For those licensed Professional Engineers who find themselves needing to obtain a license in a different jurisdiction, I would like to recommend setting up an NCEES Record.
The Florida Engineers Management Corporation is celebrating 25 years this month. On July 1, 1998, FEMC took over as the administrative staff for the Florida Board of Professional Engineers.
Most of you have probably been hearing a lot of chatter about AI (artificial intelligence) and how it is taking over our world. That might be an exaggeration but, in reality, it has been at the forefront of the news for the past few months. I gave it a try.
Things are really hopping around the FBPE office. Besides getting back into the swing of outreach by way of face-to-face university presentations, we are also in the middle of licensure renewal.
The Board has been working diligently to complete the rules to implement the Structural Engineering Recognition Program for Professional Engineers and expects to have them finished very soon.
The 2022 Florida Legislative Session ended on Friday, March 11, with one bill of interest to Professional Engineers being passed by both houses.
Hopefully, here’s to a better year than the last two have been. Even with all the challenges of COVID and handling a renewal period during a worldwide pandemic, FEMC survived and persevered.
FBPE’s office receives a lot of inquiries whenever catastrophic events happens. What a lot of engineers and the public don’t realize is the process the Board and its staff must go through when a complaint is filed against an engineer.
I am happy to announce that FEMC staff is now back in the office full time. After an exhausting and stressful year, staff is no longer working remotely. Hooray!
Although most of Florida’s licensees have renewed their license, there are several PEs who have paid for renewal and, for lack of responding to the attestation questions, have not completed the renewal process.
