The information presented on this page, specifically related to Certificates of Authorization, is outdated. A change in Florida statutes in 2019 did away with Certificates of Authorization, replacing them with a free registry. For more information, please see the Engineering Firms page. This article remains online because of Florida Sunshine laws.
The deadline to renew your Florida Professional Engineer license or your firm’s Certificate of Authorization is just around the corner. Renewal ends on Feb. 28, 2019.
- WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON’T RENEW BY FEB. 28?
- All current and active Florida Professional Engineer licenses and Certificates of Authorization will become delinquent after Feb. 28, 2019. If you failed to renew your Florida PE license or Certificate of Authorization in 2017 and it is currently delinquent, it will become null and void after Feb. 28, 2019.
- CONTINUING EDUCATION DEADLINE IS FEB. 28, TOO
- Professional Engineers must complete 18 hours of continuing education by Feb. 28, 2019. You are required to have one hour of Florida laws and rules and one hour of professional ethics, both from a Board-approved provider; four hours related to your area of practice; and 12 hours related to any topic pertinent to the practice of engineering.
