For many state boards, engineer continuing education deadlines are approaching. Engineers in West Virginia, Vermont, and Iowa, for example, have continuing education deadlines at the end of December of this year.
Currently, 42 out of the 50 state boards require some sort of continuing education. The continuing education requirements can include activities such as attending engineering PDH webinars, taking an online PDH course, or attending an engineering conference. When engineers participate in these continuing education activities, they can earn Professional Development Hour (PDH) credits. The amount of PDH credits needed to renew a professional license varies from state to state, but generally, states require an engineer to earn approximately 15 PDH credits annually for renewal.
