Having passed the fundamentals exam, either in Florida or in another state, a person must apply for the Principles and Practice examination (PE) to complete the process for professional licensure. The eligibility qualifications to apply and sit for the NCEES PE exam, are successful completion of the FE exam and four (4) years of verifiable engineering experience. Refer to Rule 61G15-20.002 F.A.C., for specific details about what qualifies as acceptable work experience.
If an applicant has passed the FE and the PE exams in another state, they may may endorse his or her license by application, if they meet the educational requirements of Rule 61G15-20.007, F.A.C., and the experience requirements of Rule 61G15-20.002, F.A.C. For more information about licensure by endorsement (comity or reciprocity) go to the Endorsement page under the Licensure section of our website.
NOTICE TO PE EXAMINEES: IF YOU DO NOT PASS THE EXAM OR FAIL TO APPEAR FOR THE EXAM, YOU ARE REQUIRED TO SUBMIT A RE-EXAMINATION APPLICATION WITH THE APPROPRIATE FEE EVERY TIME YOU WISH TO TAKE THE EXAM. IF YOU REGISTER WITH NCEES WITHOUT BOARD APPROVAL, YOUR EXAM WILL BE CANCELED.
