Same. I emailed the evaluator to seek clarification. See this paragraph from PE act:

 

6795. Certificate renewal time periods Certificates of registration as a professional engineer, and certificates of authority, shall be valid for a period of two years from the assigned date of renewal. Biennial renewals shall be staggered on a quarterly basis. To renew an unexpired certificate, the certificate holder shall, on or before the date of expiration indicated on the renewal receipt, apply for renewal on a form prescribed by the board, and pay the renewal fee prescribed by this chapter.

The date Sept 30th must have some sort of quarterly significance. 

 

Thanks... so basically we fill out the renewal form, submit the necessary fee and that's it... I've been reading another thread here about having to take a reassessment ? I wonder if that even applies to us since we JUST got licensed....

I got a response from the board. They said we paid the fee to have them review and approve us for the exam. They give 90days free license. So after Sept 30th we've to pay for the license.

On your stamp order. What did you enter in the license no field? Prefix M? or no M (for mechanical).

@AyanHein @MechanicalApril17... my license shows an expiration date of Sept 30, 2018....I'm curious as to what yours shows?

Mine is expiring on Sept 30th. I think everyone should have same date....

P.S. I just found out there is daily limitation on 'reactions' on EB.COM ..... 😥

June 5, 2018 last PE# is 89036

I will stop posting this when I get my number.  :rolleyes:

I just enered the license number. When you put your order in through Engineer Seals it asks for the license number and discipline separately, so there is no need to enter the "M" since it will be redundant. Reading section 411 of BPELSG Rules this is what the seal should look like:

Capture.gif.78fc3247ef24244e35af63bed244620e.gif

So where it says branch it'll show your discipline. Also, if you look at how BPELSG displays the info in the license look up section of their web site, "M" or "C" is just the license type, not the actual number which is strictly numerical, no alpha characters.

Anyway at least this is how I interpret the rules and I hope it helps.

Scratch everything I said... I got an email from BPELSG saying that the "M" DOES have to be there... whew.... glad I caught that in time to make the correction.

Thanks for the info. I'd love to have name and branch straight as shown in the pic you attached (not curved). Stamp vendors have curved name and branch in the template. Does anyone know of somebody that makes stamps as shown in the pic above? Also I do not want the word "registered" on there.

I'm with you... I went with "Licensed"...

June 8, 2018  last PE# is still 89036

I'm still waiting for my number. 

I'm wondering if there are others  who qualified for the exam before the decoupling and waiting for their number from the BPELSG.

If you've passed all the exams and have not received notification of licensure by now, you should be checking with your evaluator at the Board to see what is causing the delay.

What about if you followed the new application rules where you don't submit your application until you find out you passed? I found out I passed, submitted my completed application the following day (May 25) and am still awaiting.

The website says do not contact them within 60 days.

Then its likely your application is currently in the review process.  If its within 60 days, just be patient.  If you haven't heard anything by the time you get to 60 days, by all means, contact the Board by using this info: http://www.bpelsg.ca.gov/about_us/contact.shtml

Definitely keep checking every week! I think I got my license number after last April's cycle some time in the beginning of June.

Every week?  I've been checking for my New York number 4 or 5 times a day.  I tend to stop after 4:30pm since we are dealing with State workers (I should know because I work for a State agency myself).  Every now and then however, I check late at night (for example tonight, it's was nearly 10pm when I checked again), just in case some guy/gal was rushing out the side door 15 or 20 minutes early who forgot to kick-off a batch job (yep, you can say - some really old computers in some departments) and decides to remote in after dinner to avoid catching flack from his (or her) department head. 

I just hope I get it before the end of June, since that is the cut-off for getting on the stipend list.  Since I work for a State utility they give us a nice little 'extree' check in September for having our PE license.  That could really help with Holiday shopping this year - without having to sell back one of my weeks vacation.

Thank you to CAPLS.  I e-mailed the Board and go this response:

They are running the licenses today check the website next week”

I do get the feeling that they are really understaffed and they are patiently answering e-mails from anxious soon to be licensed engineers.

Hopefully this helps those that are waiting!

Not really understaffed...more having to answer all the calls and emails the minute exam results hit the streets.  If the calls and emails didn't happen or were MUCH LESS, then they could spend more of their time on the licensing.

I got my license number this morning as well when i checked it!! Finally after 3 weeks of waiting!! Congrats to all who got their numbers as well!

I am so jealous - n New York there is 'nothing' posted in the online lookup yet - for myself or others that were notified of passing three weeks ago.  I am really starting to wonder what is going on.

Perhaps contact the board to see what's going on? I'd give them another week or so. Licensing take awhile since they have to go thru a lot of steps.

Not yet. The temporary email certificate said it will take 6-8 weeks from then for us to receive the wall certificate. I don't think it will take that long as they always tend to give you the worst case scenario dates.

No I haven't stamped anything. I work at a power plant where we're not required to stamp anything for years.. and years... and years....
