Pursuant to Rule 61G15-22.011, Florida Administrative Code, only Board-approved providers may offer the Florida Laws & Rules course and credit.

To qualify as a Board-approved provider, a provider applicant must:

  • Submit an application to FBPE for approval to provide the continuing education course along with the fee (see CE Provider Application at right); or
  • Be registered as a continuing education provider with the Registered Continuing Education Program of the American Council of Engineering Companies.

For current Board-approved continuing education providers interested in adding a Florida Laws & Rules course to their program, please complete the CE Laws & Rules Provider Application (at right), and submit it to the Board office. If you have any questions about the application, please contact the Board office at (850) 521-0500 ext. 113, or email cedesk@fbpe.org.


In order to maintain status as a continuing education provider, CE providers must renew their application and courses each biennium.

Refer to Rule 61G15-22.014, F.A.C., Duration of Provider Status, which states:

“(1) Continuing education providers are only approved for the biennium during which they applied and must reapply for provider status at the beginning of each biennium. The biennium for continuing education providers ends on May 31st of each odd-numbered year.

(2) A provider must reapply for approval ninety (90) days prior to the expiration date of provider status in order to prevent a lapse in provider status.”

CE course approval is also only valid for the biennium during which it was approved, provided no substantial change is made in the course and the approval status of the provider has not expired or been suspended or revoked. Substantial changes made in any course require the provider to obtain a new approval of that course from FBPE. A provider must reapply for course approval 90 days prior to the date of the end of the biennium, which would be the expiration of course approval in order to prevent a lapse in course approval.

Please note that renewal of the CE provider’s status does not renew the individual courses offered. The CE provider must notify the Board that their provider renewal has been completed to ensure that the courses are updated with the renewal date.


Beginning with the 2023-2025 biennium, providers of the Florida laws and rules courses must report the results of Professional Engineers completing their courses. All other CE providers are not required to report CE credits for engineers directly to FBPE, though providers must provide certificates to licensees as required by rule.

Laws and rules certificates must be reported through the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulations’ online provider reporting portal using a DBPR online services account at MyFloridaLicense.com.

The Board is in the process of revising rules regarding CE reporting. After two renewal periods during which too many PEs were failing the audit, Florida statutes required that PEs must start reporting their certificates. Because the Florida laws and rules course can only be offered by Board-approved providers, those providers must report completions of their course by Florida PEs.

CE providers are required to provide completion and attendance certificates to course participants/licensees, and maintain those records for a period of four years. Licensees must use the NCEES CPC Tracking system to report their CE certificates to FBPE once all 18 hours of continuing education have been completed. Instructions on using NCEES CPC Tracking are available on our website.

The current statutes and rules relating to engineering can be found on the Statutes and Rules page under the Legal section of this website.

License renewal for the 2023-25 biennium for FBPE-approved continuing education providers closed May 31, 2023. CE providers that did not renew by that date will need to renew to provide CE courses for Florida PEs.

If you did not renew during the previous renewal period, you will need to contact the Board office at (850) 521-0500, ext. 113, for assistance in renewing your Florida CE provider license.
