Approved Sponsor/Provider

All of our online courses comply with the Continuing Professional Competency Guidelines published by National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) and, therefore, should be acceptable to all the state boards requiring mandatory continuing education. In order for your state board to accept your PDH's, you need to choose courses that will maintain, improve, or expand the skills and knowledge related to your field of practice.

PDH Center (PDHonline.org/PDHcenter.com) is a Board Approved or Recognized Sponsor/Provider of continuing education activities for Professional Engineers in the following states:

*Attention NY Licensed PE & PLS:

PDHonline.org, Inc./PDH Center is a New York State Board Approved Continuing Education Sponsor. There are two categories of acceptable continuing education in the state of New York:

  1. Educational Activities: A maximum of 18 hours may be in educational activities for professional engineers and a maximum of 8 hours may be in educational activities for land surveyors. Acceptable educational activities include online courses, audio/video courses, and other structured self-study programs that include a testing instrument and is offered by an approved sponsor. PDH online courses in the following areas belong to this category and are accepted by the New York State Board:

    • Technical courses in all subject areas.
    • Courses related to laws and regulations governing the practice of engineering and/or land surveying in the state of New York.
    • Courses related to matters of laws and ethics that contribute to the health and welfare of the public.

    Note: New York State Board does not accept courses that do not directly contribute to the professional practice in the state of New York, which include:


    • Courses related to office management, risk management, leadership, marketing, accounting, financial planning, insurance, real estate, and basic CAD.
    • Courses addressing the laws and rules for practicing engineering and/or land surveying in states other than the New York state.

  2. Live Courses: A minimum of 18 hours of continuing education must be completed in live courses for professional engineers and a minimum of 16 hours of continuing education must be completed in live courses for land surveyors. All 36 hours for professional engineers or 24 hours for land surveyors may be completed through acceptable live courses. Acceptable live courses include webinars, seminars, workshops, lectures, technical presentations, telecourses, teleconferences, and other instructional methods that provide a student the opportunity for immediate interaction with an instructor/presenter. Our webinars belong to this category and are accepted by the New York State Board as continuing education courses.

In addition, we are a Board Approved or Recognized Sponsor/Provider of continuing education activities for Professional Land Surveyors in the following states:

To our knowledge, Maryland, Louisiana, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York and Florida are the only six states that currently pre-approve courses or providers (vendors) in both engineering and surveying fields. Although Kentucky has separate pre-approval programs for land surveyors' continuing education activities, they usually accept courses pre-approved by another jurisdiction. In other states that have mandatory Continuing Professional Competency (CPC) requirements, it is generally the responsibility of the engineers and surveyors to select courses that meet the state guidelines. The typical state guidelines define a qualified course as one whose purpose and objective are clear with a content that will "maintain, improve, or expand the skills and knowledge of the licensee's field of practice".

Designation as an Approved Sponsor/Provider indicates recognition by the Board of our online courses as meeting the required standards. Professional engineers and land surveyors in Florida and New York as well as professional land surveyors in Tennessee, Missouri, Texas, Kentucky and New Jersey are required to take continuing education courses from Approved Providers. In Arkansas, Louisiana and North Carolina, engineers and surveyors are not required to take courses from Approved Sponsors, but if they do, they are assured that their PDH credits will be accepted by the Board.

As an approved continuing education provider, PDH Center (PDHcenter.com/PDHonline.org) maintains records of all online PDH activities for at least seven (7) years. Our records include the name of the attendee who satisfactorily completed the course, type of activity claimed, date of activity, instructor's name, sponsoring organization, and the PDH credits earned. Copies of these records may be requested by sending emails to PDHonline.org, Inc./PDH Center for audit verification purposes.

As an approved continuing education provider, PDH Center (PDHcenter.com/PDHonline.org) submits monthly or quarterly reports, including the names and license numbers of North Carolina PE & PLS, Florida PE & PLS, Tennessee PLS and Texas PLS completing the PDHonline courses during that month or quarter and the PDH credits earned, to the respective board of registration for professional engineers and surveyors. Florida, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas are the only four states that require reporting from the approved continuing education providers.

Note: Most states requiring CPC (CPD or PDH) do not pre-approve courses or providers (vendors), and leave the choice to the licensees. Click on FAQ for more information.
