The policy for awarding Professional Development Hours (PDH)

Farmingdale State College is ABET accredited and is thereby recognized by NYSED for the issuance of PDH credit for professional engineers and architects. PDH are equal to the total hours attended for the course. Presenters will be eligible for PDH credit toward presentation times plus preparation time. The ratio is 1 part presentation to 2 parts preparation.

Professionals wishing PDH credit must sign in and sign out for proof of attendance during every scheduled class. Attendees must keep certification letters for six years and would produce the same if asked to do so during a NYSED licensee audit.

When registering be sure that you indicate you are interested in receiving PDHs.
