Licensees shall be required to meet the continuing education requirements as a condition for licensure renewal. All PDH's earned must be relevant to the practice of engineering and/or land surveying as applicable and may include technical, ethical or business content. The activity should maintain, improve or expand the skills set and knowledge relevant to the licensee's field and methods of practice.
To demonstrate that a Professional Engineer and/or Land Surveyor maintains an acceptable level of competency, a licensee must obtain a minimum of thirty (30) professional development hours (PDH's) for a twenty-four month (biennial) renewal period.
Each licensee is charged with the responsibility of his/her own professional development activities. The responsibility of maintaining records to be used to support credits claimed is also the responsibility of the licensee. Records required include, but are not limited to:
(1) A log showing the title of the activity, sponsoring organization, date of the activity and the PDH's claimed.
(2) Attendance verification records in the form of completion certificates, or other approved documentation supporting evidence of attendance shall include the name of the licensee, title of the activity, sponsoring organization, date of the activity and PDH's earned. Documentation which does not support evidence of actual attendance will not be accepted for audit purposes.
For your convenience, you may use the log form below or create your own log form as long as it provides the information listed above.
