John C. Huang, Ph.D., P.E.
Licensed professionals such as engineers and land surveyors hold a privileged position within society, with a unique responsibility for public health, safety, and welfare. Accordingly, the services provided by professional engineers and land surveyors require honesty, impartiality, fairness, and equity. This course presents an overview of the professional codes of ethics for engineers and land surveyors, discusses their responsibility to society, describes the professional misconducts associated with the design profession, and provides a list of nine steps to ethical engineering decisions. In addition, this course defines three types of conflicts of interest and suggests six rules of thumb to help engineers eliminate or minimize conflicts of interest in their professional practice.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
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 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.
