Pennsylvania Continuing Education Requirements for Licensed Professionals - Geologists- Engineers
Pennsylvania Continuing Education Requirements for Professional Geologists In Effect for 2011-2013 Renewal Period. B.F. Environmental Consultants and Web Design Pros has collaborated to provide affordable distance learning options.
The PA Governor, Governor Rendell, signed Act 25 of 2010 into law. Act 25 amends the Engineer, Land Surveyor and Geologist Registration Law to clarify mandatory continuing education ("CE") requirements. Under Section 4.5 of Act 25 requires that a licensee complete 24 professional development hour ("PDH") units during the biennial renewal period as a condition for licensure renewal.
A "PDH" is equivalent to 50 minutes of technical instruction or presentation relevant to the profession and the practice as a professional. This contact specially excludes training related to office management. Section 5 of Act 25 requires that a licensee begin to comply with the continuing education requirements during the current (2009-2011) renewal period and provides that the licensing board may begin denying licensure renewals during the 2011-2013 renewal period to any licensee that fails to accumulate the required 24 PDH units.
" In an e-newsletter sent to licensees on May 14, 2010, the State Registration Board for Engineers, Land Surveyors and Geologists initially indicated it did not intend to deny licensure renewals beginning in the 2011-2013 renewal period. However, in a special notice posted to the Board's website on May 28, 2010, the Board reversed its position, advising that the May 14, 2010 information is out of date and should be disregarded. The Board now advises that 24 PDH units will be required, "no ifs, ands or buts," by the September 30, 2011 renewal cycle."
