PCI eLearning is useful for engineers at all stages of their careers. Professors may require students to take eLearning courses to learn more about specific topics, and it is suggested that novice and mid-level-experienced engineers take in numerical order the T100 courses, and then the T500 and T510 courses. The remaining courses focus on specialized areas. Although more experienced engineers may elect to skip topics in eLearning courses, they can refresh their knowledge by reviewing specific modules and may wish to take the tests to earn PDHs or LUs.
T100 series course is based on Chapters 1 through 9 of PCI Bridge Design Manual, 3rd ed., 2nd release (MNL-133).
T200 series courses are based on the State-of-the-Art Report on Full-Depth Precast Concrete Bridge Deck Panels (SOA-01-1911).
T310 series course is based on MNL-133 Chapter 11: Extending Spans
T450 series course is based on MNL-133 Chapter 10: Bridge Bearings
T710 series course is based on MNL-133 Chapter 18: Load Ratings
T500 and T510 series courses are based on the Bridge Geometry Manual (CB-02-20).
T520 series courses are based on Recommended Practice for Lateral Stability of Precast, Prestressed Concrete Bridge Girders (CB-02-16) and User Manual for Calculating the Lateral Stability of Precast, Prestressed Concrete Bridge Girders (CB-04-20).
T350 series courses are based on the Curved Precast Concrete Bridges State-of-the-Art Report (CB-01-12), Guide Document for the Design of Curved, Spliced Precast Concrete U-Beam Bridges (CB-03-20), and MNL-133 Chapter 12.
Transportation Webinars (By PCI Chapters)
Learn more about precast, prestressed concrete bridge design in a three-session seminar jointly sponsored by the PCI Mid-Atlantic and PCI Northeast Chapters. Led by industry and fabricator experts Reid Castrodale, PhD, PE, FPCI; JP Binard, PE; Greg Gorman, PE; and Mike Culmo, PE, the virtual sessions give DOT professionals, contractors, consulting engineers, and other industry professionals the opportunity to dive deep into a range of precast transportation design and construction topics.
All three recordings of the April 2021 live sessions and their supplementary handouts are available. Get guidance and tips straight from the experts, discover current best practices, experience a virtual plant tour, and view a panel discussion with regional fabricators on a wide range of topics.
