Ethics V – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is Reasor v. Putnam County, Indiana 1994. Is it ethical for a county official to attempt to cover his “footstep” on some very bad surveying that he performed years earlier, while in private practice, at taxpayer expense? The National Society of Professional Surveyor’s (NSPS) “Surveyor’s Creed and Canons,” is used as a barometer by which to measure the actions of the parties in the case. This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 15 pages. This 17-Page document has a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter and the case-in-chief.

OBJECTIVES: To enhance professional competency and improve practitioner’s knowledge of the law as it relates to the practice of land surveying.
