Amends 864 IAC 1.1-12-1 to revise the fee for engineering intern applicants. Amends 864 IAC 1.1-15 to allow certain activities to qualify for continuing education credit, to increase the amount of continuing education credit that an instructor at a continuing education course may receive, and to expand the extent to which continuing education courses may qualify for continuing education credit without Board approval.
