In this course we discuss the term “ethics” and what it means in the context of any profession. Then we apply it to some of the important ways in which the word ethics applies to surveyors and the practice of professional surveying. We also compare and contrast ethical practice with adherence to rules and regulations of a licensing board. The course also addresses some ways in which you can assess your behavior to compare with what the public and the profession may expect for ethical practice. In practice, this course emphasizes how to interact with your clients and others in a “right” manner and to do the job in the “right” way.


Objective 1
Apply the concepts of ethical practice to situation in the practice of surveying
Objective 2
Understand the difference between licensing board rules and regulations and what ethical practice means: where to they overlap, where are they different?
Objective 3
Develop your ability to evaluate your own behavior to see if it fits with ethical practices.
