Continuing Education or PDH is known as CPD in Kentucky

Here is a summary of the engineering continuing education requirements mandated by the Kentucky Board of Engineers and Land Surveyors.

Renewal Dates June 30 odd years for engineers with last names beginning with A – K.
June 30 even years for engineers with last names beginning with L – Z.
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 The Board requires that continuing education hours shall be directly related to the professional growth and development of the professional engineer and must cover technical, ethical, or managerial subject matter.
Approved Activities Continuing education courses such as those offered by PDHengineer are specifically shown as accepted provided they are (1) relevant to the practice of engineering, (2) contain technical, ethical, or managerial subjects, (3) are an organized program of learning, (4) are conducted by individuals with education, training, or expertise, and (4) do not advertise a specific product or service. PDHengineer’s courses comply with each of these requirements.
PDH Carryover A maximum of 15 PDH may be carried forward into the next renewal period.
  1. PDH units earned by an engineer also holding a land surveying license can counted toward the land surveyor requirements.
  2. PDH completion records must be maintained for a minimum by the licensee. 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.
