Ohio Professional Engineer License Renewal due dates are quickly approaching. December 31, 2019 is the PE license renewal and continuing education completion deadline. PDH Now is offering several discount codes to help you meet your PE CEU requirements.
All of our Ohio ready PE renewal continuing education courses can be found here.
In Ohio, registered professional engineers must complete 30 hours of continuing education during the two-year (biennial) license renewal period unless otherwise exempt. Continuing education shall be relevant to the practice of engineering or surveying and must include technical, ethical or managerial material. If a licensee earns more than the required 30 hours in any biennial renewal period, a maximum of 15 of the remaining hours may be carried forward into the following renewal period.
The Ohio Board does not approve providers of PE continuing education or courses.
Records are required to be kept and made available to the Board for random audits. The following is a link to the PE continuing education / policy page of the Ohio Engineers and Surveyors Board.
The Ohio Board of Professional Engineers recently changed its rules regarding acceptable formats for PE continuing education and issued the following CPD Advisory:
Registrants are reminded that Board policy allows up to amaximum of three (3) hours continuing professional development per year for the completion of correspondence courses (paper, online, or other formats) provided the course and the course provider meet the requirements of R.C. 4733.151.
Important: Do not confuse correspondence courses and online courses. Correspondence courses are courses that involve reading articles or other text and can be received by mail or online. Correspondence courses are typically self-paced and participation is not monitored by the provider. These types of courses are acceptable up to three hours per year.
Based on clarification from Ohio, use of credits received from PDH Now is limited to 6 PDHs per biennium.
