The Best Resources for Continuing Education

As a professional engineer, you’re probably already aware of the continuing education requirements  to maintain your professional engineering license. Fulfilling your requirements is simple as long as you stay on top of upcoming opportunities and plan well so you’re not scrambling to get credits as your license renewal date gets closer. Over the years, we’ve written a lot about continuing education, so we’ve compiled all of our best resources to help you earn those CE credits!

Importance of Continuing Education for Professional Engineers

We know continuing education is important for maintaining your professional engineering license, but you can get so much more out of your continuing education sessions. An ever-changing industry like engineering means if you want to stay on top, you’re going to have to be up-to-date on industry trends. Not to mention, the more skills you have, the more valuable you are to potential employers.

State-by-State Requirements for Continuing Education Credits for Professional Engineers

If you’re a professional engineer practicing in multiple states, you might have different requirements for continuing education and maintaining licensure. Check out our state-by-state list of requirements for continuing education credits for professional engineers. 

Ways for Continuing Education Engineers to Earn Professional Development Hours

There are so many ways to earn PDHs! You might think it’s all conferences and full-day events, but there are ways you can fulfill your requirements without leaving your home or office. Learn more about all the ways you can earn your CE credits and which opportunities can complete the largest amount of your requirements.

How to Earn PDHs in 2020

Have you made plans to participate in any continuing education opportunities in 2020? There are a handful of upcoming webinars and in-person events to be a part of and earn! See what’s coming up in February and March. Be sure to register before it’s too late.

Becoming a Licensed Professional Engineer in Another State

As a professional engineer, there are certain situations where you may need to obtain a license in another state. Unfortunately, earning a professional engineering license in one state does not automatically make you eligible to obtain a license in another state. 

Why transfer PE licenses between states?

In order to do work in another state as a professional engineer, you must be licensed. If you’re relocating to a new state or your firm services many states, you might be required to obtain multiple state licenses. 

Some states vary in their requirements for professional engineering licensure, but these requirements are typically the same across the board:

  • Proof of passing the PE exam
  • Completion of state-specific paperwork
  • School transcripts/supplementary experience records and references
  • Completion of state-specific PE license application

Obtaining your PE license in another state

Since you’re already licensed in one state, you’re one huge step closer to obtaining your PE license in a different state. Keep in mind, if your previous professional engineering license expired prior to filling out a license application for another state, you may be considered an unlicensed applicant and might have to take the PE licensure exam again – this varies state by state.

The common thought many engineers have is they can achieve multi-state licensure by reciprocity, meaning that another state will automatically recognize a license held in another state. This is not the case. Those trying to obtain their license in another state must meet the same requirements as those that initially apply in the state.

If your current PE license is in good standing, typically obtaining a new license in another state is as simple as filling out some paperwork and an application. This is considered licensure by comity. This just means that most states allow a licensed professional engineer in one state to become licensed in another by meeting all of their application requirements. If you received your license on different standards, it may be more difficult for you to become licensed by comity in another state.

NCEES making your life easier

The National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying has made getting a PE license in a different state a little bit easier with their Council Records Program. This program compiles all of your license credentials in one place. Your record will include most – if not all – of the records and paperwork you’ll need to apply for licensure in another state. The process of getting started with this program is as simple as applying for an NCEES Record. Once your record is established, they’ll even electronically submit it to the licensing board on your behalf.
