Professional Development Workshop
Friday October 23, 2015
This year’s Professional Development workshop is “Professional Ethics for Chemists”. It will be held from 08:00 to 16:30 on October 23 and will focus on “Professionalism in Chemistry”. This engaging one-day course provides an introduction to the ethical framework that guides professional chemists. The course focuses on solving practical issues that arise in professional practice and in the workplace by working through case studies in a facilitated group discussion. An examination based on a case study will be given at the end of the day. Candidates that pass the exam will receive an Ethics certificate.
Completion of the course is an asset to enhance your professional credentials, for those considering management activities in the workplace, and for your employer to have someone holding the certification. To register, please go to https://www.pchembc.ca/professional-ethics-for-chemists/.
