CPD Audits

Continuing Professional Development Audits

Registrants must obtain 30 professional development hour (PDH) units during each biennial registration period. In accordance with Oregon Administrative Rules (OAR) 820-010-0635 and OAR 820-015-0026, each registrant is charged with the responsibility of maintaining records of the PDH units acquired for the biennial renewal schedule.  

3% of active registrants from each discipline (PE, PLS, RPP, CWRE) are randomly selected for audits every January and July. 
Audited registrants are notified by mail that they must submit supporting documents from the previous biennial registration period for the PDH units.  Registrants have 1 month to respond to this notice.
