COURSE TITLE: Code of Ethics for Engineers
COURSE NO: LE1-001
Code of Ethics for Engineers
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course introduces engineers to the National Society of Professional Engineers Code of Ethics. The Code provides ethical guidance to engineers in their various and often simultaneously held roles as 1) guardians of public health, safety, and welfare 2) employees, 3) employers, and 4) providers of technical service to clients.

 

Engineers practicing their profession encounter not only technical issues but also ethical issues. Sometimes the latter issues are easy to resolve: applying everyday, common-sense notions of honesty, openness, responsibility, and lawfulness is sufficient to guide the engineer to the appropriate decision. At other times, however, matters are more complicated. In particular, knowing what to do when two or more duties or obligations conflict can be difficult. For example, an engineer's duty to his client or employer may conflict with the engineer's duty to the general public. Codes of ethics have been formulated to help engineers address these conflicts.

 

This 1 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.

COURSE TITLE: Electrical Safety
COURSE NO: E06-005
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Electrical Safety
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the hazards of electrical work and basic approaches to working safely.

 

Whenever working with power tools or on electrical circuits, there is a risk of electrical hazards, especially electrical shock. Anyone can be exposed to these hazards at home or at work. Workers are exposed to more hazards because job sites can be cluttered with tools and materials, fast-paced, and open to the weather. Risk is also higher at work because many jobs involve electric power tools.

 

Electrical trades workers must pay special attention to electrical hazards because they work on electrical circuits. Coming in contact with an electrical voltage can cause current to flow through the body, resulting in electrical shock and burns. Serious injury or even death may occur. As a source of energy, electricity is used without much thought about the hazards it can cause. Because electricity is a familiar part of our lives, it often is not treated with enough caution. As a result, an average of one worker is electrocuted on the job every day of every year! 

 

This 6 PDH online course is applicable to electrical and mechanical engineers, electricians, plant operators, construction personnel and others seeking an understanding of the basics of electrical system safety.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the dangers of electricity
  • Understanding the dangers of electric shocks
  • Familiarizing with the burns caused by electricity
  • Learning how to recognize, evaluate, and control hazards
  • Knowing how to work safely
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the document “Electrical Safety: Safety and Health for Electrical Trades” publication by the Department of Health and Human Services of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) / National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).

COURSE TITLE: Ethics Guidelines for Professional Conduct
COURSE NO: LE2-002
Ethics Guidelines for Professional Conduct
Note: New JerseyNew York, Ohio and Pennsylvania Professional Engineers: This course does not qualify for PDH credit by your State Licensing Board. For complete information, please visit the websites of the NJNYOH and PA State Licensing Boards.
Course Highlights

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.
