Hydraulic Design of Sewers - 3 PDH

This course will introduce you to the principles of hydraulic design of sanitary sewers. You will learn how to calculate quantities of wastewater, the approach to design of gravity and depressed sewers, required pumping capacity, hydrogen sulfide gas control, and sewer system features such as manholes, building connections, cleanouts, and pumping stations and equipment. This is an introductory course for engineers and construction professionals looking for the fundamentals that can be the foundation for further learning about design of sewer systems. This course will give civil engineers and others an introduction to the terminology, fundamentals and methodologies for the hydraulic design of sanitary sewer systems.

Overly simplified course, but straight forward in presentation and question resolutions. would recommend for a quick exam.

Thank you again for responding to me on a Sunday.
Thank you for your quick response.  I can take unlimited courses for up to one year?  That means I can apply some of the courses for this year’s  deadline, and take additional courses after that toward my next period deadline!
I already finished about 80 Hours and passed all the quizzes. Highly Appreciated!
