Re: SE Tests

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
California has some of the hardest requirements to become an SE, and then
some of the least restrictive requirements as to when the engineer must be
an SE.  This is something that needs to change.

Nevada requires an SE for anything over 30 ft from tip of highest point to
bottom of foundation.  Arizona has a PE-Structural, which is similar in many
respects in that at least a structural background is required for the design
of structures.

Oregon has an SE requirement, as does Washington, in addition to those you
listed.  Both are more restrictive than California.

thing in California and Hawaii, but a um, political issue in Illinois.
