AAWRE gets many inquiries and questions on how to obtain PDHs for annual recertifications for our Diplomates. A great primary way to obtain the continuing education is to attend an ASCE seminar or participate in a live ASCE Webinar. Here are some of the great activities that ASCE has lined up for water resources and environmental engineers:
