Certificates, Recordkeeping and Reporting

When I print the certificate the signature disappears. What can I do?

Your browser is probably set to NOT print background images. Simply click "file", then click on "page setup". Then check the box for "print background images". Your certificate should now print the signature correctly.

Alternatively click on the "PDF Version" to create a PDF file of your certificate of completion which can then be saved to your computer. This version of the certificate will always print out the signature.

Where do I find my reported PDH hours for the State of Florida?

Engineers are now expected to save their certificates of completion. If you are audited, you provide them with copies of your certificates of completion.

  • to provide your state engineering licensing board with pertinent information (as required by certain states).
  • to notify you periodically of new courses or specific course discounts being offered (optional).

Currently there are not any states that require reporting. About two years ago FBPE requested that providers stop reporting PDH hours for Florida licensed engineers. So we are no longer reporting.

Make sure to save pdf copies of your certificates of completion to your computer so that you can simply email them in the event that you are audited by a state you are licensed in.p>

Does maintain records of my course activities?

However, you are ultimately responsible for tracking and maintaining all your course activity records for the remaining states. To aid you in record keeping, saves your certificates for your convenience under the "Courses Taken" tab in the "My Account"  area.

Do I submit the “Certificate of Completion” to my State Licensing Board?

The only time you need to submit your “Certificate of Completion” to your State Licensing Board is when: 

  • You are required to do so as part of the license renewal process or
  • You are being audited
  • The state of Florida has discontinued reporting of hours to the state. The only course that needs to be reported is the "Advanced Florida Building Code" course. To report that course email your certificate of completion to
