PDHengineer.com has been providing Texas Professional engineers with high quality continuing education since 2003. We're based in Texas, so we feel a certain kinship with the Texas PE community.
Over the years, thousands of engineers have completed online courses that have been accepted by the Texas board. In fact, we've never had one of our courses rejected by ANY state engineering board. We're confident enough to offer an iron-clad money back guarantee. If any PDHengineer.com online course is rejected by your state engineering board for any reason, you get your money back. Period.
Every year, Texas PEs are required to earn 15 PDH, including 1 hour of Engineering Ethics.
Note that the Board allows you to earn up to 5 PDH in "self study," which is independent study, research or reading of a new topic or design, reading an engineering periodical, etc. However, there is no limit placed on the number of hours that can be earned by completing online courses. Completion of online courses is not considered "self-study" by the Texas Board.
Completing a PDHengineer course is easy.
PDHengineer.com has more than 2,500 hours of engineering continuing education online. It's convenient and cost-effective since you can take the course day or night in your own home or office.
