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!
Hi all, I've been aware of this board for some time and I decided to become a member finally. I'm planning to take the CA PE Exam in April 2017. I tried searching the forum for answers to my questions, but wasn't able to find anything similar. In between traditional engineering jobs, I taught as an engineering lecturer at UCLA. This is on my PE app as an engagement. I didn't work under a licensed PE at that time. I've read through the FAQs on the CA website, and I still haven't been able to answer these questions: Is the teaching industry considered "exempt?" The UC system isn't a part of the federal government and it's not a utility like SCE or PG&E. The FAQs don't seem to offer up specific details about what's required from a reference to verify engineering teaching experience. Should I ask another instructor at UCLA to provide me with a reference letter, even though they're not a licensed PE? Or, should I just include this employment experience on my list of Engagements, but not provide a reference for it? The instructions seem unclear in this regard.
