Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) has become a leading environmental assessment technique used by consumers, industry, and government. LCA is increasingly required by firms that wish to green their supply chain; LCA is part of the LEED “green building” certification, and life cycle results are now required by Federal Renewable Fuels Legislation through the Revised Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS2). You will learn how LCAs are performed and how to interpret the results of such studies.
This online asynchronous course has been produced by the Center for Industrial Research and Service (CIRAS) and features presentations by Dr. David Grewell of Iowa State University. You will be introduced to the various methods of plastics welding in a way that will help you make decisions about its application in your workplace. This course is particularly targeted to manufacturers including engineers, operators, and technicians, and engineering managers.
The United States Road Assessment Program (usRAP) offers highway engineers, safety planners, and transportation officials unique and user-friendly tools for evaluating the safety of their road networks and directing limited resources for improvements to the areas where they will have the most impact. The online training series consists of two-course: usRAP Data-Driven Safety Analysis and Planning and usRAP Data Coding: A Complete Course on Data Preparation.
This online course is a collaboration between Iowa State University ELO, Auburn University, and International Erosion Control Association (IECA). This course is a comprehensive overview of the rules and regulations that govern construction projects regarding stormwater pollution prevention, erosion and sediment processes, design of control practices, and technology applications for the construction industry. The course is intended for participants that are generally familiar with erosion and sediment control concepts who want to increase their knowledge level within the construction industry to advance their professional careers. Six modules make up the entire course, which includes review questions at the conclusion of each module intended to reinforce the presented material.
The Construction Engineering Certificate Program is being offered through The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). All courses include asynchronous online video lectures to convey the fundamental concepts and demonstrate example calculations. You will work to solve problems, evaluate case studies, and perform practical exercises. There will be synchronous online interactive periods with the instructor supplemented with an opportunity for unscheduled interactions via email and/or by making an appointment for a phone call. All courses include a final exam to demonstrate comprehension level.
In the MTM-1 Base course, you will be introduced to a new way of thinking and a more detailed look at how you can optimize manual activities. MTM takes a micro-level approach to reducing work time and cost. Anyone involved in Industrial Engineering, Lean Activities, or those who have a demonstrated need to develop optimal work measurement standards and methods in any Production Environment can take this online course. Engineering-LAS Online Learning has partnered with MTM Productivity Services Corporation to adapt the three-day course into an online course to provide students with the prerequisite understanding to continue on to others.
Anyone involved in Industrial Engineering, Lean Activities, or those who have a demonstrated need to develop optimal work measurement standards and methods in a Batch Production Environment can take this online course to receive online training for MTM-UAS (Methods-Time Measurement Universal Analyzing System) Certification. Engineering-LAS Online Learning has partnered with MTM Productivity Services Corporation to adapt the five-day course into an online course to provide students with the tools necessary to take the MTM-UAS Certification exam, receive MTM- UAS Certificate of Completion and optional BlueCard certification. This course discusses principles of MTM-UAS construction, time elements and simultaneous motions of MTM-UAS, and methods improvements in MTM-UAS. The certification will be issued by MTM Association for Standards and Research.
Engineering-LAS Online Learning has partnered with MTM Productivity Services Corporation to adapt the ten-day course into an online course to provide students with the tools necessary to take the MTM-1 Certification exam, receive an MTM-1 Certificate of Completion, and optional BlueCard® certification. This course discusses principles of MTM-1 construction, time elements and simultaneous motions of MTM-1, and methods improvements in MTM-1. The certification will be issued by MTM Association for Standards and Research.
