(Revised) General review of the site to compare content with course taught at
the undergraduate level.

Technical Remarks:

This isn't a turnkey site. However it is a very thorough course outline.
Additional materials are necessary to gnerate a quality course but this is a
very good roadmap.

Material can be combined with a study of NFPA 101 or Building Codes
