Laws, Rules and Ethics for Engineers, Architects and Land Surveyors (Live Webinar)PE, PLS, RA

John C. Huang, Ph.D., PE

To perform engineering and/or land surveying service, one must get familiar with the Board Laws and Rules pertinent to the professional service. In this webinar, we will review parts of New York Laws pertinent to engineering, architecture, and land surveying practice. In particular, we will study Articles 15 and 15-A of Business Corporation Law, and Articles 12 and 13 of Limited Liability Company Law. We will also review the Code of Ethics published by the National Society of Professional Engineers and presents several case studies related to the ethical decision-making process. 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, 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 and land surveying in the state of New York. In addition, you need a minimum of one hour of training in professional ethics in each triennium. This course will help you satisfy that requirement.

This course overlaps with R402W (8-PDH version). So please attend either R407W 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. For Florida engineers, 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.
