Ethics, Professional and Management Seminars & Workshops

All of our seminars and workshops are designed to provide at least the annual minimum 1-PDH “ethics requirement” under the Continuing Education Program for Texas Licensed Professional Engineers. They also satisfy the requirements of many other licensing bodies. We issue certificates of participation to students upon completion of each program.

We update our two-hour Engineering Ethics seminars annually, to provide current information on the issues affecting engineers in Texas. These seminars are offered publicly several times per year in Houston and Dallas, and upon demand in other cities. Our other programs, including the In Search of Professional Excellence Workshop, (available as either a 4-hour or a 3-hour program) and Communication Skills and Ethics, are available for in-house courses. We can also provide customized programs to meet specific requirements.
