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."

Signing up for the FE or FS exam is easy!

It is easy for engineering and surveying students to register for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) or the Fundamentals of Surveying Examination (FS). Beginning back in June 1, 2015, students now enroll directly with the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) at http://ncees.org/exams/, and then register for the FE or FS examination seat at a Pearson-VUE test center. This enables students to take and pass the FE or FS examination and then, afterward, apply to the Board for their Intern Certificate.

30 August 2016 Newsletter Email Debacle

Our apologies. When we passed the updated list of email addresses to our host (OCIO Idaho) and they uploaded them in bulk to the listserv application they host for us, about have of the fully moderate flags didn't get set.

What that meant was that for everyone whose moderate flag wasn't set and who replied to the group email address, their reply went to the whole list serv again (and again and again). We were able to get the OCIO to reset those flags and stop the proliferation of emails by about 1:30 pm 8-30-16 -- so about 3 hrs of additional emails were sent out.

The OCIO hopes to have new software with better controls in place for the next newsletter email - which will be in about six (6) months or so. Thank you, thank you to all who didn't reply and simply routed the extra mail to the trash. We hope to have controls in place to ensure that this doesn't happen again.
