The purpose of this article is to assist engineering managers in developing a better understanding of how to meet the number of professional development hours (PDHs) required by state engineering licensing boards in order to become a registered professional engineer. A study was conducted to identify the total number of PDH units for all engineers across the United States and individual state requirements. The article discusses the various methods that can be used by engineering managers to satisfy PDH units toward state engineering registration. State laws regulating professional development as well as particular engineering management focus areas are identified in this article.
