Ethical Issue: Deciding if Something is a Gift or a Bribe (LE1-007)
The online engineering PDH course addresses two aspects of metals. The first part of this course deals with the basic structures of metals and how those structures are affected by various processes. In addition, it contains information on the various imperfections and defects that the metal may sustain and how they affect the metal. The second part contains information on metal properties which are considered when selecting material for engineering design purposes. Each of these properties contains a discussion on how the property is affected and the metal's application.
This 7 PDH online course is applicable to structural and mechanical engineers, construction and design personnel, technical staff and facility operators who are interested in gaining a better understanding of the structures and properties of metals.
- Understanding bonding
- Learning about common lattice types
- Understanding grain structure and boundary
- Learning about polymorphism and alloys

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Modules 1 and 2, "Structures and Property of Metals" of the Department of Energy Publication DOE-HDBK-1017/1-93, "Material Science".
This online engineering PDH course presents the technologies, techniques, advantages and limitations, equipment, typical coating types involved, and safety considerations for each type of application method.
The choice of an application method depends on the type of coating to be applied, the type and size of surface to be coated, and governing environmental regulations. There are various methods of coating application, including brush application, roller application, conventional spray, high volume-low pressure spray, airless spray, plural component spray, and electrostatic spray.
Approximately 85 percent of all premature coating failures are a result of poor surface preparation, inadequate mixing, thinning, and/or poor coating application. Onsite quality control inspection during surface preparation and coating application procedures can help prevent failures of these types. Proper inspection techniques must be combined with knowledgeable instrument use, good common sense, and thorough documentation of work activities and inspection checkpoints to help ensure specification compliance. The amount of inspection and the specific inspection checkpoints will vary with the type and size of the coating project. This course presents eleven quality control inspection procedures as follows:
- Pre-surface preparation inspection
- Ambient conditions
- Compressed air cleanliness
- Surface profile
- Surface cleanliness
- Paint storage, mixing, and thinning procedures
- Application techniques
- Wet and dry coating thickness
- Pinhole detection
This 3 PDH online course is applicable to engineers, design and construction personnel, and other technical professionals who are interested in gaining a better understanding of coating application and inspection.

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapters 8 and 9 of the “Painting: New Construction and Maintenance” engineering manual, published by the United States Army of Corps of Engineers (USACE), Publication Number EM 1110-2-3400.
This online engineering PDH course provides information regarding the identification and treatment of corrosive attack on aircraft structures and engine materials.
Corrosion is the electrochemical deterioration of a metal because of its chemical reaction with a surrounding environment. While the aerospace industry is continuously developing new and better materials, progress is offset partly by a more aggressive operational environment and by the complexity of the corrosion phenomenon, which can take many different forms. The resistance of aircraft materials to corrosion can drastically change with only a small environmental change.
This 9 PDH online course is applicable to material, industrial and mechanical engineers, as well as aircraft operators, maintenance and repair personnel in addition to all others seeking a better understanding of the basics of corrosion in aircrafts.
- Familiarizing with the factors that cause corrosion
- Understanding the effects of corrosion
- Knowing which areas are prone to corrosion and the methods of prevention
- Learning the requirements for inspecting aircraft
- Learning corrosion removal techniques
This online engineering PDH course will establish, through the presentation of many examples, the principles of distinguishing between a gift and a bribe.
The federal government has formulated detailed rules covering gifts given to executive-branch employees in many situations. The rules are published in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and are illustrated through many examples. Even though the examples are intended for government employees (many of whom are engineers), they also apply to private-sector engineers in similar situations. This course presents selected CFR examples that furnish guidance on the ethics of gift giving in situations that are especially relevant to engineers.
This 1 PDH online course is intended for engineers seeking guidance on distinguishing between ethical gift-giving and bribery.
- Familiarizing with definitions of a bribe and a gift
- Knowing the bribe status of a gift based on a personal relationship
- Understanding the conditions under which gifts to spouses are acceptable
- Knowing the need to avoid even the appearance of a gift being a bribe
- Recognizing when gifts involving free attendance at meetings and conferences are acceptable
- Understanding the importance of the cumulative effect of receiving even small gifts on a periodic basis
- Learning the importance of gifts received when on assignment rather than outside of work
