FBPE renewal rules change


As you know all current licenses will expire at midnight on February 28, 2017, all Florida Professional Engineers must complete a total of eighteen (18) continuing education (CE) course hours from a Board-Approved Continuing Education Provider in order to renew their licenses. Of the 18 hours, one (1) hour must be related to the Florida laws and rules of professional engineers, one (1) hour must relate to Florida professional ethics, and the remaining 16 hours can relate to any topic pertinent to the practice of engineering.

For license renew for the 2015-2017 biennium the Board will require that you "attest" to the completion of your 16-hours of continuing education. You will not need to prove that you earned the credits in the event you are audited. This means you will not need to submit your Certificates of Completion or list your completed courses and you will not have to wait for your CE provider reported credits to appear on your DBPR page in order to renew. 
The reporting of CE credits is not required of Providers. Each licensee must maintain proof of CE credits earned for a minimum of two renewal cycles (four years). As stated in Rule 61G15-22.006, to demonstrating compliance, the Florida Board of Professional Engineers will audit at random a number of licensees each biennium to assure that the continuing education requirements are met. 

PEcredits.com will maintain you completed courses indefinitely and you will always be able to login to your account and print any of your completed course certificates.
