Mission Statement

Our mission is to safeguard life, health, and property by assuring that those who practice the professions of engineering and land surveying attain and maintain competence in those professions.

Board Member Position Open

The members of the Board of Licensure for Professional Engineers and Professional Land Surveyors (IPELS) serve 5-year terms and are appointed by the Governor. This year there are two (2) positions which have completed a term of office or are otherwise subject to an appointment by the Governor. If you are interested in making a difference for engineers and surveyors in Idaho and protecting the public and want to fill a PE position on IPELS, please navigate to https://gov.idaho.gov/appointments/ and click on the link to the Application for Appointment.

EIT/EI eligible for the PE?

An email was sent to all those EI/EITs that are now eligible to take the PE (since decoupling the exam from the experience) on 11-15-19. It provided a heads-up on the upcoming April 2020 exam cycle and noted a PE Exam review course by University of Idaho

Signing up for the national examinations is easy!

It is easy for engineering and surveying students and professional applicants to register for the examinations. All applicants for the examinations may now enroll directly with the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) at www.ncees.org/exams

Registration for the CBT PE Mechanical, Fire Protection, and Industrial and Systems exams opened on Monday, November 4, 2019. For the PE Mechanical exam, the first appointments will begin in April 2020. For the PE Fire Protection and Industrial and Systems exams, their date will be October 22, 2020.
