|Continuing Education Committee|
Professional engineers licensed in New York State are required to complete a minimum of 36 hours of continuing education during each three-year license registration period (in accordance with the requirements of Article 145, Section 7211 of the New York State Education Law). This includes one hour of professional ethics taken as either a course or educational activity for registration periods beginning August 1, 2011 and after.
Maintaining and enhancing the professional development of civil engineers has long been an important part of the mission of ASCE. The Met Section is an Approved New York State Education Department Sponsor Number #6. As such, the Met Section evaluates all technical lectures and seminars presented by its groups and committees in accordance with the requirements of the New York State Education Department.
