It could happen and did. I returned to school after 30 years old. I
completed my PE requirements (education and work experience) before I
completed my last wood course and took my PE exam the next weekend. I went
into my employer the following Monday and quit (Aerospace industry). As soon
as I received notification that I passed my PE I left the firm I moved to
went immediately into private practice.
There are many of us (although we don't brag about it) who changed majors so
many times or went to so many different schools that we choose to complete
the courses relevant to our professions and received licensing by a
combination of work and school experience. Maybe it isn't done too often and
I certainly would not recommend it to others just starting out, but I am
living proof that it can be done and done while being married, raising a
family and working full time.
I did learn one thing in the process - diplomacy:o)

Hey Bill,

Think for a minute how that could happen.  I am no principal, however my
father is the owner and one of the principal engineers at the firm.  Now, do
you have any insight on the question or not?
