COME ON CA!

If it is true that they have to wait for everyone who took the exam to get fingerprinted before the release results, there is no way they are releasing before Christmas. Out of state fingerprints take months. I have a hard time believing that is the hold up.

I'm never planning to get my fingers printed. I only took the exam in CA to expedite my AK licensing process. I'm sure I'm not the only person who is doing/has done this. There's no way the fingerprinting is holding up the show.

Why was I being lectured yesterday as "being impatient" when it's clear there's a massive problem here that only President Trump can solve? Unbelievable.

I just talked to a friend who knows a friend of a friend who has a cousin who shops at the same grocery store as someone who works for the board and they said the hold-up is that this is all conjecture and no one really knows what's going on.

Right , ask them what "the process" is . CA dropped the ball on the finger print this time and should have required it at the application stage . It is now a "HUGE" mess.

I don't know what " the process" but they clearly said it's not due to the finger print.................

I think I am with you on this.  Just going to hope CA gives me a Christmas present and releases the results prior to then.

Just got off the phone with guy in CA who releases the results . He said expect something next week "before Christmas" . He reiterated lot of people have not submitted finger prints and it is delaying the licensing process . California has received results from NCEES but will not release them unless they update their database .They are in the process of doing so but this is being held up due to missing fingerprints (!)

Right now in my opinion this is a mess . Lot and I mean a lot of finger prints have not been submitted .

I would not expect results before next week at the rate this is going . I think we will be lucky if we get it before Christmas .

I just called the board. They said the reason for delay is not because of the finger pint thing. They just have their process to go through and we will get the results before Christmas.  

So something sounds fishy here. Both of you talked with the board. And you're both saying different things?

Chances are they talked to different people since CA board has lots of employees who probably all have different levels of understanding regarding the results.

Can you provide the name of the person you spoke to? I just got off the phone with a gentlemen that indicated otherwise. Please provide the name of the person you spoke to. Yesterday I was also told that the results would not be held up due to the finger printing when I called the board.

I'm with you on this.  I was anxious the first day, but been numb since then.  It's better to be hopeless about CA now and if there's a pleasant surprise, then I can enjoy it.  Otherwise, no disappointment.   I can't believe they screw up that badly?   It's almost like they did it on purpose just to win the Idiot Award.

It is odd that a test like does not reveal the results similar to the State Bar.  When my buddy got his BAR results, it was at a specified date and time which I he knew well in advance.

:DV: Guys be strong. This is nothing but normal. Results in CA are typically released one week after the NCEES release date. Nothing to worry about......

Don't want to burst your bubbles, but California took forever in April. It nearly ruined my Memorial Day weekend camping trip when half the country released their results but not CA. I don't expect it to be any quicker with the new fingerprinting requirement. It's also true that they released the 8-hr results in the morning then the state-specific tests in the evening. I spent that entire day refreshing my email on my computer and phone. I know it's agony, but good luck. You'll have your results within a week, good or bad. :)

All these years with zero improvement is unacceptable. When we start accepting horrible results as the norm, that's when society declines.

Just curious, how does the CA exam help with AK? I'm guessing you passed on the Seismic and Surveying then.

Correct, I did not take Seismic and Surveying. I may at a later date, but wanted to focus on the NCEES exam. I don't really ever foresee living or working in CA.

The timing with engineering board meetings and my "responsible charge" time was slowing me down. AK wouldn't allow me to sit for the PE exam until April 2016 at the earliest. So I applied in CA and they allowed me to sit in Oct. Had I thought about it, I probably could have taken the exam in CA years ago. 

If I pass, I could be licensed in AK 8+ months earlier than if I waited to sit for the PE here, just due to the board meeting schedule.

Gotcha. So if you pass you just have to show proof of passing the NCEES exam to the AK board and get licensed? Sounds like a decent deal.

No. You have to take some nonsense arctic engineering course too.

Yeah, it was an expensive decision, but hopefully it pays off.
