Almost all States have made it mandatory for licensed professionals to take continuing education courses as one of the requirements for renewing their license. Some State Boards call these courses Professional Development Hours or PDH courses. Some State Boards refer to them as Continuing Education courses or CE courses. For example, State Boards of Engineers call their courses Engineering PDH courses. State Boards of Contractors call them Contractors CE courses. There is no difference between PDH and CE. It is more of a preference of word or phrase. All PDH and CE hours require a minimum of 50 minutes of studying time.
These are the courses taken by the licensed PE Professional Engineers to renew their professional engineering licenses.
The term PDH stands for Professional Development Hour and CE stands for Continuing Education. They mean the same thing and are used interchangeably. Both abbreviations are used by different States. The term CE has been used for many other fields for continuing education. State Boards of Contractors, Architects, Land Surveyors, Geologists, and Interior Designers mostly use the term CE for their continuing education hours and requirements.
