    States that require experience to sit for the NCEES PE Exams

    I would be cautious with use of the term Decoupled. Michigan recently revised the Professional Engineer Licensing Requirements, and via my reading of the new Regulations which are sitting next to me on my desk as I type this, the State no longer specifies when the applicant may take the exam...

    PE Seal & Stamp

    Heads up to all Michigan License holders. Michigan Dept of Licensing changed the requirements for PE Seals / Stamps effective today. All licensees must obtain a compliant Stamp / Seal within 24 months. That deadline is before my current license expires! The new design is even less impressive...

    PE Seal & Stamp

    I have always found it unusual that Wyoming was the first State to issue the PE. That being said, I learned 40 years ago from a very senior PE that when he obtained his Michigan license he only needed to drive to the State Capital with his College Diploma, sign his name in a Ledger Book, and pay...

    It just never clicks for me

    Old timer here. I graduated in '79 after taking the FE exam in my final semester and doing respectable on it. I sat for Part II in '83 and scored embarrassingly poor although I passed. So......some (or many) of us who passed just squeaked by. I don't know the current scoring requirements for a...

    Change in Michigan Licensing Schedule

    I have been licensed in my home State of Michigan since 1983. Renewals every two years since then. Everyone's renewal date was October 31st. This year I completed my 30 hours of CEU''s in September, so I immediately renewed my License for another two years. My renewal date is now September...

    Is the PMP worth it?

    Some client companies are now expecting/demanding their Consultant Firms supply individuals with the PMP Certification. Hopefully your employer will pay for the cost of Certification. Fees imposed by PMI (Project Management Institute) are high, PMI makes major revisions to their "Book Of...

    Anyone have their OSHA 10 or OSHA 30 certifications

    I have my OSHA 30 Certificate.  At the time I received this certification my licensing authority, the state of Michigan, did not require PDH accrual for relicensing so I did not use it.

    Online PDH Courses

    I have accounts with both EZ-PDH.com and PDHdirect .com EZ-PDH requires you to identify the specific courses you plan to take at time of purchase. This is a PITA with my employer's purchasing system, and does not allow a licensee to drop a class without potential penalty after realizing...

    Michigan PDH Audits

    I received an email from a former co-worker today.  He renewed his license in October of 2018 and received a letter from the State of Michigan, dated January 15th, informing him that he was selected to have his PDH accumulation for the Nov 2016 thru Oct 2018 period audited. What I found...

    $10 pencil is gonna be black....

    My very first calculator, A Unicom 202SR made by Rockwell International   It was ordered (scientific calculators were so rare and expensive that stores did not stock them!) in early 1974 while a High School Senior.  I think it was a 6 week waiting period until it arrived.  Cost was $150-$175. ...

    $10 pencil is gonna be black....

    TI-56  I brought mine and my wife's matching calculators to the exam, along with a spare battery pack since batteries did not last too long back in those days. I bet you thought I wouldn't remember!

    Stuff to bring to test

    OK, this happened back in 1983.  One guy who sat two rows in front of me used an appliance truck to bring in six Banker Boxes filled with references.  He then set the six boxes on his table in an arc, two rows high, with all book spines facing him.  Blatant over-kill. IIRC I used one Beer Crate...

    ASCE Members - Earn 5 free PDHs

    I have used these and they are pretty good for about three years of use.  The listing of free classes is far more stagnant that I ever expected it would be, and some of the topics cannot be learned in only one hour's time unless the enrollee already has a back-ground in the subject. ...

    question about ncees reciprocity

    I assume you are asking about the NCEES Council Record for Licensure by Commity with additional States.  I received/established my Council Record in 2009. You need to document ALL education and experience since graduating High School. They even wanted an explanation for the three month period...

    I am so old that I brought my own pencil, my own calculators (two matching ones plus a third battery pack), and my own reference books!

    Will a Masters Degree soon be necessary for a PE?

    I was reading my recent copy of Civil Engineering magazine last night.  I read the first paragraph of the article on page 18 and stopped dead.  I read the paragraph two more times just to be sure I hadn't misinterpreted it.  The paragraph starts an article discussing a new Master of Civil...
