“Additionally, the FBPE will not be providing instructions for using the DBPR reporting tool.  With the commencement of the CE audit following renewal in 2013, CE providers are no longer required to report CE credits for engineers.  Since some providers have elected to report and others have not, it has caused a great deal of confusion for licensees.  Therefore, FBPE prefers that no providers report CE credits using the DBPR reporting tool but continue to provide certificates to licensees as required by rule.  If selected for an audit of CE, the licensee will provide the appropriate certificate to FBPE.”
