Our website was built on one foundation: ease of use! We didn't integrate a random course player from a 3rd-party. Instead, our software is custom built to offer you the best user experience possible. To catch a glimpse of our course player, and learn about its benefits, click here.
We didn't take the cheap route; we paid for a professional reader in a studio to provide you with optional audio narration. No computer voice. No echo. Just a soft, pleasant voice to read to you, if you choose.
Don't have time to finish your course(s) in one sitting? Don't worry about it. Our "bookmark" feature will automatically save your progress down to the exact location - so all you have to do is click "resume" when you're ready to continue on.
Access your account and complete your course(s) from any Internet-enabled device, any time, any place.
Some of our competitors only grant you 30 days access to your course. When you enroll in our continuing education courses, you gain more than enough time to complete your course (4 months, to be exact). However, should you need more time, we'll make it happen! Our world-class customer support team is standing by to ensure your experience is as positive as it can be.
Renewing your license can sneak up on you, leaving you to rush to complete your continuing education at the last minute. We have a solution for you; our license management tools! Free with your account, simply add your license expiration date, and choose when you want to be notified. Our system will automatically notify you that your license is coming due for renewal. Choose between email and/or text notification.
You don't need to be a computer expert to use our platform. Our entire site was built with the comprehension that "ease of use" is rule number one. Still, you may decide you want some help, and we are a quick phone call away. We receive a LOT of positive feedback for our customer support, so rest assured, you're in good hands.
Courses are not timestamped. Try us out, and if you are not satisfied with the experience, you will receive a full refund as long as you have not completed the course!
Beginning with the 2018 license renewal, the Department of Business and Professional Regulation will be moving the Construction Industry Licensing Board & Electrical Contractors' Licensing Board to a paperless licensing system. If you have any questions, please contact the DBPR Customer Contact Center at (850) 487-1395, as agents are fully equipped to handle any inquiries.
Paperless licensing adds value for our licensees in the following ways:
- They will now have the ability to print licenses "on demand" rather than waiting for a license to be mailed. This is true for both new applications as well as renewals, and will allow them to get their license faster and get to work more quickly.
- Licensees will never have to pay for a duplicate license again, saving them money.
- A licensee can print multiple copies of their license, giving them more flexibility.

For instructions on self-printing, please click here.

The FBPE will not be providing instructions for using the DBPR reporting tool. With the commencement of the CE audit following renewal in 2013, CE providers are no longer required to report CE credits for engineers. Since some providers have elected to report and others have not, it has caused a great deal of confusion for licensees. Therefore, FBPE prefers that no providers report CE credits using the DBPR reporting tool but continue to provide certificates to licensees as required by rule. If selected for an audit of CE, the licensee will provide the appropriate certificate to FBPE.
If you have any questions regarding CE provider renewal, please feel free to contact the Board office (850) 521-0500 ext. 113, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The FBPE shall require a demonstration of continuing professional competency of engineers as a condition of license renewal or re-licensure. Every licensee must complete 9 continuing education hours for each year of the license renewal period, totaling 18 continuing education hours for the license renewal period. For each renewal period for such continuing education:
- One hour must relate to Chapter 471 and the rules adopted under the chapter.
- One hour must relate to professional ethics.
- Four hours must relate to the licensee’s area of practice.
- The remaining hours may relate to any topic pertinent to the practice of engineering.
The provider must maintain all attendance records for at least four (4) years after the date of the offering of each course or the receipt of documentation for completion of a home study or interactive distance learning course. See Rule 61G15-22.012, FAC.
