It depends on each state's policies. Some states allow this while others prohibit receiving credit for the same course. We have tried to provide guidance for each state in this area, but many states don’t specifically “allow” or “prohibit” taking the same course. In these states, if you want to retake a course, you should contact your state to find out their position on the issue.
Upon successful completion of the course, you will be able to print out or save electronically a completion certificate that carries your name and PE number, the name of the course, and the PDH value.
No. All boards use a form of audit system and the board will contact you if you are selected for audit. Upon being selected for audit, you will be asked to provide evidence that you completed the continuing education for the period of the audit.
States attempt to adhere to the NCEES standard which is an activity that will maintain, improve, or expand the skills and knowledge obtained prior to initial licensure and develop new and relevant skills and knowledge.
Not in all cases.
New York professional engineers are required to complete 36 PDHs per 3 year licensure period.
Wisconsin requires 30 PDHs biennially but also requires 13 of the 30 be in real time instructor contact or in the traditional site classroom.
Nebraska also requires 30 PDHs biennially but limits web offerings, except those offered by universities and selected professional societies, to 25%.
Currently, those are the only 3 states that limit the opportunity to obtain continuing education via online learning.
You are limited to 3 hours per year but 6 hours per biannual renewal period. You may take all 6 hours at once if you’d like but are limited to 6 hours for each 2-year renewal period.
