I'm now applying for Civil PE registration in CA (I have all my qualifying experience). One year of my qualifying experience was in MA under a licensed Environmental PE. Obviously Environmental is a subset of Civil, but since there's a specific Environmental PE title in MA, I'm concerned about whether his reference will be valid for my civil app here in CA. From the CA PE application FAQ, for an applicant seeking registration as a civil PE, "all references must be licensed engineers authorized to practice civil engineering." From the Code of Massachusetts Regulations 250 CMR 5.01(3) "Engineering Registrants must restrict engineering practice to areas of competence based upon their education and experience qualifications." The way I read this, if my former boss is competent to practice civil engineering in MA, he's a valid reference for my CA civil PE app. Do I need to have him write a letter in addition to stamping my engagement form stating the above to the CA Board? I'm applying my Master's Degree in Civil Engineering as part of my qualifying experience. CA states that a reference is required for all qualifying experience. Does that mean that my grad school professors registered as PE's can serve as qualifying references for me? Thanks for reading and thanks in advance for any help you choose to give me!
I just complete a masters program while working full time. Some states allow 'double dipping' of that work/education experience when applying for PE, and some do not. But it gets interesting for me because I actually started my masters as a full-time student before I started working. So I started my masters in Aug. 2013, and started full-time work in March 2014. I just completed my degree in May. So in states that do not allow double-dipping, do those first months of my masters program where I was not working full time count for anything? Will I be eligible for licensure in August 2017 or March 2018? I am curious if anyone has specific experience with this situation. I contacted the PA board about it and they told me they couldn't tell me anything until I actually applied... Thanks for reading
