Continuing Education or PDH is known as CPC in Nevada

Here is a summary of the engineering continuing education requirements mandated by the Nevada State Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors.

Renewal Dates January 1 of odd-numbered years for licensees whose last name begins with one of the letters A through E.

Board Approval The Board does not pre-approve providers or specific courses. Each engineer must determine whether an activity meets the Board’s requirements; however, guidelines have been provided as shown above.
Approved Content The Nevada Board website states that the “requirement for continuing professional competency (CPC) is intended to protect the public by reinforcing the need for lifelong learning in order to stay more current with changing technology, equipment, procedures, processes, tools, and established technical and business standards. The rule specifying qualifying CPC activities was designed to give flexibility in selecting among a broad range of subjects that are intended to strengthen or maintain competency in technical, managerial (business), or ethical fields.” Courses must “maintain, improve, or expand the skills and knowledge relevant to (the engineer’s) discipline.”
Approved Activities Internet-based training is accepted provided a graded quiz is required. PDHengineer’s online courses meet this criteria.
PDH Carryover A maximum of 15 PDH may be carried forward into the next renewal period.
  1. For dual licensees, the number of PDH units required shall be 18, at least one-third of which shall be obtained in each profession.
  2. PDH completion records must be maintained for a minimum of 3 years. PDHengineer helps you meet this requirement by providing you with the ability to instantly access and print a certificate upon successful completion of a course or webinar. Additionally, your certificates of completion are securely maintained by PDHengineer for a minimum of ten years and can be accessed online at any time through your login account.
