John C. Huang, Ph.D., PE
To perform engineering and/or land surveying service in the state of New York, one must get familiar with the Board Laws and Rules pertinent to the professional service. Parts of New York Laws covered in this course are Articles 15 and 15-A of Business Corporation Law, Articles 12 and 13 of Limited Liability Company Law, and Article 145 of Education Law. Part 29 Unprofessional Conduct - Rules of the Board of Regents and Part 68 Engineering and Land Surveying - Commissioner's Regulations are also included along with some of the frequently asked questions. 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. All quiz questions are reviewed during the webinar. You are guaranteed to pass this quiz.
*Note to New York licensed PE, LS, and RA:
The acceptable continuing education subjects for NY PE/LS/RA include the study of law, rules and/or ethics which contribute to the professional practice in engineering, architecture, and land surveying in the state of New York. In addition, you need a minimum of one-hour training in professional ethics in each triennium. This course will help you satisfy that requirement.
This course overlaps with R401W (4-PDH version). So please attend either R401W or R402W, but not both in the same renewal cycle.
* Note: This course cannot be used to satisfy Florida’s 1-PDH requirement in Florida Board Laws & Rules. (You need to take Course R209 for that purpose).
Note to Webinar Attendees:
Our live webinars (web seminars) are considered as "Courses of Learning" (live courses) by the New York State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying and as "Timed & Monitored Courses" by the Ohio State Board for Professional Engineers and Surveyors. Unlike the traditional seminars held in a classroom setting, our webinars deliver live instruction to your home or office. You will be able to interact directly with our instructor during a webinar through audio channel or chat box. However, you must attend the webinar at a scheduled date and time. We will verify your attendance through our online webinar platform. The certificate of completion will not be issued unless you attend the webinar and pass a quiz (all quiz questions will be reviewed during the webinar). Thank you for your cooperation.
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.
