state-by-state licensure requirementsCharlie,

NSPE published a document they call a State-by-State Summary and Analysis of
Engineering Licensure Laws in 1997.  I don't know if this study has been
updated since.  It covers 55 jurisdictions (the 50 states, the District of
Columbia, Guam, Northern Mariana Islangds, Puerto Rico and the Virgin
Islands).  I bought a copy back in 1997 (I think it cost a hundred dollars
or so) and have found it useful and generally accurate but I'm sure Mr.
Stuart has a point in re verification of anything you need to rely on.

Anyway, NSPE's offices in Alexandria, Virgina are at 703-684-2800 and their
web site is

Your best bet is to check with NSPE (, however you will have to pay
to get a hard copy of their summary.

Be forewarned that their document is a synopsis and not always accurate.  As
I am registered in over 40 states I know from experience that you need to
verify everything with each every state board.

Does anyone know if a summary exists of state-by-state PE and SE licensure
maintenance requirements (particularly regarding CEUs/PDHs) for the United
States? I've searched a bit on Google and a few other ways but so far have
only been able to find links to the individual state requirements.
Thanks in advance,
