Ethics for Professionals (1 hour)
The intent of this course is to reinforce your ethical principles and ethical obligations. This course is intended for professionals that need to meet their Continuing Education requirements for Ethics. The course uses the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) Code of Ethics for Engineers to refresh and reinforce the obligations of engineers. The course will review the Fundamental Canons and the Rules of Practice found within this code. It will also discuss what is expected of a Professional Engineer in complying with the Code in practice. Have you read the NSPE Code of Ethics? If not, this is for you. This course provides the link to the NSPE Code of Ethics website for reference now and in your daily practice.
An Introduction to Due Diligence Reports for Development Projects (4 hours)
This course offers professionals an introduction to conducting a Due Diligence Report for Development Projects, covering the process from initial client meeting to field investigation and regulatory research, providing tips, examples, and a sample checklist to understand and manage professional liabilities and risks associated with such reports.
Vector Fundamentals (2 hours)
movement or a force carried from point A to point B. A vector has properties of both magnitude and direction. A scalar only has the property of magnitude. A scalar is a quantity, like mass (14 kg), temperature (25°C), or electric field intensity (40 N/C) that only has magnitude and no direction. On the other hand, a vector has both magnitude and direction. Physical quantities that have magnitude and direction can be represented by the length and direction of an arrow.
Railroad Curves Simplified (4 hours) (Includes FREE software)
This course will teach the physics of centrifugal force and the mathematics used by railroad engineers to select a cant angle and spiral transition curve that provides a comfortable ride and minimizes wear on rails and wheels. “Rail-Curve” is the FREE spreadsheet software that comes with the course and takes care of all the number crunching so that we can concentrate on the principles of railroad curve design and evaluation.
There is an eye-opening section on “Vactrain” (Vacuum Tube Train) concepts that promise train speeds of 760 mph (1,200 kph) for Elon Musk’s Hyperloop to 4,000 mph (6,437 kph) for Nic Garzilli’s Hyper Chariot.
The software runs on Microsoft Excel®97 or later. It is available for download after you purchase the course and it is yours to keep for the rest of your engineering career.
What Every Engineer Should Know About Endangered Species (4 hours)
This continuing education course will help students understand the important link between the Endangered Species Act and its impact on land development projects. Having an understanding of the Endangered Species Act is paramount for planners in the early stages of a land development project because it can mitigate high-cost project hindrances during the initial stages.
This course aims to offer fundamental insights into endangered species and their impact on land development. It covers ways engineers can access initial project-specific data related to this subject.
