    EIT License

    I never bought mine because its not required to do so, but I believe its about $70. You can purchase it anytime before you take the PE. Once you become a PE, you cant buy the EIT certificate. But I'd call the state to verify this. Congrats on passing!

    NCEES Review for Work Experience

    Also if anyone can help me on the following question regarding applications: On Form 4 which asks you to check off the disciplines in which majority of your work experience was in - does this in any way effect the PE discipline that you want to take? I've worked on numerous disciplines for various projects so I don't know how many to check off? Maybe limit it to 3?

    NCEES Review for Work Experience

    @NY-Computer-EngineerI didnt know they ask for revisions on our work experience applications? I thought they review the application all at once and either approve or reject. Im not familiar with the review process so just wondering what should I expect. Also I thought NY takes 1-2 months to review.
  4. @Bobbybuddythank you so much for your detailed study plan + advice! Will definitely refer back to this thread when I am ready to start preparing. Although I am wondering if the Unit Conversion book you mentioned should be used when studying for the cbt. I would assume I'd need to memorize conversions rather than relying on a book. I cant remember if the ncees reference manual had unit conversions?

    Oct 2018 Environmental

    Thanks! I def will wait a few months to see how others did on the cbt version. I still plan on taking SOPE courses though. Did you by any chance take this course? If so, did you take the live classes or on-demand? Im leaning towards on-demand mainly because my work schedule is so busy during the week, and i'll be able to watch the recordings on the weekends at my own pace. But i hope i wont be missing anything important during the live courses haha

    Pass Rates Updated NCEES

    Why does enviro say "cbt" when in fact those results are based on p&p? Lol

    Oct 2018 Environmental

    Congrats to all that passed enviro I hope to take the exam next year but with the cbt switch, im really lost as to how to study. Seems like the paper exam is already tough as is, but now that its "closed book" not sure if it'll be tougher? But then again the chemical cbt pass rate is pretty high 😖

    NY State application

    @NY-Computer-Engineer@JayKay0914@RBHeadge PE Hey All, when submitting your work experience application, is there a particular format the experience should be written in? paragraphs or bullet format? I would assume bullet format makes it easier to read. Any advice here would be much appreciated! :)

    Transition to computer based exam?!

    @JayKay0914 i think you're right. When I choose NY for PE Enviro, it does say registration is only open for April 2019, in which the deadline to register is Feb 7 2019. When I try chemical, it doesnt say anything about registrations or deadlines. I guess since chemical has been cbt for a while now, you can register whenever, whereas this is the first enviro cbt version. (P.s. i tried other states and it seems to be consistent). As you stated, I believe after April 2019, the testing windows for the remaining year will open.

    Chemical Engineering PE Test CBT

    @Abdullaziz Thanks for sharing your experience! And congrats :D Just curious how many registration windows are there for the cbt? Seems like there is still only two registration windows just like the paper and pencil version? I plan on taking PE enviro (NY State) which is no longer offered in paper format. The board website says the registration deadline is Feb 7, 2019. I don't think I will make it in time to get approval for my application. But say I wanted to take the exam in August 2019, does that mean i cant since i missed the "spring" registration date and have to wait for the fall registration deadline? I tried calling my boards but the person didnt know when the next registration after feb 7th would be. I may call again and see if i can speak with another rep...It just doesnt make sense to only have a spring and fall registration deadline for a cbt exam which is offered ALL year lol.

    Transition to computer based exam?!

    @RBHeadge PE @In/PE/Out @txjennah Hey guys - I need some clarification on the cbt registration process for PE Enviro! With the transition to cbt, do the registration windows still apply? For NY state, although it says there is no longer an application deadline, it still mentions in the following paragraph that after approval, you must register anytime November 26 2018 to Feb 7 2019 to reserve a seat for the exam. Im not sure if this rule only applies to written exams? I assumed if the test is offered year round that we could register anytime as well. If not, when would be the next registration window?

    NY State application

    Thanks all for the replies! @JayKay0914Did you happen to take the PE Environmental? They are switching to computer based exam this upcoming April 2019, so you'll have more than 8 attempts if the "5 years Administrative law" is legit. lol

    NY State application

    @NY-Computer-Engineer Thanks for your reply. Do you happen to know up to how many times one can fail the exam in NY? Also, even If I fail once, do I need to submit my work experience application all over again?

    NY State application

    For New York, do you need a licensed PE to sign off on your application? I'm hearing that you don't necessarily need one. Does it "help" (i.e. make approval easier) if you get a PE to sign off anyway? Are there any other interesting rules or tips I should know for NY State before I apply? Thank you!
  15. The application states "Explain here any changes in your title resulting from promotions or other job changes during this period of employment." Can someone guide me as to what they are looking for here? i started working as a Project Manager Intern and then my title changed to a regular project manager. is this all that i need to state or do they want more information like if my responsibilities changed? Any insight would be great! Thank you. [P.S. this is for NY State if that helps]
