Your state board has issued the following statement: As you know, we are in the midst of a public health emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We understand that current circumstances are changing our working conditions and making much of life more challenging. We at the Department of Safety and Professional Services are working with Governor Evers along with the Examining Board of Architects, Landscape Architects, Professional Engineers, Designers and Professional Land Surveyors to ensure licensed professionals do not lose their license as a result of COVID-19 related disruptions.

We realize that COVID-19 has led to cancellations and postponements of conferences, conventions and other meetings where individuals often earned continuing education credit. If you are unable to complete your Continuing Education (CE) requirements because of COVID-19-related disruptions, you may request a CE waiver. Please submit your request for a CE waiver to when you file for renewal of your license. Please include a statement and any supporting documentation regarding your inability to complete CE requirements. Also note that we are suspending fees for CE waiver requests related to COVID-19.

The Department of Safety and Professional Services will review each waiver request individually. Granted waivers will not eliminate the need to complete CEs. Rather, we will renew licenses with a CE extension provision, which will expire on January 31, 2021. Any CE earned during the extension will first be applied to any 2020 renewal deficits. Once 2020 ​CE requirements are satisfied, any extra credits earned will be applied to the 2022 renewal period.

PDHengineer credits have been accepted by the Examining Board of Architects, Landscape Architects, Professional Engineers, Designers, and Land 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
