As someone that didn't take a seismic class, I'm trying to figure out which references I'll need to buy and which ones are free off the Internet. Would it be correct to say that the October 2018 tests will use the ASCE 7-16 and the CBC 2016?
I see that I can purchase the ASCE 7-16 from their website, but I was wondering if that's the "best" way of obtaining the book, or if it can be printed for free like the CBC. Also, for the CBC, would it just be Part 2, Volumes 1 and 2, that I would need to download and print from their website, or should I also include Part 2.5 (plus others?)?
Hope I don't bother you with the umpteenth questions about these, but I have a few queries:
Does the NCEES Council Record only apply towards people that already have the PE in other states, or can a non-licensed person use it to transmit educational experience to the BPELSG? If it can be used by non-licensed people, will I still need to submit my transcripts over?
If my direct supervisor is retiring before I get the requisite qualifying experience, is it ok for him to be one of my references as long as the other references list the required qualifying experience time? If not, would it be ok for my supervisor to sign the form after I have the required qualifying experience, despite my supervisor having already retired?
The BPELSG Application for Licensure form checklist says that I will need to request verification of my having passed the NCEES PE exam. That PE exam is listed under the "Verified Exams" box on the NCEES website when I'm logged in, but I haven't actually done anything. Will I need to manually submit some kind of request, or can I assume that this is a non-issue?
I have already been fingerprinted for the EIT. I know that it is listed on the BPELSG website that I do not to be fingerprinted again, but is there any formal proof that I need to provide to the Board, or can I just assume that the BPELSG has them already?
Thanks for the help!
