This webinar will review engineering ethics as it applies to our profession. Starting with the 7 Canons of Ethics as defined by the American Society of Civil Engineers, we will then review several areas where licensed individuals commonly trip up with regard to disciplinary issues, finishing with several case studies from my own career. Using these examples, our goal is to help participants better identify difficult circumstances as they approach so that we can avoid ethical dilemmas.
This webinar is specially intended to meet the requirement for professional development hours in engineering ethics as required for license renewal in many states. However, it is the responsibility of the licensee to verify with respective state licensing board if this webinar can be credited towards its continuing education requirements.
