ONLINE Renewal Process with IPLA

The Indiana Professional Licensing Agency implemented an online renewal system that some find a bit challenging.  To help you navigate this system, Dr. Vince Drnevich put together a slide presentation that walks you through what to expect as you renew your license.

Continuing Education

  • All Indiana PEs must earn 30 hours of continuing education every two years - one hour must be in Ethics and one must be in Statutes and Standards.
  • Courses must be either provided by an organization referenced in IC 25-1-4-0.2 OR approved by the Board. To search for a list of Board approved providers, follow this link, then enter "Engineering Board" for Profession and "CE Provider - Engineering" for License Type.  NSPE and ISPE are both approved providers in statute. 
  • Engineers may carryover up to 15 CEs from one renewal period to the next.
  • Engineers who become licensed in the first year of a renewal period only need to earn 15 hours; those licensed for the first time in the second year do not need to earn any hours in that renewal period.
