PDHengineer is coming to Chicago! Interesting topics . . . good food . . . camaraderie with your peers. We have teamed up with Professional Development Seminars to host live 2-day multi-discipline seminars in 8 cities across the South and the Midwest. This is the 27th year that PDS has provided these Multi-Topic seminars.

Earn up to 15 PDH in Two Days

Earn 15 PDH accepted in all states. At the conclusion of the two-day seminar, you will be awarded a certificate of completion indicating you have earned 15 PDH.*

It’s an interesting and enjoyable way to earn all of the continuing education hours needed for your license renewal. Credits awarded are valid in all states and are approved as live credits in New York, Wisconsin, and Iowa to fulfill the live training requirements in those states.

The cost for the two-day 15 PDH seminar is just $550. And, the price includes breakfast and lunch, as well as mid-morning and mid-afternoon refreshment breaks on both days.

*All subjects are considered acceptable by the Illinois Board. However, due to specific State Board Regulations, not all subjects may be acceptable in all other states. New York licensed engineers will be awarded credits in accordance with state board requirements regarding content and training time.


Here is the agenda for this year’s seminar. Be sure to check back often as new topics are being added as we receive confirmations from our speakers. Some cities fill up quickly, so we suggest that you register early to ensure your place at the seminar.
