In 1979, Iowa became the first state in the country to have mandatory continuing education for professional engineers and land surveyors.
It is both Iowa law and administrative rules which govern the continuing education requirements. The law is a simple one. Basically, all the law states is that there shall be mandatory continuing education for licensed professionals. The law left it up to the various licensing boards to determine through administrative rules how the law should be implemented.

WHAT ARE THE CURRENT CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS?
Iowas rules require 30 professional development hours (PDH) every two years in order to maintain the license to practice engineering or land surveying.
The requirements must be satisfied during the biennium prior to registration renewal.
