RE: Forensic Engineers (Arizona)

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

Sounds like stuff Failure Analysis or Exponent Inc. would do. Figuring out why things fail. Probably involves training in how to document things so others can follow, like a criminalist or something. Possible some specific training in material failures mechanisms etc…


I don’t recall California having this license, but they may and do have a ton of specialty ones (Fire Protection, etc…)

this is interesting. I do a fair amount of expert testimony on trip and fall, slip and fall, falling on steps, etc.

I don't understand what a "forensic engineer" would be. One must have some knowledge in something else besides how the court and attorneys operate.

What exactly does this entail - is it a separate test?  Does your stamp identifed your license as PE (forensic)?  What are you qualified to do?  What are you not qualified to do?


What (who) was the motivating factor for this?


Do other states have this designation?
