Ethics Guidelines for Professional Conduct
This online engineering PDH course presents ethics guidelines for engineers. The guidelines have been developed for everyday use by engineers as they encounter common situations in their jobs. The course is based on an ASCE document adapted from a standards-of-business-conduct document developed by a private company. Thus the course is useful not only to civil engineers but also to engineers in other fields.
This 2 PDH online course is intended for all engineers who are interested in gaining a better understanding about how to protect and respect their engineering profession in the utmost manner.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
Understanding precise definitions of key terms such as "conflict of interest", "whistleblowing" and "confidential and proprietary information"
Understanding the fifteen guidelines for professional conduct, including for example relations to clients, obligations to the public, outside employment, bribes and kickbacks, gifts, and harassment
Understanding the ethical decision-making process based on 1) policies (of the employer or other relevant organization), 2) the law, 3) universally recognized values, and 4) the engineer's personal values
In this online engineering PDH course, you need to review the course document "Ethics Guidelines for Professional Conduct" published by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) on January 2008. This course document is reproduced by permission of the ASCE (www.asce.org), and may be downloaded from the ASCE's website by clicking on Ethics Guidelines for Professional Conduct, or by clicking on the link below.
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of fifteen (15) questions to earn 2 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on this ASCE publication.
Upon successful completion of the quiz, print your Certificate of Completion instantly. (Note: if you are paying by check or money order, you will be able to print it after we receive your payment.)
