    New Program: Ethical Issues of Land Surveying Profession

    5:30 pm-9:30 pm
    2018.06.13

    New Program!

    Ethical Issues of the Land Surveying Profession

    This course consists of ethical issues of the Land Surveying profession, being a surveyor, we should know what is considered unprofessional and inconsistent with honorable and dignified bearing for any professional practitioner. We should follow the ethical guidelines while dealing with clients, other surveyors, and the public. Professional land surveyors uphold and advance the integrity, honor, and dignity of the land surveyors’ profession by using their knowledge and skill for the enhancement of human welfare, by being honest and impartial, by serving with fidelity the public, their employers and clients, by striving to increase the competence and prestige of the land surveyors’ profession, and by supporting the professional and technical societies of their disciplines. Professional land surveyors shall hold paramount the safety, health and welfare of the public in the performance of their professional duties. They shall perform services only in the areas of their competence. They shall issue public statements only in an objective and truthful manner. They shall act in professional matters for each employer or client as faithful agents or trustees, and shall avoid conflicts of interest. They shall build their professional reputations on the merit of their services. They shall act in such a manner as to uphold and enhance the honor, integrity, and dignity of their profession. They shall continue their professional development throughout their careers and shall provide opportunities for the professional development of those under their supervision.

    This seminar will consist of various practical ethical situations and guide land surveyors in following the guidelines of professional ethics.

    Topics Include:

    • Introduction to Ethics Issues of Land Surveying Profession
    • Why maintaining high ethical standard is so important in land surveying profession:
    • Land surveying profession ethical guidelines with reference to various Land Surveying organizations and licensing boards
    • Professional land surveyor’s rights and obligations in dealing with safety, health and welfare of the public in the performance of their professional duties
    • Pitfalls in Land Surveying Profession
    • How to maintain high ethical standard in surveying profession with practical examples

    New Program: Mathematics for Land Surveyors

    5:30 pm-9:30 pm
    2018.06.20

    New Program!

    Mathematics for Land Surveyors

    This course will consist of basic and advanced mathematics for land surveyors. The purpose of this course is to present basic math concepts and principles useful to survey computations. It is important for land surveyors to have a developed understanding of the basic operations of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. This unit is not designed as a complete math course, but rather as an overview and guide to computation processes unique to surveying and mapping. Basic survey mathematics generally consists of applications of formulas and equations that have been adapted to work toward the specific needs of the surveyor.

    Overview of basic undergraduate mathematics for land surveyors emphasize mathematical concepts and principles rather than computation. This will include overview of General surveying: geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, error theory, and analysis; Boundary surveying: geometry, trigonometry, error theory and analysis; Cartography: pre-calculus; map projections: linear algebra, advanced calculus; GIS: trigonometry, pre-calculus, statistics, error theory and analysis; remote sensing: trigonometry, pre-calculus, statistics; Photogrammetry: linear algebra, error theory, and analysis; Geodesy: advanced calculus, linear algebra, error theory, and analysis; Surveying applications: varies, but error theory and analysis usually central; Professional skills: pre-calculus; Measurement theory: graph theory, error theory, and analysis; and error theory and analysis: calculus, linear algebra, statistics. The advance survey mathematics will help seminar attendees to recognize solution formats for problems and then make correct and effective use of appropriate methods to solve complex survey problems.

    Overview of advanced mathematics for land surveyors emphasize mathematical concepts and principles rather than computation. This will include overview of college algebra, trigonometry, analytic geometry, differential and integral calculus, linear algebra, numerical analysis, probability and statistics, and advanced calculus. Surveyors will find math operations, fundamental and advanced mathematical skills addressed in this course very useful in the educational and professional career.

    Topics Include:

    • Why mathematics is important for land surveying profession
    • Which portion of mathematics knowledge is critical for land surveyors
    • Basic surveying mathematics that applies to land surveying profession
    • Advanced surveying mathematics that applies to land surveying profession
    • How to visualize immediate preliminary solution to complex mathematical problems

    OSHA 8-Hour HAZWOPER Annual Refresher Training

    8:00 am-4:00 pm
    2018.06.27

    Have you taken a 24 or 40 hour OSHA HAZWOPER course, and need to renew your certification?

     

    Don’t be out of compliance with OSHA regulations. This full-day training course meets the requirements outlined in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120 for 8 (eight) hours of annual refresher training for workers at hazardous waste sites. This program is designed for general site workers who remove hazardous waste or who are exposed or potentially exposed to hazardous substances or health hazards and who have already taken the HAZWOPER 24-hour or HAZWOPER 40-hour certification training. This program covers topics pertaining to workplace hazards associated with Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER).

    Topics Include:
    HAZWOPER regulations, site characterization, toxicology, hazard recognition, personal protective equipment, decontamination, medical surveillance, confined space entry and emergency procedures and will include a combination of lectures, class exercises and hands-on training.

    Benefits from Attending this Program:
    Employers that invest in workplace safety and health can expect to reduce fatalities, injuries, and illnesses. This will result in cost savings in a variety of areas, such as lowering workers’ compensation costs and medical expenses, avoiding OSHA penalties, and reducing costs to train replacement employees and conduct accident investigations. In addition, employers often find that changes made to improve workplace safety and health can result in significant improvements to their organization’s productivity and financial performance.
