Continuing Professional Competency
On October 5, 2011 the Assembly Committee on Labor and Workforce Development held a public hearing on the proposed rule. Another hearing was held by the JCRAR committee (the Joint Committee for Review of Administrative Rules) on November 10, 2011. On November 15, 2011, JCRAR adopted a motion to waive the committee's review period. This action ended the legislative review process for the rule and sent the rule back to the agency to be published and become effective.

The rule has been published, and the rules will require professional engineers to complete 30 PHDs prior to renewing their license each biennium. The requirement will be in effect for the next licensing period, which means that PEs will have a period of two years, starting August 2012 to August 2014, in which to complete the 30 PDHs in order to renew a PE license in 2014.

The 30 hours of approved PDHs or equivalent continuing education units, must be pertinent to the practice of professional engineering.

IMPORTANT: In order to renew a license by the 7/31/2014 renewal deadline, all licensees must complete 30 PDHs between 8/1/2012-7/31/2014.

The required 30 PDHs must include a minimum of two (2) PDHs in the area of professional conduct and ethics.

Registrants must obtain a minimum of 13 PDHs, per biennium, via courses where the registrant interacts in real time in a traditional classroom setting, computer conferencing or interactive video conference where participants are present in the same room or logged in at the same time and can communicate directly with each other and ask questions of the instructor.

NOTE: The continuing education requirements do not apply to the biennium in which a license is first issued.
