Intended Audience: All Engineers


The term “responsible charge” refers to the extent of control that a PE is required to exercise, while maintaining their independent control and direction of PE services or design work, and to the engineering decisions which can be made only by a “responsible” PE. This course provides an overview of the responsibilities of being in responsible charge, and the ethical considerations faced by a licensed engineer who is in that position. Each state board has its own definition as to what constitutes responsible charge, so PE’s should know the rules for the state(s) in which they are licensed PE’s
