Pennsylvania Professional Engineers

Professional Development Hour (PDH) Requirements

Pennsylvania engineers are required to complete 24 PDH every biennial renewal cycle.  The expiration date is September 31 of odd-numbered years.

The state Board does not approve continuing education courses or providers.  However, the courses must “maintain, improve or develop the professional’s skills or knowledge”. 

There is no limit to the number of hours that can be completed through online courses.  A maximum of 12 PDH may be carried forward into the next renewal period. 

MONEY BACK GUARANTEE:  If the state Board rejects one of our courses for any reason, you get a FULL refund.  No questions asked.  Simply provide a copy of the rejection letter issued to you by your State Licensing Board.
