FBPE is pleased to announce that a number of applications have been revised and are now fillable, PDF applications. The affected applications are:

  • • Initial Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Examination
  • • Endorsement of Fundamentals of Engineering (FE)
  • • Initial Principles and Practice (PE) of Engineering Examination
  • • Endorsement of Licensure (Comity) with or without NCEES Records

Initial Application for Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Examination:

There is only one application for individuals wishing to register with FBPE before taking the FE exam now. A candidate seeking professional licensure in Florida, who wants to ensure that he or she has met the education requirements to qualify as an Engineer Intern, should submit the FE Initial Examination Application and a fee of $30 to FBPE. Once the application has been reviewed and approved by FBPE, the candidate can then register with NCEES. Do not use this application if you reapplying for the exam within three years of your initial application.

Application for Endorsement of Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam:

You may register directly with NCEES without first applying to FBPE. You will then need to submit the FE Endorsement Application, if you wish to apply for certification as an Engineer Intern in Florida. You must have graduated with a B.S. degree in engineering to use this application.

Application for Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) Examination:

The application for the Principles and Practice Examination has been completely redesigned. If you are applying for an upcoming examination, make sure that you are using the new application. You must have four (4) years of verifiable engineering experience at the time you submit your application. If you do not pass or fail to show for the exam, you are REQUIRED to submit a Re-Examination application with the appropriate fee every time you want to take the exam. IF YOU REGISTER WITH NCEES WITHOUT BOARD APPROVAL, YOUR EXAM WILL BE CANCELED and you will lose your money with NCEES and FBPE.

Endorsement of Licensure Application (With or Without NCEES Records):

The endorsement application has been redesigned also and can now be used for an application with or without NCEES records. The application clearly states on each page if an NCEES Records holder needs to fill out that page or not. Please review the entire application before calling the office about which pages you need to fill out, if you are an NCEES Records holder.

The NCEES Records program allows engineers the ability to store and easily transmit professional records such as transcripts, exam results, employment experience and references to any state board when applying for licensure in multiple states. Having passed the NCEES exam does not constitute having an NCEES record. A licensee must have a NCEES account in order to create their record documenting the following: education, exam and licensure information, work experience and references. To create a MyNCEES account, visit NCEES account creation page. To learn more about the NCEES’ Records program, go to the NCEES Records page.
