John C. Huang, Ph.D., PE
Licensed professionals such as engineers and land surveyors are expected to conduct their business in an ethical and professional manner. Each state board of professional engineers and land surveyors also requires their licensees to follow their standards of professional conduct. While these standards vary from state to state, the basic requirements for professional conduct are very similar throughout the United States. In this webinar, we will study the five basic ethical principles and review the standards of professional conduct for engineers and land surveyors. In addition, we will discuss the unprofessional conduct prohibited by the New York Board, and will go over a few case studies to give attendees a better idea on how to handle some of the ethical issues faced by our profession.
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.
*Note to New York licensed PE & LS:
The acceptable continuing education subjects for NY PE/LS include study of law, rules and/or ethics which contribute to the professional practice in engineering and land surveying in the state of New York.
* Note to NY & NJ PE & PLS: This course can be used to satisfy ethics training requirement for engineers licensed in New Jersey (min. 2 PDHs in ethics) and for engineers and surveyors licensed in New York (min. 1 PDH in ethics). But it cannot be used to satisfy Florida's 4-PDH requirement in Florida Board Laws & Rules (You need to take Course R206 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.
