Laws, Rules, and Ethics Presentation for FL Engineers


TOPIC: Laws, Rules, and Ethics Presentation for FL Engineers

This 2 hour course satisfies the 1 hour Laws and Rules requirement, as well as the 1 hour Ethics requirement. Regarding laws and rules, attendees should leave the presentation with a firm grasp of the requirements of Chapter 455, F.S., Rule 61G15, F.A.C., and the Florida Practice Act, Chapter 471, F.S. The disciplinary process, guidelines, and penalties found within these statutes and rules will also be covered. Finally, attendees will be brought up to date with the most recent law and rule changes, as well as be provided with an application of the provisions of Chapter 471, F.S., to individual cases and unlicensed practice cases during the immediately preceding biennium. Regarding Ethics, Attendees should leave the presentation with a firm grasp of the definition and explanation of “misconduct” in Rule 61G15, F.A.C., as well as exposure to codes of conduct from different engineering societies. Attendees will also leave with a greater understanding of common ethical issues engineers face, what constitutes “plan-stamping,” how to avoid this ethical issue, and the procedures for the adoption of another engineer’s work. Finally, attendees will be exposed to a discussion of several cases involving unethical behavior, as well as the application of the codes of conduct and Florida BOPE misconduct rules to several hypothetical scenarios.
