ALL CONFERENCE ATTENDEES WILL RECEIVE A CERTIFICATE OF PARTICIPATION VERIFYING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT HOURS

In recognition of the fact that an increasing number of professional engineering licensing bodies require members to pursue professional development on a formal basis, DFI provides a general Certificate of Participation for all programs. Currently this certificate is accepted by most state professional engineering licensing bodies as documentation of your pursuit of continuing education requirements. There are however some states that may not accept the general DFI Certificate. It is the responsibility of the individual to determine if hours provided by DFI events are accepted by their licensing body.

New York: Approved New York State Professional Development Hours are sought for all DFI events and are pending approval of their Review Board. Those individuals requiring NYS approved hours must follow the guidelines and procedures requested by the event administrators in order to qualify. The procedure typically includes the need to sign in and out on-site at the registration table in order to provide proof of your full attendance of the event. This procedure is subject to change based on NYS requirements.

Florida: DFI is an approved provider in the state of Florida. DFI's approval # is 4072 - valid from June 2011 through May 2013. Please make note for your records. Florida State registered professional engineers (P.E.’s) who wish to submit attendance of a DFI event as part of their Florida State license renewal MUST include their Florida State P.E. license number on their pre-registration form. Each event is treated separately so registering for one event with your license number does not register you for any subsequent events for Florida State licensing renewal. If you neglected to include this information for any DFI event registration, please contact the DFI headquarters office at staff@dfi.org or 973-423-4030 prior to the event you are attending.
