This course provides an in-depth review of the mandatory Louisiana Professional Ethics requirement for licensed Professional Engineers in the State of Louisiana prior to renewing their license. It incorporates numerous definitions and ethics cases of how the State Board maintains and enforces its ethical obligation along with a review of its revised statutes.

The topics covered include an overview of the Louisiana Revised Statutes, Title 37, Chapter 8 (Professional Engineering), and Louisiana Professional Engineering and Land Surveying Board (LAPELS) Disciplinary Ethics Cases.

As part of the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirement beginning in 1999, The LAPELS requirement mandates that each PE license holder meet the CPD requirements for professional development as a condition for license renewal. As addressed within Chapter 31 of the Professional an Occupational Standards, “A minimum of 1 PDH per renewal period must be in the area of professional ethics. Professional ethics concerns the standard of professional conduct and responsibility required of a professional engineer."
