John C. Huang, Ph.D., PE
In order to safeguard the life, health, property, and welfare of the public and to maintain the integrity and high standards of skills and practice, each licensed profession usually adopts a Code of Ethics or Professional Conduct, which provides a basic guide for professional conduct and imposes duties on the licensed professionals, with respect to society, employers, clients, colleagues, the profession, and himself/herself. A violation of the Code in the practice of a profession constitutes unprofessional conduct and is considered grounds for disciplinary action by a licensing board/professional association against the licensee/member. In this course, we will discuss the basic concepts and terminology related to ethics, and review the Code of Ethics adopted by engineering societies such as the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
* Note: This course can be used to satisfy ethics training requirement for engineers licensed in New Jersey (min. 2 PDHs in ethics) and New York (min. 1 PDH in ethics).
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.
