Tennessee Professional Engineers

Professional Development Hour (PDH) Requirements

Tennessee engineers are required to complete 24 PDH every other year.  The deadline is based on your date of original licensure. 

The state board does not approve continuing education providers or courses. However, the Board requires that courses pertain to technical, ethical or managerial content that are relevant to the practice of engineering.  A majority of the hours earned must address health, safety, welfare, or technical competency.  All of our courses meet these requirements.

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