Virginia has recently instituted continuing education requirements for Professional Engineers. Engineers who renew or reinstate their licenses after March 31, 2010 will be required to meet the new PDH requirements.
The law provides than PEs must complete 16 PDH in the two years immediately preceding their license renewal. PDHengineer's online courses and webinars are both acceptable for Virginia continuing education.
The Board has set forth specific requirements for continuing education activity. PDHengineer's courses and webinars meet these requirements and are guaranteed to be accepted by the Board. State regulations say that PDH activity must meet the following criteria:
PDHengineer's new course Laws, Rules and Ethics for Virginia Engineers (Revised for 2010) is specifically written for Virginia Engineers. The course discusses applicable Virginia Engineering laws as well as the Standard of Practice and Conduct for Virginia Engineers. This course is a practical review of the laws and ethical concerns you face every day. We think you'll consider this 3 PDH course a "must have" for meeting Virginia's new continuing education requirements.
