Professional engineers who are licensed are required to maintain that licensure. Depending on the state of licensure, a certain number of continuing education/professional development hours are required to keep an active license to practice. For continuing education/professional development hours to be accepted by the licensure boards, they should be from an accredited provider such as AIA and eventually IACET (SFPE is in the process of becoming an IACET-accredited provider of continuing education).
ANSI/IACET is a universally accepted model for continuing education, nationally and internationally. IACET maintains an internationally recognized standard for continuing education and training. Credit earned under IACET’s accreditation are accepted as PDH’s for ongoing maintenance of licensure.
SFPE is currently a registered AIA Continuing Education Provider (Provider # G219). AIA credits are accepted by state licensure boards for credits toward ongoing maintenance licensure.
SFPE is an ICC Preferred Provide members of ICC who take SFPE registered courses
are able to submit their credits to ICC.
We are not yet an accredited provider because we have not gone through an accreditation process such as IACET. Being successful with IACET will make SFPE its own accredited provider. Our current status would be “Preferred Provider under AIA.”
