania-Chemical Engineering Package: 24 PDH


Eight Chemical Engineering courses plus Pennsylvania Rules, Regulations & Ethics course that will earn 24 PDH guaranteed to be accepted by the Pennsylvania State Board of Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors, and GeologistsInstructor: Raymond Bosek, PE

Pennsylvania – Rules, Regulations and Ethics for Professional Engineers: 3 PDH

In this course the student will study the Pennsylvania State Board of Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors, and Geologists Statutes & Regulations, including Professional Engineering Ethics

Fundamentals of Metals: 5 PDH

The course provides an understanding of the structure and properties of metals, stress mechanisms, failure modes and the characteristics determine their usefulness for a specific application. Often, materials are subject to variable forces (loads). The engineer calculates these forces to establish the service that can be expected and material scientists experiment to determine how materials deform (elongate, compress, and twist) or break as a function of applied load, time, temperature, and other conditions.

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.

Distressed Pavements Identification: 3 PDH

This course enables the student to understand, evaluate, and determine which type of pavement distress is taking place on roadways and paved surfaces. The student will learn how to identify different types of pavement distresses and , severity levels, means to measure the distresses and methods to document.

Deterioration of Concrete: 2 PDH

This course is most relevant to engineers wishing to attain knowledge on the most common causes of problems in concrete. The course also provides a brief description of the basic mechanism of each common problem, a description of the typical symptoms that would be observed during a visual inspection, and suggests preventative methods or techniques to prevent further damage.

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.

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.

Chemical Deicers & Concrete Pavement: Impacts & Mitigation: 1 PDH

In this course the student will understand the distresses caused to concrete by chemical deicers and methods used to minimize this distress.
