FAQ - Record Keeping
What documentation is provided to prove to my board that I completed a PDHengineer.com online course?
Upon successfully passing the online course quiz, you will be able to print a certificate of completion for your records.
Who is responsible for maintaining records of my PDH activities?
You are ultimately responsible for maintaining a record of your PDH activities. Upon successfully completing a course on PDHengineer.com, you should print the certificate of completion and save it for your records in the event that you are audited by your licensing board. You may access a copy of your certificates at any time using the "My Account" tab at the top right of any page of our site. Certificates can be found by clicking the links "Courses Completed" or "Webinars or Seminars Completed." Note that PDHengineer.com also maintains a hard copy of your certificate of completion in our corporate headquarters for a period of 6 years.
In the event that I misplace my certificate of completion, can I obtain another copy from PDHengineer.com?
You can obtain a copy of your certificate of completion by accessing My Account from the top navigation bar. PDHengineer.com also maintains a hard copy record of your certificate of completion.
Does a record of my course completion need to be sent to my licensing board?
The licensing boards do not typically require you to submit course completion certificates when renewing your license. However, you may be required to list continuing education activities and you will need to provide a course certificate of completion if you are audited by your licensing board. Check with your board for your state requirements.
If you are registered in the state of North Carolina or Florida, PDHengineer.com will periodically send records of your course activity to your state board in accordance with the requirements for those states. Florida and North Carolina are currently the only states that require a course provider to send course records to the state boards. For proper reporting, it is important that you are certain that you have entered the correct license numbers for these states in your user profile.
Florida-registered engineers should note that effective with the renewal period beginning May 1, 2009, we will report both Area of Practice and Laws and Rules course completion electronically to the Florida Board. This is a change from prior renewal periods.
