IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING COVID-19 AND YOUR STATE PDH REQUIREMENTS

Your state board has issued an emergency policy statement regarding Continuing Professional Development:

Between January 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021, the Board will allow renewing licensees an extension on their CPD requirements for calendar year 2020 (no later than April 30, 2021) as they show evidence of their CPD requirements completion for calendar year 2019 and 2020. Those hours attained during the extension to makeup for 2020 CPD deficiencies shall not be counted toward 2021.

Between January 1, 2022 and December 31, 2022, the Board will allow renewing licensees an extension on their CPD requirements for calendar year 2020 (no later than April 30, 2021) as they show evidence of their CPD requirements completion for calendar year 2020 and 2021. Those hours attained during the extension to makeup for 2020 CPD deficiencies shall not be counted toward 2021.

The Board is hopeful that each licensee is able to attain their 2020 CPD hours during 2020 rather than utilizing this policy, however, licensees should immediately notify Board staff in writing in the event they foresee a need to utilize this emergency policy. The deadline for this request is December 15, 2020.

This emergency policy does not affect renewals in calendar year 2020 for CPD requirements for calendar year 2018 or 2019 since these calendar years were unaffected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This policy is intended for people who remain healthy, but who are having difficulty completing their CPD requirements due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. A person seriously ill with COVID-19, or any serious illness which significantly restricts their ability to attain their CPD requirements, may consider applying for exemption under Board Rule 3109(A)(3). The failure to properly notify Board staff of the need to utilize this emergency policy may subject the licensee to disciplinary action by the Board.

This emergency policy shall terminate on December 31, 2022.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Requirements
Continuing Education or PDH is known as CPD in Louisiana

Here is a summary of the engineering continuing education requirements mandated by the Louisiana Professional Engineering and Land Surveying Board.

Last updated on March 21, 2017

PDHengineer credits have been accepted by the Louisiana Professional Engineering and Land Surveying Board, as well as all other U.S. state boards that mandate continuing education for engineers. In fact, no PDHengineer course or webinar has ever been rejected by a state licensing board. We’re so confident about the acceptability of our PDH credits that every PDHengineer course and webinar comes with the PDHengineer Triple Guarantee.

If your state licensing board does not accept any PDHengineer course or webinar:

  • We will give you a full refund
  • We will pay for a replacement course or webinar
  • We will pay any associated license renewal penalties or late fees
