New SE Exam Format (was SE Review Manual - Wanted)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Thank you Chris for pointing this out.  I have included the text from the sunset report.  So if this new law comes into effect, then CA engineers can pass the exam in two parts rather than one 16 hour exam.  That would be a big relief.  Any idea when they would finalize on this issue?

pg. 60:  California Structural Engineering Examination. For a civil engineer to use the title "structural engineer," they must pass the state Structural examination. NCEES also provides a national examination for structural engineers. The Joint Committee questioned why the national examination, which would provide for better comity for out-of-state structural engineers, could not be used.

[The Board has reviewed this issue and recently voted to transition to using the NCEES Structural II national examination in conjunction with an 8-hour state-specific examination.]

pg. 61 The Board is in the process of conducting an occupational analysis to determine the state-specific portion of work to be tested on the state-specific examination for Structural Engineers. The project is on track, and the Board sees no obstacles in administering both the NCEES SE II examination and state-specific examination in October 2004.

Thank you for your comments.
