Engineers are by their nature inquisitive and live-long learners. Professional engineers (PEs) must be life-long learners if they want to maintain their professional licenses. After four (or more) years of college study, working under a PE for at least four years, and passing two intensive exams, the engineer can be granted a PE license from their state's licensing board. As required for retention of their licenses, PEs must continually maintain and improve their skills through continuing education. This paper provides an overview of the continuing education requirements for professional engineers and summarizes the specific requirements for the state of Georgia. The role of the Georgia Society of Professional Engineers (GSPE) in providing educational opportunities is described.
