Professional Development Hours (PDHS) at The Steel Conference

Earn PDHs

Attendees earn one professional development hour (PDH) for each hour of participation at a technical session at The Steel Conference  (One PDH is equivalent to 0.1 CEU). Additionally, AISC is a Registered Provider with The American Institute of Architects Continuing Education System (AIA/CES), and some sessions are approved for AIA continuing education credit (LU or LU/HSW). You can find information on all of the AIA approved sessions here. Some industry and business focused sessions may not align with the PDH criteria for licensure requirements and have been assigned Attendance credit (AU).  Session credit information (PDH, LU, LU/HSW and AU) can be found in the program and in The Steel Conference mobile app.  It is ultimately up to the individual to determine whether or not the content of a session meets the requirements for his or her particular licensure.  In all cases, the credits earned will be noted on the attendee’s certificate. 

A numeric session-specific code will be given during each session so only those who participate will have access to the code. It is critical that you keep track of your session codes as this is the only way you will be able to obtain your credits. For your convenience, you can keep track of the codes on the inside back cover of this final program or in The Steel Conference mobile app. 

Registering PDHs

Register your credit hours on the mobile app or at Alternatively, there will be two credit recording stations located on Level 2 across from Room 260. Following submission of the corresponding codes, you can download or email yourself a PDF of your certificate. If you’re having trouble registering your credits,  contact us at
