Change in Requirements for Nebraska Architects

Architects licensed in Nebraska must  have 24 hours in continuing education by December 31 biennially based on the licensee’s last name.

Of the 24 hours, at least 16 hours must be HSW-related and 1 hour must be in professional ethics.

Renewal occurs biennially based on last name.  A-K are due by December 31 in odd years and L-Z are due by December 31 in even years.

The Nebraska Board of Engineers and Architects will now allow all hours to be taken in online coursework if the provider is an approved International Association for Continuing Education & Training (IACET) Accredited Provider.  RedVector.com, LLC is approved as an IACET Accredited Provider.

The courses offered by RedVector for this profession have been reviewed to meet technical requirements.  It is the licensee’s responsibility to verify that the course material meets their specific scope of practice and criteria required by the Board.

Previously, only 25% of CE could be taken from a non-IACET online provider. There was no ethics requirement for this license.

Note: The Nebraska rules and regulations state that the licensee cannot complete continuing education courses that enhances an engineer’s knowledge to run his/her business, increase profitability or guide him/her contractually to benefit the practice. We have removed those courses from the library.

New Course: Developing 3D Engineered Construction Models

RedVector has released a new advanced-level course on Developing 3D Engineered Construction Models! This course was recorded in our Tampa studio and is presented by Mr. Alfredo Cely. Winner of the Young Engineer of the Year Award in 2014, Mr. Cely is a Civil Engineer that has managed Transportation, Land Development, Water Resources and Aviation projects from planning to construction for the past 12 years. He is a licensed Civil Engineer in Florida, Texas and Ecuador.

Developing 3D Engineered Construction Models

The benefits of applying 3D engineered models provides a great economic incentive, improves construction crew safety, reduces craftsmanship errors, and improves the efficiency of construction crews. This interactive online course teaches Contractors, Engineers, Architects and Planners about the core principles for developing 3D engineered models that can be applied by the construction industry through Automated Machine Guidance (AMG).

Newly Reformatted Safety Courses

RedVector is proud to announce that some of our most popular safety courses are now mobile ready.

Lockout/Tagout

Accidents can happen anytime and anywhere and can result in equipment damage, personal injury, or even death. A potential, but preventable, cause of accidents is failing to properly isolate equipment before servicing or maintaining it. Ensuring that equipment is safe to work on is critical as uncontrolled hazardous energy cause unexpected startups or releases of stored energy that can be hazardous to workers.

In this interactive online course, we will discuss hazardous energy. We will review OSHA lockout/tagout standards and procedures, and describe employee training and inspections necessary for an energy control program.

Basic Electrical Safety
A good understanding of electrical safety can help prevent accidents on the job. Workers must be aware of electrical hazards and be familiar with the protective devices in electrical systems, as well as the safety practices that help prevent injuries and equipment damage.

In this interactive online course, you will learn to identify the basic aspects of working safely, such as identifying electrical parts, determining nominal voltages, and understanding minimum safe clearance distances. You will also learn the actions to take if electrical shock or another injury occurs.

Electrical Safety
Safety is especially important for anyone who works around electricity. Even though electricity cannot be seen, it can be extremely hazardous unless the proper precautions are taken.

This interactive online course covers basic electrical concepts, such as electrical qualities of current, voltage, and resistance. Hazards associated with electricity, including electrical shock will be discussed, as well as the actions workers can take to protect themselves from those hazards.

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.
