Continuing Education Provider RENEWAL
Current Continuing Education Providers with provider licenses will expire on May 31, 2015. You may renew your license online at www.myfloridalicense.com or can use the renewal forms located on this page.
If you choose to renew your license online, you will need to create an account or access an existing account. Once you have logged into your account you will find license and renewal information, fees and their breakouts, and have the ability to update your personal data, apply for additional licenses and renew. The renewal of your CE provider status does not renew the individual courses you offer.
You MUST notify the Board that you have renewed to ensure that the courses are updated with your renewal. To do this you can contact Nancy Wilkins, Continuing Education Licensure Analyst, at (850) 521-0500, ext. 113, or at [email protected].
Note that your license number is not the provider number assigned to you upon approval. Your license number is displayed on your renewal notice sent by DBPR. If you cannot locate your license number you can retrieve your license number by selecting “Verify a License” through www.myfloridalicense.com or contact our office at (850) 521-0500, ext. 113 for “Continuing Education.”
Rule on Continuing Education Providers and Reporting
Regardless of the recent rule change to 61G15-22.008, Record Keeping, Florida Administrative Code, where in engineer licensees are responsible for maintaining sufficient records demonstrating completion of qualifying professional development hours for at least two licensure cycles (four (4) years), all CE providers are still required to provide completion certificates to course participants.
Rule 61G15-22.012, Florida Administrative Code, states, in part:
61G15-22.012 Obligations of Continuing Education Providers. To maintain status as a continuing education provider, the provider must: (3) Furnish each participant with an individual certificate of attendance. An attendance record shall be maintained by the provider for four (4) years and shall be available for inspection by the Board and the Florida Engineers Management Corporation.
As a provider, you should be aware that you are obligated to provide certificates of completion to all course attendees and you are also required to maintain accurate records for four (4) years. Failure to comply with this rule may result in a loss of your provider license and the ability to provide continuing education courses to Florida engineers.
If you have any questions regarding the CE provider renewal process, please feel free to contact Nancy Wilkins at [email protected] or by calling FBPE’s office at (850) 521-0500.
It is our intent to work with Continuing Education Providers to resolve any and all issues. This is only achieved through active communication. We thank you in advance for your cooperation!
