GLEIC Continuing Education Policy


Each state has its own requirements for professional engineers' license renewal. Most states require professional engineers to complete a minimum number of continuing education hours. Continuing education hours should assist the engineer in maintaining or improving their skills in their area of expertise or professional practice. Most states allow the engineer to make the determination as to which events meet the requirements for continuing education.

For the specific requirements in your state, please consult your state's engineering licensing board or review your state's regulations on professional engineer licensing.


Record Keeping

Most states require licensed professional engineers to retain records or the training events used to meet their continuing education requirements. Advertisements and certificates of completion issued by the Great Lakes Environmental Infrastructure Center (GLEIC) provide all of the information necessary to meet these requirements. If, however, you are missing either a certificate of completion or required information for a specific training event, contact us and we will work with you to provide the necessary information.
The GLEIC recommends using this Continuing Education Hours Log Sheet to record the training details. Please verify the information required by your state and, if necessary, record any additional information that your state may require.


Webinar Policy

In order to receive a certificate of completion for attending a GLEIC webinar, individuals must meet both of the following requirements:

  • Be registered for the webinar through the GLEIC’s office or website. Registration needs to be completed before the end of the webinar. Each registration will include the applicable charges for the webinar, regardless of how many connections are used.
  • Have their attendance verified by filling out the sign-in form (shown below). This form will be available as a PDF download in the File Share pod at the beginning of the webinar. It must be signed and returned (email or fax)* within 24 hours of the webinar start time.

Recordings of Training Events

The GLEIC often produces recordings of webinars and conferences. However, the GLEIC only issues certificates for live events; the GLEIC does not issue certificates for watching recordings of webinars or training videos.
