Here is a summary of the engineering continuing education requirements mandated by the The Alaska State Board of Registration for Architects and Engineers.

Subject Requirement
Hours Required 24 hours biennially
Renewal Dates December 31 odd years
Board Approval The Board does not pre-approve providers or specific courses. Each engineer must determine whether an activity meets the Board’s requirements.
Approved Content Courses must be relevant to the engineer’s field of practice and may include content of a technical, ethical, or managerial nature. Subject matter must address the health, safety, and welfare of the public. Persons holding Alaska registration in more than one area must meet a minimum of 8 PDH per biennial period in each registration area.
Approved Activities Internet courses and correspondence courses are specifically listed as approved activities. There is no limit on the number of hours that can be earned through online continuing education.
PDH Carryover A maximum of 12 PDH may be carried forward into the next renewal period.
  1. The Board specifically states that personal self-improvement courses, equipment demonstrations, trade shows, and topics not relevant to the registrant’s field of practice will not be accepted for PDH credit.
  2. If a registrant is currently registered in another jurisdiction which has mandatory CE requirements that are substantially similar to or exceed those of Alaska, the registrant may certify that he/she has met all CE requirements in that jurisdiction.
  3. PDH completion records must be maintained for a minimum of 4 years. PDHengineer helps you meet this requirement by providing you with the ability to instantly access and print a certificate upon successful completion of a course or webinar. Additionally, your certificates of completion are securely maintained by PDHengineer for a minimum of ten years and can be accessed online at any time through your login account.
