How NJSPE Can Help You Reach Your PDH Requirements

Completing biennial professional engineering requirements in New Jersey is a major task, but it doesn’t have to be stressful. In the State of New Jersey, 24 professional development hours are required every two years, including two to eight of those hours completed in professional practice ethics. NJSPE is here to help you reach the required amount of continued education with ease.

When you become a member of NJSPE, one of the many benefits is receiving assistance in completing your continuing education requirements.

Free Online Courses

Members receive access to 15 free online seminars. Six of these training courses fall under the topic of engineering ethics, which will assist in the completion of the professional practice ethics requirements.

These courses count as one professional development hour each. In the State of New Jersey, there are no limits to how many online courses count as PDHs. The courses offer a wide-range of topics in engineering, such as:

  • Defining Roles and Risks for Professional Engineers and Construction Managers
  • Engineers Ethics: Conflicts of Interest and Confidentiality Questions
  • Future Trends in Engineering: Rail and Manufacturing
  • When Ethics Are Ignored: Lessons from Forensic Engineers

To earn the credit hours, the videos will be followed by a brief quiz. With a passing score of 70 percent or higher, members will receive one PDH per course.

Conferences and Events

Whether they are nationwide or local, events are an excellent way to make connections with others in the field of professional engineering. But networking is just one perk of attending conferences or seminars – they also provide opportunities for receiving PDHs. NJSPE offers multiple opportunities each year, including NSPE’s major annual conference.

  • Professional Engineers Conference

The conference is held each year for professional engineers and those working toward licensure. Attendees can earn continuing education credits with their attendance. In 2017, the conference will be held from July 19 to 23 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis. Attendees have the option to attend the full conference and receive up to 12 professional development hours, or attend a single day and earn up to six professional development hours.

  • Continuing Education Events

Throughout the year, NJSPE offers continuing education events around the state. In May, one of the day-long events offered attendees seven PDHs.

Other Educational Opportunities

NJSPE is in the process of creating a catalogue full of educational opportunities for members. These methods may be online, in the office, or in person.
