On April 29, NJSPE will be holding a full-day of engineering continuing education at The Palace at Somerset Park. Each course is designed to keep you up-to-date on the latest information all professional engineers need to know and provide you credits to maintain your license. All 10 credits are eligible for New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania engineers. Here are the courses you will take:
- Professional Engineering Ethics 101: The program is broken into several parts. Introduction to common statutory and regulatory ethics rules; review of the National Society of Professional Engineers Code of Ethics with examples of common ethics rules, illustrative case studies to consider, with emphasis on the similarities and differences between governmental and professional society sanctions; practical reasons for ethical practice, how unethical practice can present professional liability, legal, licensure, moral and public health, safety and welfare issues. Presented by Larry Powers, Esq.
- Resilient coastal design in an uncertain future – demonstrated by recent catastrophic storm emergency reconstructions & Bridging the Gap between Utilities and the Transportation Project: Discussions will include accessing damaged roadway infrastructure and gathering survey and design data in an area devastated by a natural disaster; engineering solutions to provide sustainable pavement and drainage infrastructure (protection from future catastrophic storm events); innovative utility conflict coordination methods (well over 1000 conflict locations), private property owner and agency coordination, along with several design, construction, and Project Management tools and techniques developed for this massive undertaking. Presented by Drew Markewicz, PE, PMP.
- Stormwater Management Fundamentals: This course will review the fundamental aspects of Stormwater Management that can be defined as a System of Strategies and Measures to Manage the Creation, Collection, Conveyance, Storage, Treatment, Use, and Discharge of Stormwater Runoff to Prevent the Adverse Impacts of Land Disturbance, Development, and Redevelopment. Areas covered will touch on Runoff Drainage and Conveyance, Flood and Erosion Control, Nonpoint Source Pollution Control, Watershed Planning and Design, Groundwater Recharge, Structural and Nonstructural Strategies and Measures.
- Hydrograph Routings Accreditation: Important aspects of Routings to be utilized in the Development of Hydrographs will be covered in this course. Routing can be defined as a Mathematical Procedure for Predicting the Change in Magnitude, Speed, and Shape of a Hydrograph as a Function of Time. This presentation will cover Hydrologic and Hydraulic Routing Methods, Level Pool Routings, Storage Indication Calculations, Stage Storage and Stage Discharge Curves and Methods of Estimating Storage Volumes. Also included is a review of Computer Programs that may be Utilized in Performing these Calculations. Presented by Joseph J. Skupien, P.E., P.P.
