Don't disagree that application process needs updating. Have you seen this the Board's June 16, 2021 announcement on their website Board for Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors, and Geologists ?I agree on the timing. I got really good at learning how to take that test- not surveying. If it was really important, they should have a practical where you had to do an actual traverse, and calculate something. The logistics of this seem hard however but the process of applying and getting your license is so archaic. I now have my license and see it as a form of hazing- although if you can get through the process does mean that you are detailed enough to design/build something or have enough sense not to if you are unsure. My two cents. An archaic application process to say the least in this era of docusign, paypal, etc.
- ANNOUNCED JUNE 16, 2021 - The Board is excited to introduce the third phase of its new application and licensing portal designed to promote effective connection between the Board and its applicants and license holders. Initial functionality allows for overall application management by applicants for Professional Engineer licenses in the disciplines of agricultural, chemical, control system, electrical, fire protection, industrial, mechanical, metallurgical, nuclear, and petroleum engineering, encompassing the initial user profile creation and application submittal with direct connection with Board staff, through to the issuance of the PE license. The Board looks forward to extending this functionality to include applications for the remaining license types in the near future.
