Professional Ethics for the Land Surveyor

NY CE: 1.0 LS/PE

This course covers not only the history of ethics, but gives guidance on all professional issues dealing with responsibility and standard of care.  It provides answers to everyday problems that arise in the day to day functioning of all land surveyors. The course's coverage of ethics as it relates to those in the field and the real-life examples of ethical issues are extensively covered. In addition, the course will study a case where the surveyors and engineering parties involved did a proactive approach to a developing ethics issue: RaCON, Inc. v. Tuscaloosa County, Burk-Kleinpeter, Inc.  The course will also review the rules of the NY Board of Regents.
