Continuing professional competency requirements may be met without completing the entire renewal form if the licensee certifies in the appropriate section that all continuing professional competency and licensure requirements for Alabama have been met. Out-of-state land surveyors are required to meet the requirements of a course on professional standards as outlined in the state specific requirements below. Our guidelines/rules are close to the NCEES model. We recognize CPC programs for engineers in other jurisdictions when those programs are at least as strict as our own.
The responsibility of maintaining records which can be used to support credits claimed is the responsibility of the licensee. Records include but are not limited to (1) a lo showing the type of activity claimed, sponsoring organization, location, duration, instructor's or speaker's name, and PDH credits earned; (2) attendance verification records in the form of completion certificates, signed attendance receipts, paid receipts, a copy of a listing of attendees signed up by the sponsoring organization, or other documents supporting evidence of attendance. These records must be maintained for a period of four years and copies must be furnished, if requested, to the Board for audit verification purposes. These records should not be furnished with the renewal application.

Registrants who are residents of jurisdictions other than Wyoming must satisfy the CPC requirements of their resident jurisdiction. The requirements for Wyoming will be deemed as satisfied when a nonresident registrant provides evidence of having satisfied the requirements of their resident jurisdiction. If registrants reside in a jurisdiction that has no CPC requirements, the registrant must satisfy the requirements of Wyoming.
The responsibility of maintaining records to be used to support credits claimed is the responsibility of the registrant. Records required include, but are not limited to: (1) A log/diary showing the type of activity claimed, sponsoring organization, location, duration, instructor's or speaker's name, and CPC credits earned; (2) Attendance verification records in the form of completion certificates, receipts, or other documents supporting evidence of attendance; or (3) Records as maintained by a National Registry as approved by the Board. These records must be maintained for a period of three (3) years, and copies may be requested by the Board for audit verification purposes.
The Board has final authority with respect to approval of courses, credit, CPC value for courses, and other methods of earning credit.
All renewal applications will require the completion of a continuing education form specified by the Board outlining CPC credit claimed.
