ASCE Professional Development Hours
Remember that the State of Alaska requires each licensed engineer to complete 24 PDHs every 2 years. That equates to one PDH each month. Luckily for you, ASCE has monthly luncheons that each count as one PDH, making it easy to accrue your required 24. Your lunch receipt serves as your PDH documentation.
Additionally, ASCE members receive the benefit of access to five free one-hour on-demand webinars annually. Learn more at www.asce.org/freepdh.
Each year members of the ASCE Anchorage Branch volunteer to share their knowledge and experience to help younger engineers prepare for their Principles and Practices Exam.
