  1. Has anyone received authorization to take the CA seismic exam in Q1 2020? If so, when did you submit your application and receive your approval?
  2. Hello, I finally have enough years of experience to start submitting my PE Application! Yay! However I am stuck. I'm unsure of how to phrase my previous 1 year of experience during my time in a consulting firm. I didn't do design, but I was part of project management. Will this not count as experience towards my PE application? I'm not sure what "key words" I should be using. How specific should I be in the "decisions made" section? Thank you for any suggestions.
  3. Just a note to future applicants once you have passed your PE test and submitted your application if there is a delay do not hesitate to contact the evaluator! If I could file a complaint agaisnt a government employee I would my A-G evaluator probably only returned 1 of 50 phone calls and 8 emails over the course of 8 months it took me to get my application processed! In the meantime without my PE I was losing potential revenue that I would of made if I was licensed. What I ended up doing was calling the other two evaluators for H-O and P-Z and they were very helpful in getting my application processed.
  4. Sorry if this topic has been discussed before, but I searched through the forums and didn't see anything that would particularly answer my question. Here it is: I am currently an EIT in NYS and looking to apply for the October 2019 Mechanical HVAC exam. I have been gaining HVAC work experience working for a consulting engineering firm under direct supervision of a P.E. I was hired in May 2015 right after graduation. I know that in NYS you cannot send in future work experience on your application, so I have to wait until May of this year before I can send in that portion of the application. I spoke to the NYS office today and asked if May is enough time to review and approve the application for the October exam. Their response was "well I sure hope so" and they informed me that it typically takes 8-16 weeks to review the application. My worry is that the application will not be reviewed in time to register online with NCEES prior to the NCEES deadline. So, my question is for anyone that has already gone through the NYS application process, does the state usually take upwards of 2-3 months to review the application? I would really like to not have to wait for the 2020 exams. Thanks in advance for your time and help!
  5. So this past spring I took the PE exam in North Carolina because NY rejected my application and I was already too far into studying to give up. Anyway, I ended up passing my exam (yay!) but now I need to apply to NC. I can't find what NC considers as engineering experience. I started my career working for a contractor, but now work for a structural design firm. Is NC not going to count my construction experience? Does anyone know what I should do here? The form ( that they have on their website has two columns for work experience, time in design and time doing other work. But you can now apply using the NCEES website. Just curious if anyone has any advice. Thanks!
  6. Hello everyone! Like a lot of people here, I'm applying to take my PE Exam and ran into a little trouble with the engagement/references portion of the application. The preface: an individual who agreed to be my reference reviewed some samples of my work (they aren't part of the office I work at) asked for me to send the relevant paperwork to their address. After 2 weeks of not receiving the paperwork back in my snail-mail inbox, I wrote a quick email to them to confirm they received my paperwork; that was this past Tuesday. I still have not heard any response, unfortunately. The question: is it considered rude, pushy, or otherwise negative if I call and/or email them at least one more time in the coming week?
  7. I finally heard back from California board today (FYI - the check got cashed 3/22, yes...over four months ). Looks like everything went through except for my references. It states that my references are not licensed in state where the project was located. My situation: I work in the nuclear industry as a civil engineer. It is not required to be licensed in the state where the plant is located to complete the design work, neither do I live in those states. Therefore, most of my co-workers have licenses from different states. It is possible (will a lot of work and money) for me to get references from the states that are California is requiring, but I am confused if I need to get 4 all new references (especially since my supervisor has an out-of-state license). And I am dealing with 2 different states that I have done work for. Do I get one from each state? Do I just need one reference from each one of the states? Does my supervisors count as 1 out of the 4 references? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated, as the board made clear that I am not allowed to call or email them upon receiving this bright pink rejection letter.
  8. Hi, So I'm filling out the PE application found here: Page 3, column 2, the first paragraph under application instructions says "Applications will be rejected and application fees forfeited if any portion of this form is altered." It also says "All information appearing on this form must be typewritten or printed." Unlike the FE application, this is not a pdf with form fields one can fill in. I long since got rid of my typewriter. So to fill out this form, I have to alter it, technically. I can convert pages to word and fill them out that way. In particular the engagement cover sheet, where I have to fit a lot of type. I could also create form fields in the pdf with some sort of software. MA folks, how did you approach this conundrum? Thanks, Marinna
  9. If anyone can help me, it is much appreciated. I contacted the board and their answer was very vague and I don't want to have my application kicked back. Here is my situation: I graduated in Dec. 2014 with my master's in civil engineering. After graduation I worked at a construction project management firm where I was not doing design work (no qualifying experience). After that, I was hired as a civil engineer. I have been at this company for currently 18 months (enough qualifying experience to apply in California). I have been on the same project for 18 months, with the same supervisor. All of my other references will be co-workers that I work side by side with. 1) Do I have to write about the non-qualifying experience in Section 2 of the application, or should I just mention it in the blank space below? It says there should be no gaps except for unemployment. Again, it was not under a licensed PE and does not make sense to me if I have to get a reference from my previous supervisor. And as it says on Section 2 of Engagement Summary and References, "All the names of your reference must be listed on this page". If I have to write my old job as engagement 2 and list my old supervisor, do I have to use them as a reference? 2) Does the qualifying experience (18 months) only get listed under my current supervisor's engagement form/section of the application? i.e. Do I put 0 months under my other references? FYI, this was the board's reply, " The engagement record portion of the forms must be completed in sufficient detail to allow the Board to determine that the nature and the extent of the engineering work claimed to have been performed by the applicant has indeed been qualifying . " Thanks for the clarification California... Thank you.
  10. Hello. I have 12 years of experience from 3 companies and am trying to send the work verification forms to my supervisers. How is the state of Washington in reviewing them? Are they strict and require long and thorough responds? And I have 2 specific questions : 1. Do they require long and thorough answers to all 8 topics? 2. For item H, I didn't do anything in the first 5 years of experience for energy/environmental aspects. Any adivice on that? The work verification questions in the application are : Formulating conclusions and recommendations Identifying design and/or project objectives Identifying possible alternative methods and concepts. Defining performance specifications and functional requirements Solving engineering problems Interacting with professionals from other areas of practice Effectively communicating recommendations and conclusions Demonstrating an understanding and concern for energy/environmental considerations and sustainability of resources Thank you and good luck on studying!
  11. I am applying for the California Civil PE. I am trying to fill out my Engagement Record form. I am confused what to put in the "Description of Engineering Decisions Made" section. There seems to be some overlap between what is good for civil engineers to say vs what is good for mechanical engineers to say. E.g. piping outside of a building is civil engineering but piping inside of a building is mechanical engineering. Since I am applying for the CIVIL PE, what "Engineering Decisions" are considered civil (to be clear, this is general civil, NOT traffic, structural, or geotechnical). - Is sizing pumps civil? Is choosing flow meters civil? Any suggestions? Thank you!
  12. I was unsuccessful in applying for the PE Exam. The BOE did not give me any credits for my engagements. I have a few questions about the application: 1) The company I work for does not have a P.E.. I work with P.E.s daily and under their directions, but the P.E.s are not my boss nor work in my company. Can they be my reference and verify engineering work for my engagement? 2) Comments came back said "insufficient info/detail to determine if engagement is civil engineering work experience". What are some of the key words you put in your application for engineering work? Design? Calculation? Decision making? 3) Another comments came back said " @XYZ Company, Unclear who employer & Supervisor are". This is probably due to the issue in my questions #1. I called the board of engineering and they said, "If you don't have a PE in your company, technically your company is not practicing Engineering". I was so bumped to hear because I don't have to change company just to be able to take the exam. I then called my good friend who has a PE, and he said that is B.S.. He said, I can get verify by people from other companies that you are working with in the project. I hope someone here can clear this up. I just might have to change company to get a PE......? Thanks in advance. Hugo
  13. I have a question for the reference. My previous supervisor has a PE in Mechanical, can he be my reference while I will apply PE exam in Civil? Thanks!
  14. I have worked for the same employer for 18 months. I was originally hired as a drafter, but because of my education level my employer had me doing professional level work. During that time I got a promotion into the professional track, but my overall responsibilities did not change. Does that count as a change of engagement?
  15. Hello, I am working on my application to take the PE Exam in October 2014 in New Jersey. I have a Master's Degree plus 4 years of experience, but my EIT is from Georgia. The website for NJ indicates that there is a form that the Georgia board needs to fill out, but it doesn't give any details about the form. Here are my questions: - Does the form need to be submitted before I can send in my application? - Will they send me the form after I submit my application? There is a link on the website but when you click on it, it says "page not found". - Do they send it directly to the state board or am I responsible for that? I have all of the other pieces of my application ready, but this is driving me crazy! Thanks.
