Do you guys know how to order the Stamp and register for Electronic version so that we can stamp the PDF directly. 

There are several stamp companies that will supply you with an electronic stamp. Usually you just supply them with your state’s stamp specifications, your name (as it appears on the licensing database), and your license #.

There is one good website available. I  ordered stamp and electronic version from it. The website is https://www.pestamps.com/

I finally broke down and called to ask about number assignments.  I got the same "3 weeks" answer that was given 4 days ago (grrr).  I politely explained that "I know it's not going to change anything or make it any quicker, but a lot of us are waiting for license numbers before we can get promotions or raises, so this is costing each of us hundreds of dollars in potential earnings each week, which is particularly unfortunate around the holidays."  I was then told that it always takes them this long to issue numbers for 700 people, but I looked back through the EB boards for the last 5-6 cycles, and numbers were previously issued within the first 1-2 weeks, so I 100% call bull on that, but they were very insistent that it ALWAYS takes this long.  It's so incredibly frustrating.  Anyway, I thought I'd share the "latest" info.  Sorry, guys...

Thanks for the update! Its already been almost 3 weeks since they released results so this may breach the blanketed "4 weeks" statement if they are still saying 3 weeks. That is a lot of folks to license though i'll give them that.

It's hard to say if they meant 3 weeks from the results date or 3 weeks from now.  Between my phone conversation and the email that was posted here a few days ago, I kinda took it as 3 weeks from now :(

It'd be nice if they started licensing people at all if it's going to take three weeks....since they haven't added a single new license since the end of October. I still think this must have something to do with the switch to the new platform and if my name being wrong in the system is any indication I'm guessing there have been some major issues with getting things moved over.

This wait is crazy to me! I think they are just telling people 3 weeks as an arbitrary answer, hoping that we will leave them alone for just a little longer.

This wait is quite frustrating. The new salary revision started in my firm and I do not have any proof of my result. 

 

On a side note, is there a place we know how many PEs are licensed each year statewide for each discipline. 

 

Thanks

Hopefully this is the week!! This may have already been asked earlier but i'm going to throw it out there anyway, do they assign all of the license #'s first and then begin the releasing? I thought they released them as they became available.

It's seemed in the past that all numbers were released on the same day. Although they have obviously moved to a new system. The old system seemed to only update one time per day. It seems as though this one might be constantly updating.

FYI in 2017 I found out I passed On December 4th, and was able to look up my license number on December 11th.

Ugh, I'm still so bitter about the guy on the phone telling me over and over that it's "always" taken them this long to assign numbers.

This is really maddening!

10-4. Did the state send you an email once they had assigned the license # or did you have to just go to the website and track it down?

A week turnaround that's awesome! We will be all of 4 weeks this administration its looking like.

No, I didn't receive an email. Just kept my eyes open on the license lookup site. I received a letter about a week after that in the mail from the Department of Licensing. 

I truly can't believe that they haven't put all of you in the system yet. I wish they were just honest with you about what is going on over there...

That is madness. I received my # 8 days after passing.
 

I’m sorry you are all being subject to this wait :( I can’t wait until I look back here and see you all have your licenses, though! :)

Really? I can't find anything for my name or the next sequential numbers. You got a screenshot you wanna share?

I think that was just in reference to the portal for license lookup being different than what it was in the past. I emailed DOL after i received my pass notice because the "next steps" hyperlink took me to an old page that didn't have any information. I just tried to look up mine as well and didn't see anything either.

I think you're exactly right. The portal is still on License 58202 (added October 29th), 58203 doesn't exist yet. It makes me wonder if they are waiting for the next board meeting. 

Has anyone contacted the DOL or Engineer Board in the last couple days?

I have not reached out to them but i thought about sending them an email since we are beyond 4 weeks now. I can do that and give an update hopefully sometime today.

Huh. Looks like they've gone rogue with the numbering convention. Well, both glad they are licensing people finally and jealous that I don't have one. How did you find your number, was it through your account or a search of your name?

It looks like engineers are no longer separated out as I've found several Architects and an appraiser in the same range as the license number shown above. Well, guess that makes it harder to follow along via the license search.

I think it is moving very slowly. I just emailed them asking them what the real and honest timeline is, since the lack of licensing is having a real financial impact on people waiting on promotions and raises. They told me everything should be complete by February 15...

FYI the automatic relay from the DOL (before they address the email sent to to them) is:

"We recently released a new professional licensing system to help serve you better. During this transition, our response time may be delayed. Thank you for your patience."

This might explain the delay... new licensing system to help serve you better... I hope everyone waiting for their license feels "better served".
