South Carolina Professional Engineers

Professional Development Hour (PDH) Requirements

South Carolina engineers are required to complete 30 PDH every other year.  The deadline is June 30 in even-numbered years.

The state board does not approve continuing education providers or courses. However, the Board states that courses must have a "clear purpose and objective which will maintain, improve or expand the skills and knowledge relevant to the licensee’s field of practice."

There is no limit to the number of hours that can be completed through online or correspondence courses.  A maximum of 15 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.
