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 Must have a clear purpose and objective which will maintain, improve, or expand the skills and knowledge of the licensee relevant to the practice of engineering. At least 4 PDH must be earned in ethics.
Approved Activities Online courses that require the engineer pass a quiz to receive credit can be used to earn all required hours. PDHengineer’s courses meet this requirement.
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, half of the required credits must pertain to 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.
