Professional Credits

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) from The University of Texas at Austin may be awarded. CEUs are standardized units of nonacademic credit that are nationally recognized. Certain licensing agencies and many employers acknowledge CEUs as a way to record professional training.

The following licensing agencies have approved PETEX courses for professional development credits for their Texas members:


  • The American Association of Petroleum Landmen grants credits for Petroleum Fundamentals, Elementary Drilling, The Rig School-Introduction to Offshore Operations, and Pipeline Technology courses.
  • The Texas Department of Public Accountancy awards CPEs for The Rig School-Introduction to Offshore Operations, Petroleum Fundamentals, and Elementary Drilling. No prerequisites are required on any of these courses.
  • The Texas Department of Insurance awards CEs for The Rig School-Introduction to Offshore Operations and Petroleum Fundamentals courses. To be awarded CEs, there is an added $25 administration fee to be paid at the time of enrollment.
  • The Texas State Bar grants 2.75 hours of MCLEs for The Rig School-Introduction to Offshore Operations course.

The number of hours awarded for the successful completion of a course is listed in each course description. If you are a member of a professional organization from a state other than Texas or in a foreign country, your organization might award professional credits based on these Texas approvals. For more information, contact us.


Texas Professional Engineers (P.E.) Continuing Educational Requirements All Texas Professional Engineers (P.E.) are required to have proof of 15 hours of continuing education activity for annual license renewal. The Texas Board of Professional Engineers (TBPE) does not require official documentation upon license renewal but does maintain the final authority to audit and review licensee’s renewal information. However, the TBPE requests that licensees keep records documenting their continuing education activities for three years.

PETEX offers:

  • Continuing Education Units (CEUs): Upon successful completion of a PETEX course, you will earn a specified number of CEUs, credit customarily used for continuing education courses. To meet the minimum annual continuing education activity requirement, Texas P.E.s need to earn 1.5 CEUs, including one hour (or 0.1 CEU) of professional ethics training.
  • Documention: PETEX provides a Completion Certificate detailing the course title, dates attended, and amount of CEUs earned. If further documentation is required, PETEX can assist you.
