In a message dated 95-12-29 18:42:51 EST, you write: >Our new phone book is out and both are still listed under the SE catagory. >Should they be busted or not? > >What do you think? I'm a Civil Engineer that has just never taken the SE exam (I've been licensed for 15 years and do mostly structural work) and I believe that if you have pointed the fact out to the violators and they continue, you should complain to the State. As licensed CEs, they should be aware of the laws and there is no excuse. I have reported a few contractors that were listing themselves under the heading of Structural Engineers and they chose to continue after I called and followed up with a written letter to them. It took a few years as the phone book is only printed every year, but the State finally got them to change their listing. In this case, I was concerned with the misrepresentation that these contractors had an engineering license when in fact they didn't even have an engineer (Civil or Structural) on staff. The Board is quite specific on the requirements and we need to police our own as a service to the community. It's more than the fact that SEs studied to take the test, it's that the community shouldn't be lied to. I receive calls every month where I have to explain to people that I am not a Structural Engineer as they are asking for, but still licensed and very qualified to do what they are looking for. But the bottom line.... If they are blatently violating the law, and thumb their nose at it, they shouldn't be practicing anyway. If they want to use the title, they must follow the rules. That way we all get along on the playground.... <G> Steve Privett CE EQretroDR(--nospam--at)aol.com
