FTR - ASHRAE opposed proposed new licensure requirement at national level
NCEES Removes "Masters or Equivalent" from Model State Law
The National Council for Examiners of Engineering and Surveying held their 2014 annual meeting in Seattle, Washington on August 20-23. At this meeting, delegates voted to modify the approach to requiring additional education for initial engineering licensure by removing specific language in the NCEES Model Law and Model Rules, originally intended to be effective in 2020. As part of the vote, annual meeting delegates decided to instead develop an official NCEES position statement that supports additional engineering education beyond a bachelor’s degree. Among other actions taken at the annual meeting, NCEES member boards voted to remove its Model Law prerequisite that four years of progressive engineering experience be earned before a licensure candidate can take the final licensing exam, the Principles and Practice of Engineering exam.
