Proof of Completion for Pennsylvania Engineer Continuing Education

Pursuant to Section 4.5(f) of the Engineer, Land Surveyor and Geologist Registration Law (Act), it is necessary for each licensed professional engineer, land surveyor or geologist to maintain a log documenting the type of continuing professional competency activity claimed for PDH, The log must include the name of the sponsoring organization, the location and duration of the activity, the name(s) of the instructor(s) or speaker(s) and PDH earned for each activity. All licensees must maintain attendance verification records (kept in accordance with any requirements established by regulation) in support of any and all credits claimed for attended activities, should they be requested by the Board office.
Please be advised that, unless evidence of compliance with the Board's continuing competency requirements has been specifically requested by the Board office, a licensee’s documentation of completed continuing professional competency activities will not be reviewed by the Board, or the Board office, for the purpose of advising a licensee whether they have fulfilled their continuing professional competency requirements, or if a specific course or activity is considered acceptable. Additionally, the Board does not and will not maintain an ongoing record of a licensee’s completed activities.
