April 2020 is the next deadline for the biennial PE license renewal. In the State of New Jersey, 24 professional development hours are required every two years, including two to eight of those hours completed in ethics. While completing the PDH requirements for the PE license can be a huge task if you wait until the last minute, there are ways to make the process a little easier.
To assist our members with the final push of credit completion, we have compiled some current and upcoming opportunities NJSPE will be offering that can earn you credits!
We have received numerous requests by our members and nonmembers to offer low-cost, online webinars that count toward your PDH requirements for the PE license. You’ve asked, and we’ve listened.
We currently offer Professional Engineering Ethics 101 online, which has been approved by 2 PDH credits in New Jersey. Taught by Larry Powers, Esq., this course is broken into several parts, including introduction to common statutory and regulatory ethics rules; review of the NSPE’s Code of Ethics with examples/case studies and an emphasis on the similarities and difference between governmental and professional society sanctions; and practical reasons for ethical practice.
Professional Engineering Ethics 101 is $35 for members and $50 for nonmembers. Once you pay securely via PayPal, you will be directed to a page where you must submit the full name to appear on your certificate of completion as well as an email where we can email you the link. It is important to note that your $35 or $50 payment is only good for ONE person’s PDH credits. Sharing the link to people will not result in free credits for those people.
After completing 100% of the video, you will submit a short survey, and your certificate of completion will be emailed to you within 14 days.
We are hoping to have additional online opportunities to earn your PDH credits prior to the end of the April 2020 deadline, so stay tuned!
In-person events are a great way to knock out most of your credits in one or two days! This year, we will be offering two full-day continuing education opportunities. The first one will be held in November 2019, and the second one will be held in March 2020.
Like previous years, these in-person events will be held in different parts of the state and will offer around six PDH credits. There will be an ethics course offered as well as additional courses on popular engineering topics. We hope to receive credit approval for New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York. Information will be posted in the next week or two, so stay tuned!
