fbpelogo

Licensure renewal for the 2015-2017 biennium for Florida Board approved continuing education providers officially ended May 31, 2015.

If you did not renew during this last renewal period, you will need to contact the Board office at 850-521-0500, ext. 113 for assistance in renewing your Florida CE provider license.

 

***Important Provider Information About 2014 CE Requirements Rule Change***

 
Effective March 1, 2015,  Continuing Education (CE) Providers are required to update their Florida Laws and Rules Applications to include continuing education in Professional Ethics, if the provider plans to teach the one (1) hour of Ethics.  Please refer to Section 471.017, F.S. to review the changes to the continuing education requirements for professional engineers, and Rule 61G15-22.001, F.A.C. for continuing education provider requirements for Board approval.
 
Additionally, the FBPE will not be providing instructions for using the DBPR reporting tool.  With the commencement of the CE audit following renewal in 2013, CE providers are no longer required to report CE credits for engineers.  Since some providers have elected to report and others have not, it has caused a great deal of confusion for licensees.  Therefore, FBPE prefers that no providers report CE credits using the DBPR reporting tool but continue to provide certificates to licensees as required by rule.  If selected for an audit of CE, the licensee will provide the appropriate certificate to FBPE.

If you have any questions regarding CE provider renewal, please feel free to contact Nancy Wilkins at (850) 521-0500 ext. 113 or send an email to cedesk@fbpe.org.
 

Continuing Education Providers and Reporting

In the 2014 Florida Legislative session, Rule 61G15-22.008, Record Keeping, Florida Administrative Code, was changed to provide that 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.

For CE Providers, 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.
