  1. @sparkyelec99 I applied for the FE waiver in 2016 and had to submit the ENTIRE application package as part of the process, including accompanying "engagement record" forms and fingerprints. This is how you document your years of experience which will serve as proof to waive the FE requirement, in your case, 14 years of experience since you have a Master's degree. There is no separate waiver request form, you simply check a box on the PE license application form in section 1, item 6 ( If granted, you will then take the NCEES exam and when you get your passing result, send BPELSG a completed "notice of successful national examination" form ( so they can continue processing the original PE application, there's no need to re-apply. I hope this helps.
  2. Hello folks... I am in California, a state that DOES allow the FE exam waiver provided you can document 15 years of experience relevant to your discipline and have an accredited engineering BS degree. A pre-requisite for the PE license is to have 6 years of professional experience which you can prove through "engagement records", a minimum of 4 is required. So to request a waiver all you have to do is check a box on the application and document the additional 11 years by adding more engagement records. I applied for one and had no trouble getting it. If you have been out of school for a while and and are not intending on getting a multi-state PE license, I'd strongly recommend you spend your time on prepping for the PE exam and get a waiver for the FE. They are two different exams and although some of the FE exam principles will help you prepare for the PE, I'd focus my energy on "the real deal."
  3. We've entered the magic hour for those in California....good luck!
  4. CA usually releases between 10am-12pm Pacific Time....hang in there and good luck !
  5. I don't remember NCEES releasing results on a Wednesday so I'm going to take a guess and say 12/12 (Thu)...I'm not even waiting for results and I'm anxious for you guys... good luck to those waiting !
  6. This is EXACTLY how we celebrated when we passed the PE.... a few of us (from different engineering disciplines) got together, went to a local brewery and had a few cold ones... @squaretaper PE...we should do this again when you get your next results !
  7. I think the reason results are taking so long this cycle is because Justin Stine is single-handedly grading all of them...😂
  8. Instead of the green box you will see a red box with the word "Fail" in me, you don't want to see it... 😥
  9. That's true.... and as @squaretaper PE pointed out that's the time we took the PE and passed !
  10. I'm thinking it'll be Monday Dec. 9th as well...Friday the 13th would just be too cruel 😖
  11. I know I should post there too.. making German Chocolate cake for our potluck tomorrow here at to come !
  12. If I can find time away from cleaning the yard, baking and painting sure... I'll take the personality test
  13. If you've moved into an office sounds like you're moving up in the world, hopefully thanks to your PE status...
