John C. Huang, Ph.D., PE
Besides meeting specific requirements, such as education, experience, and examination, an engineer must get familiar with the board laws and rules in order to practice engineering properly in any state. This course provides a review of the New York Board Laws and Rules contained in Article 145 - Education Law, Part 29 Unprofessional Conduct - Rules of the Board of Regents, and Part 68 Engineering and Land Surveying - Commissioner's Regulations. In addition, brief case summaries are presented for recent violations and the disciplinary actions taken by the Board. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
*Note to New York licensed PE & LS:
The acceptable continuing education subjects for NY PE/LS include the study of law, rules and/or ethics which contribute to the professional practice in engineering and land surveying. In addition, you need a minimum of one-hour training in professional ethics in each triennium. This course will help you satisfy that requirement.
* Note: This course cannot be used to satisfy other states’ PDH requirement in their Board Laws & Rules.
NY PE & PLS: You must choose courses that are technical in nature or related to matters of laws and ethics contributing to the health and welfare of the public. NY Board does not accept courses related to office management, risk management, leadership, marketing, accounting, financial planning, real estate, and basic CAD. Specific course topics that are on the borderline and are not acceptable by the NY Board have been noted under the course description on our website.
