Professionalism course: a step toward restoring the public trust

The OIQ’s Board of Directors set May 15 as the deadline for completing the professionalism course offered on line since last September. Since we are just a few days from that date, I would like to use this editorial to remind you why the OIQ has decided that this new requirement should apply to all of its members.

As you may know, the prime objective of the OIQ’s 2010-2015 strategic plan is to restore the bond of trust between the public and the profession. In order to give better focus to the activities resulting from this plan, the OIQ conducted studies to improve its understanding of the difficulties experienced by engineers in the area of ethics and professional conduct. These studies revealed three main findings to us.

The first concerns the ethics and professional conduct violations involved in certain business practices of the construction and public works sector. The other two findings apply to all engineers, regardless of their sector. First, engineers are often pressured to accept projects that do not provide enough time or the budget required to complete them according to best practices. Second, many engineers unfortunately do not know their Code of Ethics very well.
