This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:
You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a 20 question multiple-choice quiz. The quiz can be retaken unlimited times until a passing grade of 70% or better is earned. This course satisfies four (4) hours of professional development (PDH).
In this course the student will study the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs Statutes & Regulations, including Professional Engineering Ethics.
In this course the student will understand the properties and mechanics of soils and accurately calculate the stresses and deformations of soil masses.
In this course the student will understand the essentials of subsurface explorations for roadways with a comprehensive overview including site preparation, sampling methods, types of testing and methods, as well as standard guidelines and recommendations.
In this course the student will understand the engineering characteristics of soils and rocks and to how to properly identify and classify to develop a subsurface profile for site evaluations.
In this course the student will understand the intricate details of laboratory testing of subsurface soils and rocks in order to obtain values of their engineering properties necessary for design.
In this course the student will understand the design of slope stability in embankments and structures and how to recognize, analyze, and solve slope instability issues encountered.
In this course the student will understand roadway approach embankment design and construction and methods to mitigate deformations typically seen in these structure, including the infamous “bump” encountered at the approach to structure interface.
In this course the student will study the Nevada State Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors Statutes and Codes, including Professional Engineering Ethics.
