PDH Academy Meets Maryland Board for Professional Engineers Requirements
According to the Maryland Board for Professional Engineers, licensees need 24 PDH units per reporting period, and PDH Academy meets them. The requirements are broken down as follows:
- No fewer than 18 PDH units in Category A programs to include at least 1 PDH unit in standards of practice, care, regulations, and laws for Maryland engineers or professional ethics for engineers.
