The Certificate of Authorization and PE license renewal deadline was June 30, 2018. All PEs who renew after this date need to complete a CPC audit. You can find our CPC guidelines here. Please note the following: 

Licensees who are residents of jurisdictions other than Delaware shall meet the CPC requirements of their resident jurisdiction. If the licensee resides in a jurisdiction that has no continuing professional competency (CPC) requirement, or the licensee is exempt from the CPC requirement in the licensee's resident jurisdiction, the licensee must meet the requirements of Delaware.
