Frequently Asked Questions - Certificates, Recordkeeping and Reporting

No, Florida only requires that you attest that you have completed the necessary continuing education course work before your renew your license. You should keep records in the event that you are audited.

As an approved sponsor, PDHLibrary.com is required to maintain your course activity records for a specific period of time in the States of Florida and North Carolina. However, you are ultimately responsible for tracking and maintaining all your course activity records for the remaining states. To aid you in record keeping, PDHLibrary.com saves your certificates for your convenience under the "Courses Taken" tab in the "My Account"  area.

In addition, it is the policy of PDHLibrary.com.com to maintain your records for a 10-year period which exceeds the requirements of any State Licensing Board. 

PDHLibrary.com will use your personal information internally as follows: 

  • to generate and submit your “Certificate of Completion” online each time you pass a course quiz.
  • 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).

As a proof of completing your course, PDHLibrary.com will provide you with a “Certificate of Completion”.

This certificate is available at any time simply by clicking "My Account - Courses Taken".

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.

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>

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
