    San Mateo Area?

    Anyone have any insights on where exactly the exam location will be for the San Mateo Area? I have my flight into SFO set but would like to get my hotel arranged as well.

    Intro and Question from OH

    You are correct. I finally did get a hold of the board directly and they confirm what you say.
  3. Has anyone used this resource before? Thoughts? A quick (lazy) search didn't yield much about this specifically. http://www.engproguides.com/powerguide.html

    California PE Questions

    Thank you! I am an EE so no need for the state specific tests. Looks like a trip to Cali is in my future. Where did you go?
  5. I plan to call the CA board next week to be certain but I'd still like to to see if anyone on here can confirm a couple things while I can't get them off my mind this weekend. I live in OH and have passed the FE. I plan to get licensed in CA for a number of reasons. I intend to take the PE in April.  Question 1: I should know this but don't... Do I need to physically sit in CA for the PE exam? Question 2: The person I talked to in CA last week said I don't actually need to become a CA EIT prior to taking the PE. Nor do I need to apply for approval to take the PE ahead of time. They said I just need to submit proof of FE exam, PE exam and qualifying experience/references with the PE app and all should be good. Did I hear her wrong or can someone confirm this? Thanks for the help!
  6. I received word yesterday that, after studying for about 16 hours a week for 4 months, I passed the electrical and computer FE! As many on here already advise, I will forever strongly recommend that aspiring engineers take it just before or right after graduation as there was a TON of material I had to relearn. This test was hard enough but add in family, full-time employment in a stressful environment, a title/responsibility change and the fact that my college education was spread out over 8 years concluding nearly 4 years ago and it seems insurmountable . In all honesty, I did not think I had passed when I walked out of the room but, lo and behold, I am now anxiously waiting to register for the PE when open in November!

    Intro and Question from OH

    Good morning, all! I started in the industry in late 2005 as an apprentice electrician in the industrial world. I worked and learned up to the journeyman level (KY). Not long into my career, I realized I wanted to take on more responsibility and be the one creating the designs on which I was working. To that end, I started evening and weekend classes at Miami University (OH) which escalated once my apprentice school was done. I took on a CAD design position in 2009 and fell in love, often taking personal time to learn more about the designs I was assigned and improve my skills. True Engineering (if you want to call it that) started in 2011 when I began working in SKM and deeper engineering work took off from there. I graduated first with an AS ECET then a BS EMET. Situation and question for the group if anyone knows: I qualify to take the PE in California (confirmed with the board) but don’t yet in OH. If I read OH rules correctly, if I take and pass the PE before 8 years experience (BS in ‘15), I cannot get licensed there. Does anyone know if that means ‘ever’ or ‘would need to retake the PE in 2023?’ Thanks for any insight. The OH board has not yet answered me directly. Looking forward to joining the discussions here! -Mike
