Not too long ago I brought up the Engineers’ Creed to a young engineer, to which he replied, “I didn’t know engineers had one.” I said we did and that it has had an influence on many engineers, myself included, as to how we practice engineering. His comment reminded me that I, too, was unaware there was an Engineers’ Creed as a young engineer until someone pointed it out to me.
It’s a good idea to log into your DBPR online account at myfloridalicense.com in the next few weeks, before the renewal period starts. You want to ensure that you can access your account — and troubleshoot any problems that you may encounter — before you are trying to renew your Professional Engineer license or Certificate of Authorization.
A major change is coming with this licensure renewal cycle. Professional Engineer licenses and Certificates of Authorization will no longer be mailed. PEs must log into their account at myfloridalicense.com and print their license and CA from there.
All current Professional Engineer licenses and Certificates of Authorizations are set to expire, Feb. 28, 2019. Beginning Monday, Nov. 5, 2018, online license renewal will officially open for the 2019-2021 biennium. Here are some helpful hints, general information, and basic instructions for accessing your account and renewing your license online.
