Earn PDHs

These courses are available for free to NSPE members to conveniently view from the comfort of your home or office. Viewers may earn credits by viewing the webinars and passing a quiz. Upon successful completion of each session quiz with a passing score of 70% or higher, the quiz taker will receive an attendance certificate with the appropriate credits (PDHs) earned for that session. PDHs are recognized by most U.S. states including Florida.

Since states have varying requirements on what is accepted, NSPE has put together a chart of state continuing education requirements for professional engineers.

All available courses include the opportunity to complete a quiz that, upon successful completion, will earn you an attendance certification that indicates the appropriate Professional Development Hours (PDHs) earned. PDHs from the NSPE free courses are recognized by most U.S. states including Florida. (We are approved for both general and ethics PDH in Florida.)
