The 2022 Florida Legislative Session ended on Friday, March 11, with one bill of interest to Professional Engineers being passed by both houses.
A late co-worker, who received his Professional Engineer license in 1965, had a license number in the mid-7,000s. He was the only PE that I have ever known with only four digits in his license number. This got me thinking about how engineering licensure has changed over the years.
Just like you don’t dip your chip back into the guacamole, you don’t double-dip when it comes to your continuing-education credits. Hours that you earn in a continuing-education class can only be counted once.
As your career winds down or you decide to stop practicing in Florida, don’t disregard the importance of that PE license. There are scammers out there eager to take advantage of your good reputation and your license number.
FBPE applauds everyone who passed NCEES exams in the previous quarter. We wish them much success as they move toward the next step in their engineering careers.
