In order to help safeguard life, health and property and to promote the public welfare, the practice of professional engineering, professional land surveying and professional geology in this Commonwealth requires continuing professional competency.

Section 4.5(b) of the Engineer, Land Surveyor and Geologist Registration Law requires that each licensee shall be required to meet the continuing professional competency requirements as a condition for licensure renewal.

Licenses expire September 30 of every odd-numbered year. Section 4.5 of the Engineer, Land Surveyor and Geologist Registration Law requires the completion of at least 24 PDH, as a condition for licensure renewal.

Each licensee shall be required to obtain twenty-four PDH units during the biennial renewal period. If a licensee exceeds the requirement in any renewal period, a maximum of twelve PDH units may be carried forward into the subsequent renewal period.

“Professional development hour” or “PDH” shall mean fifty minutes of instruction or presentation relevant to professional practice or any equivalent.

PDH units may be earned as completion of correspondence, televised, videotaped and other short courses or tutorials relevant to professional practice.

Continuing professional competency obtained by a licensee should maintain, improve or expand skills and knowledge obtained prior to initial licensure, including law and ethics applicable to the profession, or develop new and relevant skills and knowledge. No credit shall be given for a course in practice building or office management.
