Florida Board of Professional Engineers (FBPE)
Continuing Education Requirements:
Engineers are required to take 18 hours of approved continuing education, which includes the following:
- (1 hour) Laws & Rules (L&R)
- (1 hour) Professional Ethics (Ethics)
- (4 hours) Areas of Practice (AOP) - (1 hour) of this AOP requirement must be an FBC Advanced Course if the licensee is involved in design of buildings or structures covered by the FBC
- (12 hours) Any topic pertinent to the practice of Engineering
The 2-year renewal cycle ends February 28th of ODD numbered years.
Our course offerings include:
- AOP: All of our online courses, whether purchased individually or as a package, are approved for Florida Board of Professional Engineer’s Area of Practice (AOP) Credit.
- Advanced: Two of our courses are approved as FBC “Advanced” Courses and contain the description of “Advanced” in the course title. Both of these courses will meet your FBC "Advanced" course requirements.
- Ethics: Our "Ethics in Professional Engineering (1-Hour)" online course has been approved by the FBPE to meet the Ethics CE requirement.
- L&R: NONE of our courses are approved for Florida Board of Professional Engineer’s Laws & Rules (L&R)
You may choose your CE courses as a 14-hour package that most closely reflects your area of practice by using the CILB, ECLB or BCAIB 14-hour packages. Courses can also be purchased individually. The "Ethics in Professional Engineering (1-Hour)" course is only available as a single course and is not included in any of the 14-hour packages.
All of our CE courses have been approved by other boards as well, and meet their requirements. If you hold multiple licenses you may be able to receive CE credits from more than one board while only taking one CE course. Please refer to "Course Approval Numbers" for the specific boards and approval numbers applicable to each course.
Upon successful completion of each online CE course, you will be able to print a hard copy completion certificate to keep for your records. FBPE no longer requires electronic reporting of CE hours to the DBPR. Licensees must retain certificates for random audits.
