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).



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.
