Your state board has issued the following statement: The Board is aware that some conferences or other in-person professional development seminars have been cancelled to deter the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). Please be aware that licensees are allowed to obtain all PDH requirements online for renewal. The Board is aware that many licensees prefer to receive their PDH requirements via conference or in-person instruction. However, as a result of the Governor’s declaration of a statewide health emergency, the Board agrees that the best practice for this renewal period ending on June 30, 2020, is to complete any PDH requirements online. In the event that you are unable to complete the PDHs online by June 30, 2020, you may file with the Board a request for extension or exemption pursuant to S.C. Reg. 49-606(C), which provides: “Licensees experiencing physical disability, illness or other extenuating circumstances as reviewed and approved by the Board may be exempt. Supporting documentation must be furnished with any such exemption request made to the Board.”

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

PDHengineer credits have been accepted by the South Carolina Board of Engineers and Surveyors, 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
