    Since the question always comes up please consider including the times of release (in eastern) along with the state for future tracking purposes.

    I have some good and bad news friends. Bad news is that Vee is in it for a 4th time. But it’s ok. The good news is that I’m 2 weeks away from finishing my masters. And I have some even better news: I’m leaving the senate at the end of the month and I’ve accepted an amazing engineering job back in New England and start in January. I will be doing design work and it will be so wonderful to actually “study” at work simply by doing work. There’s too many good things happening to me right now to be upset about this exam. And I do think working as an engineer will help me a lot for attempt #4!! I’ll be focused, not trying to do a million things at once, and I’m going to be making so much more money!!

    “Hi, I’m Sarah McLachlan, will you be an angel for a helpless engineer? Every day, innocent engineers are mentally abused and neglected, and they’re crying out for help. Please, NCEES, a few keystrokes could save a life. For just one exam release from October, you’ll help rescue engineers from themselves, and provide resolution, confidence, and love. Call or join online in the next thirty minutes and you’ll receive this welcome kit with the photo of an enginner pressing F5 right now. One has been given a second chance. Thanks to you. Right now There’s an engineer who needs you. Your call says ‘I’m here to help.’ Please call right now.”

    At some point over the next month many of you will find out that you passed the PPE exam. Congratulations! Passing the PPE is a major accomplishment that takes 8+ years of work and sacrifice. I'm certain you'll be excited; you should celebrate! But first I need to tell you: DO NOT IMMEDIATELY ADD PE AFTER YOUR NAME! Wait until you are actually licensed. I am not trolling! I am not trying to take away your accomplishments! I am not trying to kill your buzz! I want to keep you out of trouble. Just because you passed the PPE exam does not mean that you are a professional engineer*. Only someone with a current PE license is a professional engineer and can use the postnominal “PE”. ** Every jurisdiction has laws and/or regulations governing who may offer their engineering services to the public. To claim that you are a professional engineer, when you lack a license is false representation. There are civil penalties associated with claiming to be a PE without a license, and it may prevent you from getting licensed in the future! The rules and enforcement vary from state to state. But it’s better to just wait until you officially have a license. So how long do you need to wait? It varies by state, and it can range from hours to months to officially get your license. It could be longer if you took the test before satisfying the experience requirement, but you probably knew that already. When is it official? It varies from state to state. But the consensus is that you are official when you find yourself in the state engineer license lookup with a current license. You will certainly be listed there before they send you an email or mailed envelope. Once it’s official, go ahead and add those letters after your name! What do I tell my boss, clients, colleagues in a big meeting, proposal, C.V., etc? You have to be ethical about this. You still can’t claim to be a PE until you are licensed, and you can’t imply that you can stamp things right now either. The easy and safe thing is to say that you passed the PPE (or PE exam), but are awaiting license from the state. Other PE’s will know that the hardest part is over, you’re basically in the club, but it’s just a formality of getting through the bureaucracy. However the subtlety may be lost on others, like clients and non-engineer bosses, so don’t leave people with the impression that you can stamp something currently in that jurisdiction. One other note about adding PE after your name. The physical address in your signature, business cards, etc should match where you are licensed to practice. This goes back to falsely representing yourself. If your business card says, for example, DC, but you are licensed only in Virginia, then you are falsely representing yourself as a licensed engineer in DC. If that same business card adds that you are only licensed in Virginia, then you are not falsely representing yourself. Of course if you have a license in both jurisdictions, then you are not falsely representing yourself. The same principle applies when trying to get business outside the state/jurisdiction of the license; you have to make it clear where you are actually licensed.Engineers get in trouble for this sort of thing all the time. So be careful. The NSPE website has dozens of ethics case studies on this sort of thing available for reading. tl;dr wait until you actually have a PE license before adding PE after your name *For simplicity I use the title professional engineer or PE in this thread, but depending on the state or jurisdiction, the term may be: engineer, licensed engineer, licensed professional engineer etc. For the purposes of this discussion, all terms are interchangeable. ** PE and P.E. are interchangeable. There is no legal difference. The use/non-use of periods are personal preference. Can a mod please sticky this.

    So I just got off the phone with the CA office (finally got a hold of somebody). The lady said they are working on the Land Surveyors first and sending those out now. She said she doesn't know for sure if they will get to the the PE results by today but tomorrow is more likely
