Are these places any good? These were 2 of the biggest sites I found when searching alternatives to get PDH hours. Both cost about $25-30 per PDH hour. So basically every 2 years for PA it would cost about $720 at the most (24 PDH x $30/PDH) + $50 renewal fee. I had planned on getting a master's in mechanical engineering and take my time (3-4 years part-time) at the same place I got my undergrad (Virginia Tech) but wanted to take a break since I finished my MBA in 2010. Advice?
As a company that helps thousands of engineers earn their professional license each year, EduMind, our parent company, understands the importance of continuing education and license renewal. EduMind, an International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) accredited company, provides a wide variety of continuing education courses for engineers who need to obtain PDH credits for license renewal. EduMind has a course library that contains more than 500 continuing education courses. Visit our course library here.
EB, NCEES has created a tracking tool that allows PEs to track their continuing education requirements. The online tracker also links to your state (s) of license and allows you to submit to your state for renewal. Below is the link for those interested: http://ncees.org/cpc/
Nearly all the states now require continuing education training to be completed to maintain your license. To those who don't have their license yet it is referred to as professional development hours or PDH for short. Of course there is not a standard agreed to by each state so many states have their own unique rules. There are a bunch of training sites on the internet and they generate lots of spam into your email advertising the training on their site. Some of them even track your training data, but only when you get the training from them. I was looking for a site that would track all training in one easy to enter the data location. I currently hold an engineering license in 9 states. It was becoming a huge effort to track the required PDH training that each state required so that I could do the license renewals in a minimal amount of time. I finally became bothered enough by it to create a website to do the tracking and printing of this training to save time with the submissions. It is totally free and does not sell any services. I am still working to improve it with users feedback but it is completely functional and I did successfully use it to file for professional engineering license renewals last December. It will get better over time but since I put the time in to make it work I thought it might be useful to others who need to record their training hours, or just want an easy place to store their license information. I enter my training data mostly using a smart phone or iPad but it works great from a PC too. You can record any type of training on it so it is not limited to just saving professional engineering training but the printouts and formats are tailored to be specific to the requirements for engineering license renewal submissions. It would be great if some of you could check out the site and let me know what you think. Also I would like to hear any suggestions you have to make tracking these items easier. It has been a good benefit to me so far and I think it can be a good time saver for others. The site link is: http://www.engineer-cloud.com Thanks.
