Information About Professional Development Hours


An increasing number of professional engineering licensing organizations require members to pursue professional development on a formal basis. DFI is pleased to provide a general Certificate of Participation for all its technical programs. This certificate is accepted by most licensing boards and serves as documentation of your pursuit of continuing education credits. There are some states that may not accept the general DFI certificate. Attendees are responsible for determining whether DFI PDHs are accepted by their respective licensing board. For this course, an estimated 20.5 general PDHs are offered.


NEW! For New York State Licensed Engineers:

The New York State Educational Department now certifies the PDHs earned by attendees at DFI’s conferences, seminars and workshops. At this time, there are no special documentation requirements from NYSED for course presenters and attendees.
