Check Your State's Requirements
• New York
Alaska's professional engineers are now required to complete continuing education before each biennial license renewal. Licenses renew December 31 of odd numbered years and all licensees must earn 24 PDH in the biennial period.
The state board encourages engineers to "select meaningful CE (continuing education) activities which will be of benefit in the pursuit of their chosen field."
The Board does not pre-approve PDH providers or courses, but does specify that subject matter of the educational activity may include technical, ethical or managerial content relevant to the engineer's area of practice, and that the subject matter must address the public's health, safety, and welfare.
Any amount of your PDH requirement may be earned through online courses. Please note that if you hold multiple registrations in Alaska, you will not be required to meet the 24 PDH requirement in each area registered. Instead, you will be required to earn a total of 24 PDH, provided at least 8 PDH are earned in subject matter pertaining to each registration. Therefore, a registered PE and land surveyor would need only 24 PDH with a minimum of 8 PDH in engineering, 8 PDH in surveying, and 8 from any acceptable subject.
