Professional Development Hours & Continuing Education Units
Professional Development Hours (PDHs)
Participation in the 2017 EWB-USA Conference may earn you PDHs. PDHs are educational units used to fulfill continuing education requirements for licensure, certification, or tenure, for instance. In most cases, 1 hour of an event equals 1 PDH.
For Professional Engineers
The National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) maintains a state-by-state list of continuing professional development requirements as well as links to the state boards for more information.
Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
Terminology and education credit requirements and restrictions vary widely. All participants are responsible for checking with their license/certification authority to ensure that the technical presentations meet specific requirements. Attendees are responsible for maintaining the documentation for CEUs and PDHs.
CEU and PDH Credit Calculations:
1.0 CEU = 10 Hours of session time
1.0 PDH = 1 Hour of session time
1.0 Contact Hour = 1 Hour of session time
