Hours Required30 hours biennially
Renewal DatesOctober 31 based on the year of initial licensure
Course ApprovalThe Board does not require pre-approval for providers or specific courses. Each engineer must determine whether an activity meets the Board’s requirements
Course ContentCourses must have a clear purpose and objective that will maintain, improve or expand the skills and knowledge relevant to the licensee’s area of practice. The Board’s Administrative rules (R 339.16041 Rule 41 [2][c]) specifically allow “Distance Learning,” which is defined as “courses where an instructor and a licensee may be apart and instruction takes place through online or electronic media” and states that there must be “access to an instructor during the course” (R 339.16041 Rule 41 [5][b]). EZpdh provides access to the qualified instructor by email at any time during the course. Our discussion with the Board indicates that this will satisfy the requirements
