Georgia PDH Credits
The State Board of Registration for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors (the Board) manages engineering licensure in Georgia. Georgia engineers renew their license every two years; all engineering licenses are renewed on December 31st of even years. During each renewal period, engineers are required to complete 30 PDH hours. Continuing education credits above this amount can be carried over to the next period, up to a maximum of 15 hours. Georgia engineering rules do not require ethics or state law courses as part of their continuing education requirements. Courses on these topics are accepted for CPC credit.
The Georgia Board allows professional engineers to renew their license online. Engineers are required to certify that they met the continuing education requirements, but it is not necessary to submit documentation during the renewal process. The Board randomly audits professionals to verify their CEUs. The licensee must provide acceptable proof of course completion if requested by the Board.
