To say that things are still a little confusing for anyone who needs to take continuing education courses during COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is an understatement. Although some businesses and educational centers are reopening with restrictions, you may not feel comfortable attending in-person gatherings just yet. Additionally, depending on the number of cases in a given area, things can change quickly.
If you want to know whether you can complete your Utah Professional Engineer Continuing Education credits to stay up-to-date during COVID-19, the short answer is yes, you sure can!
The Process for Completing Continuing Education Courses During COVID-19 Is Easy and Convenient
Did you recently receive a renewal request notice sent by the Utah Division of Occupational & Professional Licensing (DOPL)? Typically, they send these out about two months ahead of time to let UT Professional Engineers know that it is time to complete their continuing education courses. If so, you need to make sure you mail back your completed renewal by the deadline to show you have done the 30 hours of qualified professional education. It’s important to note that completed renewals should be sent no later than March 31 every two years during odd-numbered years – which means the next deadline date is coming up on March 31, 2021.
With At Leisure Contractor Licensing, you don't have to worry about restrictions, lockdowns, or interrupting your work or home life schedule to make sure you have picked up essential new information in your field. For example, you can learn about things like ethics and how to improve or expand skills related to your professional practice. You can take self-paced online courses anytime, COVID-19 or otherwise, without worrying that you are missing any vital information.
