Continuing Education - Both Courses Revised and Updated in 2014

The Indiana State Board of Registration for Professional Engineers implemented Rules for Continuing Education Requirements in 2010 and updated them in 2014 (See Rule 15, beginning on page 61 of SBRPE Compilation). These rules require: At least one (1) hour of the continuing education required in each biennium shall be in ethics applicable to the practice of professional engineering and at least one (1) hour of the continuing education required in each biennium shall be in Indiana statutes and rules applicable to the practice of professional engineering.

Both courses below now include a video of the presenter inset with the slides.
