New Industrial Wastewater Treatment Course

RedVector is excited to announce a mobile-ready course authored by Mark Reinsel, Ph.D. Dr. Reinsel is president of an independent consulting firm specializing in treatment evaluation, testing and design for industrial wastewater, stormwater and drinking water. He has over 30 years of experience in consulting, industry and academia.

Essentials of Industrial Wastewater Treatment

Wastewater Course

High-quality fresh water is an increasingly rare and valuable commodity. The Earth contains a finite supply of water and the small fraction which is useable for drinking and other valuable uses will continue to come under increasing pressure. With a worldwide focus on water quality and management, the fate of wastewater generated by industry is more important than ever. Treating water for discharge or reuse, and minimizing the amount of water to be treated, are important concepts for the engineering, science or other professional to understand.

This interactive online course will focus on considerations and technologies for treating industrial wastewater. Treatment of municipal and domestic wastewater, such as at publicly owned treatment works (POTWs), will be discussed briefly.

New Courses for Architects, Structural and Water Engineers, LEED Practitioners

RedVector has released courses for Architects, Structural & Water Engineers and LEED Practitioners.

Building Age Friendly Cities

Baby boomers are aging. This three-hour interactive course examines the connection between elderly population’s specific needs and the design of their cities, with inclusion of requirements for disabled elderly through the intent of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This course will also cover the most common redesign elements for infrastructure, and the development patterns that cities are adapting that design professionals should consider to meet the needs of the disabled elderly.

Wood Design Using the 2012 Wood Frame Construction Manual

Knowing the correct wind speed for the area in which you are building a wood frame structure is crucial to the safety of the building’s inhabitants. This interactive online course will describe how to use the 2012 version of the American Wood Council’s Wood Frame Construction Manual (WFCM). This version incorporates the use of wind speed maps from ASCE 7-10 and the design of both vertical and lateral load paths using the WFCM. There are many nuances to the correct use of this manual and many of these will be covered to help the practitioner correctly use this document that is referenced in the International Building and Residential Codes.

Designing Using LRFD Principles

What is LRFD? LRFD (Load and Resistance Factor Design) principles are used in structural engineering applications so structural reliability is more consistent across various materials and loading conditions. This concept becomes particularly important in performance-based design scenarios when the structural engineering solutions are required to address how the structure is used and expected to perform – and not prescriptive building codes. This interactive, online course will review load factors, resistance factors, and reliability theory. We will also discuss the four material types (wood, steel, concrete, and masonry), looking at how each of these material standards deal with LRFD design.

Structural Design Philosophies ASD & LRFD

Structural engineering design philosophy is based on determining the demand on an element and designing that element with the capacity to withstand that demand. There are two basic approaches to developing the demand; LRFD (Load Resistance Factored Design) and ASD (Allowable Stress Design). Historically, design of different materials (wood, steel, concrete and masonry) has used either ASD or LRFD. This interactive, online course will look at the origins of the two approaches, discuss traditional uses of ASD and LRFD and their safety implications. We will also investigate the differing load combinations as defined in the International Building Code®. Understanding these approaches is an essential element of a life safe design process.

LEED v4 for Interior Design + Construction

Green buildings, when operated as intended, improve working environments, promote higher productivity, reduce energy and resource costs, and prevent system failures. This interactive course discusses the importance of a facility that has been designed and built as not only “green” with energy efficiency and water consumption technologies but also allows us to breathe easy, give us views of nature and daylight, and makes us healthier. LEED for Interior Design and Construction (LEED ID+C) enables project teams who may not have control over whole building operations to develop indoor spaces that are more comfortable for users and more mindful of our resources.

New Courses: International Fire Code Changes and Intro to Sustainable Water Systems

RedVector has released two new courses which comprise four hours of new mobile-ready content!

2015 International Fire Code®: Significant Changes

Maintaining the life safety of building occupants, the protection of emergency responders, and limiting the damage to a building and its contents is of paramount importance. The purpose of the 2015 International Fire Code®: Significant Changes course is to familiarize fire officials, building officials, plans examiners, fire inspectors, design professionals and others with many of the important changes in the 2015 International Fire Code (IFC®). This interactive, online course is designed to assist code users in identifying the specific code changes that have occurred and in understanding the reasons behind the changes. It is also a valuable resource for jurisdictions in their code adoption process.


This course was developed in partnership with the International Code Council®.

Green Design: Introduction to Sustainable Water Systems (Based on LEED v4)

The goal of this online interactive course is to introduce you to a perspective on development and design practices that help professionals support communities in managing and sustaining use of local water resources. It is often said when discussing sustainable practices that people need to think globally and act locally. This is especially true when dealing with water resources. Unlike any other resource, water cycles through the earth’s environments at global and continental scales, but each step of that journey serves as a highly valued local resource. This course will discuss a sustainable approach to water use and management in buildings, sites, and campuses. It systematically introduces key concepts that help practitioners understand the larger watershed and community water systems that local development practices impact, and the cultural, social, economic, and health benefits communities derive from earth’s water systems. This course also introduces the consequences of conflicts between current development practices and these water systems and emerging developments practices that work better with, and have a lower-impact on, watershed systems. Brief overviews of LEED-BD+C v4.0 credits that contribute to improved water quality, reduced water use, management of local stormwater and groundwater resources are included to help orient professionals to practices they may wish to learn more about. Lastly, the author provides some examples of how strategies introduced in the lesson can contribute to and express the natural, cultural, social, and aesthetic character of places.

DC Power in Data Center.png

DC Power in the Data Center

Alternating Current (AC) power has been the default for data centers due to many factors, such as equipment availability and familiarity. As companies and agencies push for better energy efficiency, Direct Current (DC) power may become a more viable choice for energy, reliability, and availability of a data center. This course walks through a typical data center power chain then compares using DC power with discussion on five of the most typical DC power voltages in use today

Cogeneration Systems Essentials

Would you know enough about cogeneration to advise a client? Systems that generate both heat and electricity, called cogeneration or combined heat and power (CHP) systems, aim to reduce costs and emissions by providing two things at once. Usable heat is produced when a cogeneration system generates power, providing efficiency gains of nearly twice that of utility power. In this interactive online course we’ll discuss the simultaneous goals of providing heat and power, characteristics of turbines and engines in use, and other details such as economics and air emissions limits.
