Re: State of Idaho PE Renewal

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello Joe,

I think that there may be a little misunderstanding here.

The notice that I got for my Idaho renewal informed me that I was
supposed to check with my company to ensure that they have a
COA.  If they don't have one, then I'm supposed to either work to
get them one or report their illegal activity to the Board of PE and
PLS if they are practicing engineering in the state without the COA.
The Board would renew my license without any proof of my
employment or employer's compliance with the law to have a COA.

The Board did remind me that I've got an obligation to the safety
of the public to ensure that the laws are followed.

If you got a different type of notification for COA compliance with
your renewal documents,  then I'd like to know what you got.

Govt. is very very rarely our friend.

Take Care,
