CE-186 Ethics for Practicing Engineers (Part #1)
This seminar will review ethical obligations of licensees as outlined by the New York State Department of Education and licensure. Examples will be given from recent actions by the department against individuals along with analysis of where the licensee went wrong, and what could have been done to lessen risk and mitigate failings. Differentiations between mis-practice, malpractice and non-freelance will be discussed as well as methods to avoid each. A review of administrative actions against licensees will be undertaken so that participants will know how to respond to achieve the best results. A discussion of record keeping and proper practices will also afford participants an opportunity to improve procedures and hopefully better respond to inquiry if any.

EE-110 Principles of Electrical Wiring & Protection (N.E.C. Chapter #2)
Since its adoption in 1897, the National Electrical Code (NEC) is the most widely accepted set of electrical safety requirements in both the United States and the world. The “Wiring and Protection” section of the code is commonly referred to as the “Designing Chapter” because it covers the calculation of electrical loads and the sizing of elements in electrical systems. Chapter 2 of the NEC includes requirements for branch circuits, ground-fault circuit-interrupters (GFCI’s), arc-fault circuit-interrupters (AFCI’s), conductors, over current protection, grounding, and surge arresters. This and other circuit protection devices will be discussed.
