      1. The Board specifically states that personal self-improvement courses, equipment demonstrations, trade shows, and personal, estate, or financial planning courses will not be accepted for PDH credit. Additionally, “courses the content of which is below the level of knowledge and skill that reflects the responsibility of engineer in charge” will not be accepted.
      2. Continuing education providers must furnish each participant with an individual certificate of attendance. Attendance records must be maintained by continuing education providers and by the licensee for a minimum of 4 years. EZ-pdh.com meets this requirement by providing you with the ability to instantly access and print a certificate upon successful completion of a course. Additionally, your certificates of completion are securely maintained by EZ-pdh.com for a minimum of seven years and can be accessed online at any time through your login account

    NOTE: Please retain your records. Electronic Records are to be NO LONGER submitted to DBPR. Reference following from FBPE.org on continuing education

    “Additionally, the FBPE will not be providing instructions for using the DBPR reporting tool. With the commencement of the CE audit following renewal in 2013, CE providers are no longer required to report CE credits for engineers. Since some providers have elected to report and others have not, it has caused a great deal of confusion for licensees. Therefore, FBPE prefers that no providers report CE credits using the DBPR reporting tool but continue to provide certificates to licensees as required by rule. If selected for an audit of CE, the licensee will provide the appropriate certificate to FBPE.”

      Course Content
      • Licensees are required to obtain one (1) hour of continuing education focusing on Florida’s professional engineering laws (F.S. 471) and rules (F.A.C. 61G15)
      • Licensees are required to obtain one (1) hour of continuing education focusing on ethics for professional engineers
      • Licensees are required to obtain four (4) hours of continuing education focusing on each licensee’s particular area(s) of practice.
      • The remaining twelve (12) hours of continuing education may correlate to any topic pertinent to the practice of engineering.

        1. The Board specifically states that personal self-improvement courses, equipment demonstrations, trade shows, and personal, estate, or financial planning courses will not be accepted for PDH credit. Additionally, “courses the content of which is below the level of knowledge and skill that reflects the responsibility of engineer in charge” will not be accepted.
        2. Continuing education providers must furnish each participant with an individual certificate of attendance. Attendance records must be maintained by continuing education providers and by the licensee for a minimum of 4 years. EZ-pdh.com meets this requirement by providing you with the ability to instantly access and print a certificate upon successful completion of a course. Additionally, your certificates of completion are securely maintained by EZ-pdh.com for a minimum of seven years and can be accessed online at any time through your login account

      NOTE: Please retain your records. Electronic Records are to be NO LONGER submitted to DBPR. Reference following from FBPE.org on continuing education

      “Additionally, the FBPE will not be providing instructions for using the DBPR reporting tool. With the commencement of the CE audit following renewal in 2013, CE providers are no longer required to report CE credits for engineers. Since some providers have elected to report and others have not, it has caused a great deal of confusion for licensees. Therefore, FBPE prefers that no providers report CE credits using the DBPR reporting tool but continue to provide certificates to licensees as required by rule. If selected for an audit of CE, the licensee will provide the appropriate certificate to FBPE.”

      Deterioration of Concrete: 2 PDH

      A basic understanding of the underlying causes of concrete deficiencies is essential to performing meaningful evaluations which lead to the proper selection of the method or technique used to successfully repair concrete. Symptoms or observations of a deficiency must be differentiated from the actual cause of the deficiency, and it is imperative that causes and not symptoms be addressed in repairs. Deterioration of concrete is an extremely complex subject since, in most cases, the damage detected will be the result of more than one mechanism.

      In this course, the student will review Chapter 3, Causes of Distress and Deterioration of Concrete from Engineer Manual (EM) 1110-2-2002, “Engineering and Design – Evaluation and Repair of Concrete Structures” published by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (issued 30 June 1995). This course is most relevant to engineers wishing to attain knowledge on the most common causes of problems in concrete. The course also provides a brief description of the basic mechanism of each common problem, a description of the typical symptoms that would be observed during a visual inspection, and suggests preventative methods or techniques to prevent further damage.

      SPECIFIC KNOWLEDGE OR SKILL OBTAINED

      This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

      • Common causes of concrete deterioration
      • Symptoms of concrete distress and deterioration that can be found during visual inspections
      • Preventative measures to reduce or eliminate further concrete degradation.

      Additional
        1. The Board specifically states that personal self-improvement courses, equipment demonstrations, trade shows, and personal, estate, or financial planning courses will not be accepted for PDH credit. Additionally, “courses the content of which is below the level of knowledge and skill that reflects the responsibility of engineer in charge” will not be accepted.
        2. Continuing education providers must furnish each participant with an individual certificate of attendance. Attendance records must be maintained by continuing education providers and by the licensee for a minimum of 4 years. EZ-pdh.com meets this requirement by providing you with the ability to instantly access and print a certificate upon successful completion of a course. Additionally, your certificates of completion are securely maintained by EZ-pdh.com for a minimum of seven years and can be accessed online at any time through your login account

      NOTE: Please retain your records. Electronic Records are to be NO LONGER submitted to DBPR. Reference following from FBPE.org on continuing education

      “Additionally, the FBPE will not be providing instructions for using the DBPR reporting tool. With the commencement of the CE audit following renewal in 2013, CE providers are no longer required to report CE credits for engineers. Since some providers have elected to report and others have not, it has caused a great deal of confusion for licensees. Therefore, FBPE prefers that no providers report CE credits using the DBPR reporting tool but continue to provide certificates to licensees as required by rule. If selected for an audit of CE, the licensee will provide the appropriate certificate to FBPE.”
