I don't know anything about the SE. And I don't know the specifics of how Colorado does things for the SE. But if it's like how the PE release works, and how DORA typically "releases" then it's one or more of these things:
- DORA being DORA
- The person who answered the phone thought the OP was asking about the PE Civil (Structural depth) exam, and not the PE Structural (aka SE) exam. Or they may not have been aware that there is a difference.
- The person who answered may have thought that the cognizant official at the board released the SE results to the examinees, when in fact they had not done so.
- This happens in one State every cycle. Usually what happens is someone forgets to press send on the email or similar. This is when I typically PM someone and tell them to have a co-worker/friend/family contact the board and calmly explain the situation. I recommend a third party make the call because they aren't cathected and are more likely to be calm and civil with the representative and produce results. Typically during the call the State person on the phone will claim the State released, hang up, then investigate and find out that someone didn't actually do it. After the "reminder" the relevant person then quickly does the task and the results are released. This is the only case where I'm posting it in an open thread, and not a PM, since presumably everyone reading this thread has at least a PE, has been through this process before, and isn't a totally irresponsible stressball.
- It could also be the semi-annual screw up where the State, NCEES, and a third party(?) point the fingers at each other. The fault is typically with the State or one of their contractors. It takes a week+ to resolve.
Sounds like some combination of 2 and/or 3 above. See if you can have a co-worker call tomorrow.Louisiana. When I asked NCEES via chat, Dallas took my NCEES ID number and there was a couple minute pause in the chat so I’m inclined to think he at least checked on something.
