Feb. 17 is the deadline for professional engineers to register for the continuing education course, Professional Engineering Law and Ethics, scheduled Thursday, Feb. 23, from 1 pm to 4 pm at Purdue University Calumet.

The three-hour, non-credit course, first in a series of continuing education offerings in response to Indiana State Board of Professional Engineers requirements, includes case discussions of real life situations.

He is certified by the Indiana Commission for Continuing Legal Education as an alternative dispute mediator and holds the AV® Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbell, which represents the highest rating for ethics and legal ability.
