Montana CPC or PDH for Professional Engineers
Continuing Professional Competency (CPC) Requirements
Continuing Education or PDH is known as CPC in Montana

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

Subject Requirement
Hours Required 30 hours biennially
Renewal Dates June 30 of even-numbered years for all engineers
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 course must have a “clear purpose and objective which will maintain, improve or expand the skills and knowledge relevant to the licensee’s field of practice.” A maximum of 10 PDH will be allowed per renewal cycle for self-study. Self-study is considered a formatted review of new subject matter or technical information such as video tapes series, Internet courses that do not include a final examination, etc. Courses from our courses are not subject to this limit as they require the engineer pass a quiz to receive a certificate of completion, and are therefore not considered self-study.
Approved Activities Successful completion of online courses is accepted by the Board.
PDH Carryover A maximum of 15 PDH may be carried forward into the next renewal period.
  1. For dual licensees, the number of PDH remains 30 biennially; however at least one-third shall be obtained in each profession.
  2. PDH completion records must be maintained for a minimum of 3 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.
