IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING COVID-19 AND YOUR STATE PDH REQUIREMENTS

Your state board has issued the following statement: Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the lack of current in-person educational opportunities, we realize many licensees who may not have previously used online educational offerings may now be looking to take advantage of these online offerings to fulfill their continuing professional competency (CPC) requirements. Many professional associations and societies, private continuing education providers, universities and community colleges have long provided educational content online, which has been acceptable for CPC credit subject to the Board Rules. Below are some of the relevant Board Rules related to online educational content.

Board Rule 21 NCAC 56.1705(d) allows Credit for correspondence, televised, Internet, videotaped, audiotaped, and other courses or tutorials, provided an exam is required for completion, shall be based upon one PDH unit for each hour assigned to the course, provided such hours are a reasonably estimated time for an average professional to complete the course.

Further, Board Rule 21 NCAC 56.1706(2), requires the licensee to have attendance verification records in the form of completion certificates, or other documents supporting evidence of attendance, which can include a combination of registration confirmation, invoice, image capture of screen, or notes to show that the licensee “attended” the “presentation.” Ultimately, the licensee attests to the Board on the renewal form and the maintained CPC log that the reported hours were obtained. Per Board Rule 21 NCAC 56.1703(3) No exam is required for attendance at a webinar presentation if attendance is documented as addressed above.

We urge all engineers to check their state board website for the most recent information.
