Not to burst anyone's bubble but this happened last administration also and the board did not upload any new license once it was back up. That said I hope this is different as I'm hoping to see if I passed the survey portion.

I think they are updating the database, but probably to reflect those who passed the PE in Electrical, Mechanical, etc where state specific tests were not required.

schrun, you did burst my bubble! lol But that's ok, I'll still keep the look-up page open all day. It still might mean something... maybe they are preparing for a Friday (12-23) release? I know it won't matter in the end but, because it matters now - lol, how many days after the search function was reinstated were the new PEs shown in the data base last time? Thanks.

If I remember right, last time the database said something like "Updating-please check back later" for a while. Then when that went away, there were no new PE's in the database. Then the next day, they updated it without it going down at all. This looks different. Maybe their website really just crashed.

Also, last time they said "by the 10th", and the new PE's showed up in the database on the afternoon of the 10th (or whatever day it was). I don't know if that means they will update the database on the 30th, but they might. It kinda changes things that the 30th lands during the holidays, so who knows what days these government employees will be working to actually update the database.

Thanks slc. That's funny, because now this is what the screen reads:

License lookup is temporarily unavailable during maintenance. We apologize for this inconvenience.

Well it's not clear yet, but based on the available information, I believe they have re-routed the flux capacitor in order to accelerate database transfer over the ether.

These two examples from engineerseals.com have a letter in front:

Last year's people, when you get the certificate, does it have the type letter (M,E,C, etc) as a prefix to the lic. number?

I've already started calling myself a PE and added it to my e-mail signature since my boss and a few other PEs told me to, but I'm still anxious to get the license # so that I can get reimbursed for the exam fee.

The database actually does display a letter code. M for mechanical, E for electrical, etc.

I see, thanks. Yeah, having the extra tests really blows. For me it cost me a year delay on my PE. Having a wife, young baby, house, rental property, full time job (thankfully!), etc., I just couldn't study for all three at once so I did one at a time. That's an extra year and an extra $275 x 2! The Seismic was the worst (that's why I put it off for last - lol). Survey = easy, 8 hour = medium, Seismic = hard (IMHO).

Yeah, I don't think you can call yourself a P.E. till you receive your license number. The California Board has to certify that you met all requirements, i.e. pass the exam, pass the take home, ...etc. This is probably why the database hasn't been updated yet.

Careful Lando, without a license number you are not a PE yet, you're breaking the law.

good point, but don't they do all that before we are allowed to sit for the exam? I wonder if anyone has ever passed the exam, but was denied a license. That would be very cruel.

Better than having a client try to verify you're licensed and find that you're not...
