Within the engineering profession, structural engineers occupy a place of special trust. Errors by structural engineers can have devastating consequences. Ethical behavior by structural engineers is therefore of primer importance.
This online PDH course will have you study two documents that pertain to ethics for structural engineers: the National Council of Structural Engineering Associations (NCSEA) Model Code of Ethics, and the Illinois Board of Structural Engineers Standard of Professional Conduct. While the first is a model code set for adoption by state Structural Engineering Associations, and the second is only mandatory if you are a licensed Structural Engineer in Illinois, both documents are worthwhile studying to learn more about your ethical responsibilities as a structural engineer.
