Ahh I just noticed mine has the same typo! Too bad we won't be able to keep them for posterity.

My certificate has the "typo" too ("Civil Engineer Engineering"). I'm guessing they were auto generated and there was a spot where someone was supposed to type "civil" and accidentally typed "civil engineer". I don't know if anyone else noticed, but the letter that accompanied the certificate also in several places refers to my "civil engineer engineer" license.

I guess this isn't as bad as the time that PA send out a bunch of EIT certificates by mistake to students that passed the FE but had not graduated yet and then sent them a letter a week later demanding that they return them or face penalty. At least we got the correct certificate.

I am sort of glad that there is a typo and we get to return the ones we have received.

I was very unhappy when I opened the mailbox and saw that it was all bent.

I would suggest the board writing on the envelope "do not bend", to guarantee that we receive our certificates in good shape.

Wow, that is so PA! When did this happen?

If I remember correctly, if was after the spring 2011 exam cycle. Several of my friends had taken the FE that cycle as juniors in college and received the EIT certificates after their exam results notices.

Head's up, everyone! I got the letter containing the instructions for the typo-ed certificates yesterday. I haven't opened it yet, but will when I get home tonight.

Probably something along these lines...

So what is the mail saying. I haven't got any letter about the typo.

It says the following:

"Dear ________,

This is to inform you that the Professional Civil Engineer certificate mailed to you June 22, 2017, inadvertently had errors. Please return the old certificate to the Board. Upon receipt, a corrected copy of your wall certificate will be mailed to you. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Sincerely,

Richard B. Morre, P.L.S.

Executive Director"

 

I just dropped my typo-ed certificate in the mail today! We'll see when I get the replacement.

"You can expect a replacement certificate in 8-10 weeks."

:P

FYI, I received both my corrected wall certificate and my plastic wallet card (two separate mailings) at the end of last week.

Nice, @JJ_structural! I got my plastic card thing (thanks for the reminder that I need to sign it, haha), but am still waiting on the corrected certificate.

My old (incorrect) wall certificate was delivered back to the Board on Friday July 7th if that help to figure out when to expect yours.

Still waiting on license # 

I sent my application package by fedex that arrived at their office july 13th.  Have been refreshing the license lookup daily ever since.

How long does it usually take to receive the license?

No clue.  I sent my stuff in on May 26th and I'm still waiting for them to issue my license #.

If you both are referring to sending back the certificates with the typos in it and waiting to receive a corrected certificate, those are processed regularly and no longer than two weeks out.

If you are referring to other situations, email me at ric.moore@dca.ca.gov with the specifics of your situation and I'll check on it.
