April 11th: Ethics 101

For those of you registered in the State of Maryland, be sure to take advantage of this session. It will help you fulfill the 1 PDH requirement on ethics. For those of you registered in the Commonwealth of Virginia and/or the District of Columbia, this session also helps you add 1 PDH toward your license renewal.

And if none of the above scenarios applies, discover how to assess if situations that make you queasy have ethical implications. Ethics is a vital topic; it is concerned with how you evaluate choices to determine which is good or evil, right or wrong, desirable or undesirable. Ethics is a human necessity.

During this session, you will:

  • Learn about the three foundation principles of ethics
  • Relate these principles to those in the ASCE Code of Ethics
  • Review the application of these principles in ethical cases, both professional and personal
