John C. Huang, Ph.D., PE
Engineering and surveying professions are considered to be of vital importance to the safety, health and welfare of the public. In order to serve the public effectively and ensure the well-being of the society, all licensees must not only possess and maintain a high level of technical expertise and competence, but also perform under the standard of professional conduct with adherence to the highest ethical principles. In this webinar, we will review the ethical principles in life and the professions, discuss the difference between laws and ethics, and study the approaches that can be used to improve or modify a person's set of ethics. In addition, we will examine the classical moral theories and the Code of Ethics in our profession.
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), New York (min. 1 PDH in ethics) and many other states.
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.
