Professional Development Hours will be required for any certification. PDHs must be logged in two separate categories with the total number (or more) hours for the PDHs required. You will need to provide these hours to submit for renewal.  PDHs are not work hours.

Professional Development Hours (PDHs) should be corrosion related continuing education such as, but not limited to, courses, seminars, webinars, conferences, technical committee meeting, technical writings, reading of corrosion related technical papers and safety training.

It is best practice to record your PDHs in your Certification Portal, as you earn them to avoid delay in your recertification process, when the time comes. To store you PDHs, please login to your AMPP profile and click on "My Certification Portal" and then choose "Manage My PDHs" (the last link on the left).  By clicking on the "Add PDHs" tab you will be able to enter them as you complete them and have them stored inside your "Certification Portal".
