NCEES Seeks Help with Prof Activities and Knowledge Study for Industrial and Systems Engineering PE Exam

NCEES is seeking licensed industrial and systems engineers to participate in an online survey as part of the professional activities and knowledge study for the PE Industrial and Systems exam. This survey will be used to update the specifications for the exam. The information is posted online at http://ncees.org/ncees-seeks-industrial-systems-engineers-professional-expertise-advice/. A PDF of the news release is also available for download on this page.

Signing up for the FE or FS exam is easy!

It is easy for engineering and surveying students and other FE/FS applicants to register for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) or the Fundamentals of Surveying Examination (FS). Beginning back in June 1, 2015, applicants for the FE/FS Exam 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. Then, after completing all the requirements, apply to the Board for their Intern Certificate.

I Have Questions About

Many questions, including those related to Continuing Professional Development, can be answered on our General FAQ page, our Structural Engineering FAQ page and PLS Q&A. Please send the following specific requests to the individuals indicated below:

  • Requests for changes to license or certificate records
    • For active/current individual license or active/current intern certificate address changes, click https://www.accessidaho.org/ipels. We do not maintain current addresses for inactive/expired licenses or COAs.
    • For Company or Corporate Name and Address Changes, Corporate Changes to Responsible Charge listings, or License or Certificate Reinstatements, please visit https://www.accessidaho.org/ipels/coa/ .

    Company and Corporate Address Changes do not change addresses of individual licensees. Each licensee is responsible for their own address change.

    Applications for Licensure as a PE or PS do not update existing EIT/EI or LSIT/SI addresses and vice versa - individual changes do not change Company addresses. Company changes do not change individual addresses. Any address placed on your CPD log will not change your record address. You must submit changes per the above procedure

    PLEASE NOTE, we do currently not maintain fax numbers and maintain only ONE MAILING ADDRESS per license or certificate holder. This may be your personal address OR your employment address; whatever address you use for official notifications from the Board becomes public record. To review the address currently on file, please see Searches for Licensees. If you do not wish to change the address displayed, please do not submit a notification of change of address. For questions, please email edith.williams@ipels.idaho.gov
