About 26 years.  Graduated college in Dec. '88.  Passed FE in mid '90's but failed PE twice shortly after that.  Finally got the nerve to take it again in April 2014 (Electrical - Power/Alabama) and passed.  In the process of establishing my NCEES record and will pursue PE(s) by comity in adjacent state(s).  Just turned 48 in July 2014.
