  1. I think it depends on what industry you're working in. I work in HVAC, the couple hundred dollars worth off fees DrD speaks of are paid for in my higher billable rate to clients, as well as covered by my firm. Also, I live/work in Washington, no CEU's required!
  2. What type of AC unit do you have?? Those types of heat exchangers aren't really on the market. Mitsubishi markets one but for their VRF line to take waste heat and use it as a water heating source.
  3. A Fire Extinguisher is a small piece of equipment, essentially a small vessel, that contains a fire extinguishing agent to put out a fire. It is movable and not attached to anything. A Fire Hydrant is a hose outlet that is either connected to the street water system, or a sprinkler system within a building. Interesting point to note: Many people assume your typical Fire Hydrant on the side of the street is where Fire Fighters connect their hoses to and fight the fire. In actuality, the majority of the time the Fire Fighters hook their pump trucks up to the fire hydrant, increase the pressure significantly, and then discharge from the pump truck to the automatic sprinkler system within a building to increase pressure/flow through the sprinklers. This is the case for the majority of newer commercial buildings that are fully sprinkled. Answers to a lot of other fire related questions can be found in the anthology of NFPA standards.
  4. Great point. I went to Ohio University and I found that the majority of the ME classes felt like applied calculus combined with applied physics.
