Stone Strong seminar hosted by LHV Precast, presentation by Adam Baker. Hudson Valley contractors, engineers, and municipalities were in attendance.

In 2002 continuing education, also known as continuing professional competency (CPC), became mandatory for licensed Professional Engineers to maintain their New York State registration status. This competency is measured in professional development hours (PDH) and each licensed engineer is required to complete 36 hours of continuing education during each three-year registration period.

The modern world of engineering is one of rapidly advancing technology and innovation. Continuing education is designed to help professional engineers remain current in this time of rapid change, which is critically important to both meet client expectations and protect public safety.

The Practicing Institute of Engineering, or PIE, facilitates engineers’ ability to meet these educational requirements by evaluating and approving courses for professional development hours (PDH) credit and by facilitating the same for the sponsoring organizations affiliated with it.

CHANGES TO CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS

The most significant changes to continuing education in New York State were just released by the Board of Regents; and reflect two changes that NYSSPE requested back in 2009.

The first is a mandatory 1 PDH per each triennial registration period in the area of ethics.

The second change allows up to 9 PDHs per each triennial registration period for participation on a technical or regulatory committee that is established by a government agency or professional association.1 PDH can be earned for every 2 hours spent working on a committee. To claim this credit, your participation must be certified by an authorized individual within the agency or association. This is considered an “other educational activity.” Please click HERE to view the new regulation.
