State Representatives Bill Blessing (R-Colerain) and Al Landis (R-Dover) today announced the passage of House Bill 236 by the Ohio House of Representatives. The legislation addresses professional development standards for professional engineers or surveyors.

House Bill 236 requires registered professional engineers and surveyors to complete at least two hours of professional development in professional ethics during the biennial period of registration renewal. The two hours is included in the thirty hours of training already outlined under current law.

“I am very happy to announce the passage of House Bill 236, which will require professional engineers and surveyors to complete ethics training as a part of their professional development registration renewal,” said Rep. Blessing. “This is a simple bill that will help to ensure professional engineers and surveyors are being made aware of the ethics and rules changes to their professions.”

The legislation has received support from the State Board of Registration for Professional Engineers and Surveyors and the Ohio Society of Professional Engineers, among other organizations.

“House Bill 236 is important legislation that bolsters professional development standards for engineers and surveyors in the state of Ohio,” said Rep. Landis. “The addition of ethics training to the professional development curriculum will keep our engineering and surveying community among the best and brightest in the industry.”

House Bill 236 will now head to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
