Engineering Continuing Education for Professional Engineers License Renewal – PDH, CPD, CPC, CEU

At Engineer Educators, our dedication and continued focus is to enhance and grow the knowledge base of  practicing licensed professional engineers North America wide (United States & Canada). We offer interactive online engineering related courses in Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Structural Engineering, Computer Engineering, Mining, Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, etc. which enable licensed professional engineers to further their educational development and satisfy his or her state or providence engineering board requirements. Our staff of instructors understand and know what engineers need to maintain their licenses regardless if its professional development hours (PDH), Continuing Professional Development (CPD), Continuing Professional Competency (CPC), Continuing Education Unit (CEU); we will guide our students and satisfy these requirements with our online engineering courses and help the PE complete and/or continue his or her engineering training. Our professional administered courses are written and instructed by actively licensed professional engineers from a multitude of area of practice backgrounds.  Included with our courses we also present the guidelines and tips for every state board from our extensive background with working with and our contacts with each state's engineering board. Our expertise in engineering development goes above and beyond anything out there available online. When it comes to professional engineering development for continuing education: We work hard for the PE, so they don't have too

What is a CEU?

A CEU is a continuing education unit. This is used as a measurement, consisting of 10 hours, in which a licensed individual, seeking to continue their education, completes in order to maintain his or her state issued license. We specialize in CEU for Professional Engineers, which can be completed with our online engineering courses.

What are CEUs?

A CEUs is continuing education units. CEUs are multiple units of education continuation to enable a individual to maintain their license. There are multiple methods of obtaining CEUs, depending on the state/providence, Please reference our state requirements page for more information. Also, a search online can also be useful: for example try searching online for "online engineering courses", "free engineering courses", "seminars", and many others to see detailed on information on CEUs.

What is a PDH?

PDH means “Professional Development Hour” and/or sometimes “Professional Development Units”. It is defined by one contact hour of instruction, presentation, or study. For example, a interactive course on engineering can only have a certain amount of PDH’s for one course or seminar. During a course the maximum amount of PDH is eight with a hour lunch break in between. Engineering PDH courses are most commonly used by licensed professional engineers, surveyors, architects, and geologists for continued education courses to fulfill licensing requirements.PE's in the workplace

What is a professional engineer?

In order to be called a professional engineer, or PE, an individual is required to be certified by a state board to practice engineering in any number of a variety of fields of engineering. A PE certification shows that the engineer performs at a high superior standard and it is a symbol of high achievement. This also assures the public (people) the licensee is able to operate at a higher standard than a non-licensed engineer. A PE license allows the engineer to sign-off and approve various types of design projects which may concern the public safety. For example: Building designs, Bridge designs, Structural modifications, HVAC plans, etc. Our Online PE courses will teach those types of courses so the PE licensee meets their state board continuing education requirements.

What is engineering PDH?

This term refers to the amount of time that an engineer will spend on a course in a seminar. This pretty much means that you are learning from a teacher. If someone was to take an online engineering course they would have a certain amount of PDH, or “Professional Development Hours,” in order to show the amount of time that the individual took to take the course.

Which states require continuing education for engineers?

Currently forty-two out of the fifty states do require continuing educational courses. Our PDH/CEU/CEP/CPD courses are accepted for professional engineer continuing education for PE license renewal in the following states: Alabama (AL), Alaska (AK), Arkansas (AR), Delaware (DE), Florida (FL), Georgia (GA), Idaho (ID), Illinois (IL), Indiana (IN), Iowa (IA), Kansas (KS), Kentucky (KY), Louisiana (LA), Maine (ME), Maryland (MD), Michigan (MI), Minnesota (MN), Mississippi (MS), Missouri (MI), Montana (MT), Nebraska (NE), Nevada (NV), New Hampshire (NH), New Jersey (NJ), New Mexico (NM), New York (NY), North Carolina (NC), North Dakota (ND), Ohio (OH), Oklahoma (OK), Oregon (OR), Pennsylvania (PA), South Carolina (SC), South Dakota (SD), Tennessee (TN), Texas (TX), Utah (UT), Vermont (VT), Virginia (VA), West Virginia (WV), Wisconsin (WI), and Wyoming (WY). The eight states that do not require a continuing education courses are Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Colorado, California, Arizona, Washington, and Hawaii.

What is CDP?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. This refers to the process in which you track and record the skills, knowledge, and experience you will gain as you work. The experience that will be tracked is the work you do based upon your work beyond your initial training.

What is CPC?

CPC stands for Continuing Professional Competency, which are requirements for licensed professional engineers to remain competent in his or her profession. It is also required for professional engineers to promote public safety, health, and welfare by maintaining the license with educational courses within their license practice.
