Tennessee Land Surveyors

PDH Academy is currently not an approved provider.

Requirements: Continuing education reporting is now biennial (every two years). It is no longer necessary to report education at the end of each year, as long as you show your 30-hour total by the end of every renewal cycle. The current cycle ends on December 31, 2017.

A minimum of two (2) PDH’s shall be earned by successfully completing a course or activity that has content areas focused on surveying ethics and standards of practice.

If a licensee exceeds the biennial requirement in any renewal period, a maximum of fifteen (15) PDH’s may be carried forward to the subsequent renewal period.
