CONTINUING EDUCATION

The State Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors have outlined requirements for continuing education for license renewal for PE’s. For your convenience, NJSPE is offering educational resources that include in-person, electronic, and in-office courses. NJSPE is committed to providing courses in and around the tri-state area that will cater to those with multiple licenses and differing state requirements.

We want to hear from you!
NJSPE is looking for suggestions for educational opportunities to add to our catalogue. If you are interested in partnering with NJSPE for an educational session, please contact the NJSPE office and ask for Joanne Lombardi.

How the Towers Fell, Lessons Learned from the 1993 and 9/11 Attacks

To understand “How the Towers Fell” we first need to examine how and why the WTC Complex and PATH Station were first constructed, the existing “New Jersey Tubes” they replaced, the details of the 1993 WTC bombing damage, the forensic Investigation by ATF & FBI, the recovery and repair effort, and the lessons learned on improving security and emergency response at the WTC complex that was a factor during the 9-11 attack. This will be followed by a description of evacuation of the WTC complex after the first plane hit the towers, and how the Twin Towers and Seven WTC collapsed with a first-hand in-depth description of the site damage.

We will examine the damage to lower Manhattan and the severe economic impact that the tragic event had on the community and will build upon the information presented on the 1993 Bombing and the 9/11 attacks. It will also cover, temporary shoring, flood protection, and site cleanup from the 9- 11 attacks followed by the construction of the Temporary PATH Station, reconstruction, repairs to the PATH tunnels and Exchange Place Station in NJ. It will cover recommended improvements in building codes. It will foster discussion about whether a standard high-rise tower could have survived the 1993 Bombing and why the Twin Towers and 7 World Trade Center all remained stable for different time periods only to collapse later in a manner resembling controlled demolition.

Offering 3 PDH credits for NJ Professional Engineers and PE’s in other states that accept NJSPE accredited programs.

Course Title: Digital Signatures & Seals – Know how to Comply with the soon-to-be Adopted Rules at NJDEP on Electronic Submission of Applications for Watershed and Land Management permits.

Speaker: James J. Purcell, PE, PMP
Accreditation: 1 NJ PDH credits
Presentation to the New Jersey Society of Professional Engineers

Participants will learn the difference between electronic and digital signatures. When digital signatures are appropriate and when they are not. What rules govern the use of digital signatures and options in implementing a digital signature environment.

Course Title: Green Infrastructure (GI):

Types, Benefits and Implementation Strategies
Speaker: Tejal A. Patel, PE, CME, LEED AP
Accreditation: 1 NJ PDH credits
Presentation to the New Jersey Society of Professional Engineers

As more and more communities directly experience the negative impacts of climate change and frequent storms; engineers and municipalities are under increasing pressure to embrace greener and sustainable infrastructure for stormwater management. Green infrastructure refers to a set of integrated strategies to meet stormwater management goals in cost-effective ways as well as achieving multiple benefits by managing runoff with vegetation, soils, and/or reuse.

Course Title: Permeable Pavers – A Green Alternative

Speaker: Eugene Fernandez
Commercial Territory Manager, Unilock New York, Inc.
Accreditation: 1 NJ PDH credits
Presentation to the New Jersey Society of Professional Engineers

This seminar will analyze the goals and criteria for using a permeable pavement system. We will examine design different solutions for challenging site constraint and compare permeable concrete pavers to other traditional storm systems. You will learn how to utilize ASTM sandard C936 for evaluating permeable pavers and learn efficient installation procedures for permeable pavers. This seminar will examine LEED criteria for achieving potential credits for using concrete pavers, such as stormwater quality and quantity controls, solar reflectivity and cycled materials.

Professional Engineering Ethics 101

The learning objective is to expose the seminar participants to various engineering related professional and statutory codes of ethics to indoctrinate ethics awareness and an understanding of ethical standards common to all jurisdictions, including those of the participants, so that the participants understand the boundaries of ethical engineering behavior. 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 difference 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.
