  1. I have both, a Civil-WRE & Environmental license and an Environmental license. Just for me, the Civil exam was easier than environmental exam. I registered the license as discipline of civil engineer in Washington DC, the civil discipline is not shown up on the certificate.
  2. I passed two PE exams, Environmatal Engineer exam and Civil-Water Resources and Environmatal Engineer exam. The reason was because California does not accept the Environmatal Engineer PE license. I already got the Environmatal Engineer PE license in another state before I moved to CA. My education and work experience have been in the two field.
  3. California allows examinees to take the exam first before work experience approval. I took the 8 hours Civil exam in CA by the NCEES exam registration. After passed I can submit the CA application including work experiences and references for CA specific exams. I can take the CA specific exams after the state approval.
  4. I think somebody here has had the same experience like as now I have. I already have a registered PE license(Environmental Engineering) in CO. But I have been working in CA, So I was trying to find how to transfer my PE to CA Civil -Water Resource and Environmental. It was complicated and really stressful for me. So I took the Civil - Water Resources and Environmental PE exam on Oct 2018 and passed. Meanwhile I recently decided to move to Virginia, so now I stopped studying the two CA specific exams and I am looking for a new job opening in Virginia. I think two PE licenses (Environmental Engineering PE and Civil-Water Resources and Environmental PE) registration will give me more opportunities in job market. Is it true or stupid? I do not need to have two PE licenses? I just select one for registration? I need your advice.
