Check With Your State Board or Certifying Body
Some states and certifying bodies require pre-approval of professional development hours and documentation requirements also vary, so be sure to check with your appropriate agency.
For Professional Engineers
The National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) maintains a state-by-state list of continuing professional development requirements as well as links to the state boards for more information. PDH hours align with the NCEES Model Rules.
You are responsible for maintaining the documentation for your PDHs. You can request a certificate of completion after you attend any of our eligible programs to keep for your records.
