In a message dated 97-03-08 04:15:32 EST, James Dane, C.E. writes: << I have always been disappointed that I was not able to pass the SE exam in the late 1970's and have signed up to take the Nevada exam in April. My employer has a need for me to get my Hawaii SE and Hawaii accepts the NCEES Exam which Nevada uses. I also plan on taking the California Exam in October with an even more serious effort... I do "personally" think that some changes will be seriously considered in Sacramento in the near future which may require phasing Civils out of structural design.<< Those of you with primarily California experience should realize that your C.E., then S.E. licensure process is not typically used elsewhere. For example, in Hawaii and Illinois, there are separate exams for Civils versus Structurals, and neither is a pre-requisite for the other. This makes more sense from a practice standpoint, because it recognizes a clearer distinction. Of course, as James indicates, there would be political contention on doing this in California. However, please be aware that the experience prerequisites are much less and the C.E. exam is easier to pass in California than in other states where there are separate branches. Consequently, the California C.E. would NOT be typically accepted by such other states as the equivalent of their S.E. I think that a broader perspective would be instructive, as the recent California C.E. vs. S.E. arguments posted can seem "provincialized" to others. (Almost to the point of California C.E.'s vs. all S.E.'s in all states.) I''m sorry to have potentially re-ignited this string, which has lasted far too long for most of the subscribers. I will try not to post(this is my second) again on this subject. Gary Chock S.E.
