Complete continuing education packages built specifically for engineers registered in the State of South Carolina. Designed to fulfill the entire continuing education requirement.

This package was designed specifically for South Carolina geotechnical engineers looking to satisfy all of the Professional Development Hours (PDH) required by the South Carolina State Board of Registration for Professional Engineers and Surveyors. Currently, engineers must obtain 30 hours of continuing education in each two-year license period. PDH courses should be relevant to the practice of engineering and may include technical, management and ethics topics.

Our South Carolina Geotechnical Engineering package contains a course on South Carolina rules and regulations and five technical courses that were selected for their ability to maintain, improve, or expand the skills and knowledge relevant to your area of practice.
