AMENDATORY SECTION (Amending Order PM 738, filed 5/27/88)



WAC 196-12-010  Applications. A professional engineer (PE) applicant must have passed the first stage examination (the fundamentals-of-engineering (FE) examination) and be enrolled as an engineer-in-training (EIT), or qualify to waive the FE examination in accordance with WAC 196-12-050, before he or she can take the second stage (PE) examination. If the applicant has at least eight years of qualifying engineering experience, the PE examination may be applied for at the same time that he or she applies for the FE examination. The PE application may also be submitted before the results of the FE examination have been received, provided the application is submitted at least four months before the second stage examination date.

All applications ((shall be sent to the registrar of the board,)) must be completed on forms provided by the board and filed with the executive director at the board's ((official)) address((, on forms provided by the board)). The deadline for ((receipt of)) properly completed applications ((properly filled out and)) accompanied by the ((application)) appropriate fee and charge as listed in WAC 196-26-020 is four months ((before)) prior to the date of the examination. ((Verification of the applicant's claimed experience must be in the board office three months before the date of the examination.)) Late applications ((received after the deadline)) will be ((held for consideration)) considered for a later examination. ((Lack of verification of experience will also cause the application to be held for a later examination. Those who have previously taken the examination and failed or those who qualified and did not appear for the examination are required to notify the board office in writing three months before the next examination which they intend to take.)) Supporting documents such as college transcripts and experience verification forms must be submitted in a timely manner in order for the board to meet examination preparation deadlines. An applicant will be notified what documents are missing, and a date set by the board by which those documents must be received. Failure to have the missing documents sent to the board by the defined deadline will result in the applicant being delayed until a later examination.

To reschedule the taking of an examination, a written request accompanied by the applicable fee and charge as listed in WAC 196-26-020 is required at least three months prior to the examination date. Once an application has been approved, no further application is required.

(e) Satisfactory completion of each year of a nonapproved curriculum in engineering may be granted up to a maximum of one-half of one year of experience. Coursework in such a program must be equivalent to that of an approved curriculum to grant maximum experience credit.

(f) Graduation in a curriculum other than engineering will be evaluated by the board.

(g) Postgraduate study in engineering may be given credit up to one year. A postgraduate degree must be obtained to be granted maximum experience credit.

(h) Applicants having engineering degrees from countries other than the United States or Canada may be required to have their transcripts evaluated by a transcript evaluation service approved by the board. This evaluation will be performed at the applicant's expense, and the applicant will be responsible for submitting all the necessary information to the evaluation service. The board shall not take any action on an application until the report from the evaluation service and all other documents are received.

(i) The board may approve engineering degree programs from countries other than the United States and Canada. A listing of said approved programs will be maintained in the board office. Graduation from such an approved program will exempt the applicant from utilizing the transcript evaluation service.

(2) Colleges recognized by the board: All student's credits from curricula approved by the accreditation board for engineering and technology are accepted. In the state of Washington student's credits from other curricula than those approved by the accreditation board for engineering and technology may be accepted at the discretion of the board.

(3) In evaluating the work experience required to qualify for registration, the following criteria will be used:

(a) In the normal educational sequence, experience gained between semesters or quarters will not be considered as professional experience.

(b) In situations where the experience/educational track is intermixed with a degree attained late in the sequence, educational achievement will not be counted in addition to work experience in determining total experience. However, professional work experience will not necessarily be considered as starting subsequent to graduation but will be evaluated in total with consideration given to progression in level of technical complexity and responsibility.

(c) Where a degree is not attained, but at least three years of education in an approved curriculum has been completed prior to a work experience track, the education will be considered in conjunction with the work experience in determining the total years of experience.

(d) Engineering teaching of a character satisfactory to the board may be recognized as professional level experience up to a maximum of two years.

(e) Any work experience gained in a situation which violates the provisions of chapter 18.43 RCW or Title 196 WAC will not be credited towards the statutory experience requirement.

(f) The statutory experience requirement to qualify for examination must be completed sixty days prior to the date of examination. Furthermore, the applicant is to provide the necessary verification of said experience up to the sixty-day limit.

(4) An applicant must have passed the first stage of the examination and be enrolled as an E.I.T. in accordance with WAC 196-12-050 before applying for the second stage or branch examination.)) The law requires eight years of experience in engineering work of a character satisfactory to the board and passing the fundamentals-of-engineering examination to be eligible for the second stage (PE) engineer examination. These eight years must be of broad based, progressive experience to include gaining knowledge and comprehension of engineering subjects and applying engineering principles. The eight years of experience must be completed sixty days prior to the date of the examination.

The board shall evaluate all experience, which includes education, on a case-by-case basis and approve such experience as appropriate. The board will use the following criteria in evaluating an applicant's experience record:

(1) Education experience will be based on transcripts. Therefore, any transcripts not previously sent to the board's office should be submitted for maximum experience credit. Education may be approved as experience based on the following:

(a) Graduation with a baccalaureate degree in engineering approved by the engineer accreditation commission (EAC) of the accreditation board for engineering and technology (ABET) shall be equivalent to four years of required experience. Satisfactory completion of each year of such an approved engineering curriculum is equivalent to one year of experience.

(b) Graduation with a baccalaureate degree in a program in engineering technology approved by the technology accreditation commission (TAC) of the accreditation board for engineering and technology (ABET) is equivalent to three years of required experience. Satisfactory completion of each year of such an approved program is equivalent to three-fourths of one year of experience.

(c) Graduation in an approved four year non-ABET accredited engineering curriculum will be given a maximum of three years of experience.

(d) A maximum of one year may be granted for postgraduate engineering courses approved by the board for those applicants having earned degrees in accordance with (a), (b) or (c) of this subsection.

(e) A nonengineering bachelor of science program can be given a maximum of two years of experience. If the degree is followed by a master of science in engineering from a school that has an ABET accredited undergraduate program in the same discipline as the master's degree, a maximum of four years of experience may be granted for this combination of education.

(f) Graduation with an associate degree in engineering from an approved curriculum may be equivalent of up to two years of required experience.

(g) Education gained in a piecemeal fashion over time where no degree is conferred will be granted up to a maximum of two years of experience. For the purpose of this subsection, education in a "piecemeal fashion" means: One or two classes taken at a time, often at different schools; seminars; workshops; and classes taken through industry and the military. In order to determine the appropriate amount of experience, this type of education will be compared to college coursework in a baccalaureate of engineering technology degree program.

(h) The board may approve engineering degree programs from other countries.

(i) A number of foreign degree programs are included in mutual recognition agreements entered into by ABET with other accrediting authorities. Applicants with a degree from one of these programs will be evaluated in accordance with (a) and (b) of this subsection. A list of those approved mutual recognition degree programs is maintained in the board office.

(ii) Applicants having engineering degrees from programs in countries that are not on the mutual recognition list will be required to have their transcripts evaluated by a transcript evaluation service approved by the board. This evaluation will be performed at the applicant's expense, and the applicant will be responsible for submitting all necessary information to the evaluation service. If the evaluation service says that the foreign degree is equivalent to an ABET accredited degree, experience will be granted in accordance with (a) or (b) of this subsection. If the evaluation says that the foreign degree is not equivalent to an ABET accredited degree, then a maximum of three years of experience may be granted in accordance with (c) of this subsection.

(iii) An applicant with an undergraduate foreign degree from a program that is not on the mutual recognition list, can waive the requirement for a degree evaluation if they have a master of science in engineering from a school that has an ABET accredited undergraduate engineering degree program in the same discipline as the master's degree. A maximum of four years of experience can be granted for this combination of education.

(i) Any other education will be taken into account and evaluated on its merits.

(j) Work experience gained between semesters or quarters or during summers while enrolled in an approved curriculum will be considered as part of the educational process. The board grants one year of experience for a year of approved education including any associated work experience within that year.

(2) Work experience will be approved based on a demonstration of competency and progressive responsibility in the analysis, synthesis and evaluation of engineering concepts and data, under the direct supervision of a person authorized by chapter 18.43 RCW or other applicable statute to practice engineering. Under the general guidance and direct supervision of an authorized professional, the applicant must be in a position of making independent judgments and decisions in the following experience areas:

(a) Formulating conclusions and recommendations;

(b) Identifying design and/or project objectives;

(c) Identifying possible alternative methods and concepts;

This experience must be supervised by a licensed professional engineer in the branch of structural engineering or a licensed professional engineer with significant structural engineering work experience. Up to five years of this experience may be gained through education in accordance with subsection (1) of this section. In order to be granted the fifth year, a postgraduate degree in engineering with a concentration of structural courses must be obtained from a school that has an ABET accredited undergraduate program in engineering.

(4) Engineering teaching character may be considered satisfactory experience up to a maximum of two years.

(5) Applied research is considered satisfactory experience when it meets the following conditions:

(a) The research must be conducted under the guidance or supervision of a licensed engineer. For the purposes of this subsection, guidance or supervision means being cognizant of all applicable aspects of the work and a reviewer of all applicable reporting documentation.

(b) The principle result(s) of the research are in a published report or a recognized engineering journal article in which the applicant is the first author or the work is adequately documented and available to the board upon request.

(6) For military engineering experience to be considered acceptable, it should be similar to engineering experience that would be gained in a nonmilitary environment as defined in subsection (2) of this section, and such experience must be verified.

(7) Any work experience gained without the supervision of a professional engineer authorized to practice under chapter 18.43 RCW or an individual authorized by another statute to practice engineering, or any work experience gained in any other situation which violates the provisions of chapter 18.43 RCW or Title 196 WAC will not be counted toward the statutory experience requirement.

(2) The following rules shall apply:

(a) Applicants must be enrolled as an engineer-in-training in order to take the branch examination.

(b) Applicants enrolled as an EIT in any other state, territory, or possession of the United States, the District of Columbia, or a foreign country by virtue of a written examination comparable to that given by the state of Washington will be exempt from taking the fundamentals of engineering examination.

(c) All qualified applicants are required to take the examination in the specific branch of engineering in which they desire to become registered.

(d) All three parts of the examination must be passed to become licensed as a professional engineer. Except for candidates who have been approved to waive the fundamentals and engineering exam under WAC 196-12-050(2); those candidates must write only the branch and law exams.

(3) Applicants for a professional engineer (PE) license, either by examination or comity, must take and pass the law portion of the examination effective as follows:

Examination

Starting with the April 16, 1993, examination, and continuing with future licensing examinations, PE applicants being examined for initial licensure shall also take the law exam. Initial licensure, in the context of this section, means licensure for an applicant who has not previously obtained a professional license under chapter 18.43 RCW in the state of Washington.



Comity



Any applicant for licensure by comity whose application is postmarked on or after April 1, 1993, shall take the law examination.

(a) The law examination will cover the following sections of statute and administrative code:

Chapter 18.43 RCW;

Chapter 196-04 WAC;

Chapter 196-08 WAC;

Chapter 196-12 WAC;

Chapter 196-16 WAC;

Chapter 196-20 WAC;

Chapter 196-24 WAC;

Chapter 196-26 WAC;

Chapter 196-27 WAC.

(b) The examination is multiple choice format and will be administered as a "take-home" exam. The law exam shall be taken after the branch exam.

(c) A candidate failing the law examination may retake the examination upon notice that they did not pass.)) Except as provided in WAC 196-12-050, to become licensed as a professional engineer the candidate must pass two stages of examination. The first stage is the fundamentals-of-engineering examination. The second stage examination consists of multiple parts including the principles and practice (branch) examination and law and ethics examination. The law and ethics exam is a take-home examination covering chapter 18.43 RCW and Title 196 WAC. The fundamentals-of-engineering examination must be passed, or waived in accordance with WAC 196-12-050, before taking the second stage examination.

Examinations are given at times and places designated by the board. The schedule of future examinations and examination syllabi may be obtained from the board office. Examinees will not be allowed to view any examination material prior to taking the examination other than syllabi available to the public or sample examination booklets published by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying. If one examination part is failed, only that examination part must be retaken.

(2) If a professional engineer holding a current registration in the state of Washington wants to become licensed in multiple branches of engineering, an additional principle and practice examination must be taken in each branch.

(3) The branch of structural engineering requires a more exhaustive principle and practice examination to protect the public safety. In addition to the stage 1 fundamentals-of-engineering examination, to become licensed as a professional engineer in the branch of structural engineering, the candidate must pass the stage 2 examination comprised of all parts of the principles and practice of structural engineering examination, including a demonstration of competency in structural engineering issues important to Washington state, and the law and ethics examination.

(4) Except for the law and ethics examination, an exam part may be reviewed if it is failed. Examinees who achieve a passing score will not be permitted to review their examination. The purpose of examination review is to permit the examinee an opportunity to review his or her exam in order to identify areas of poor performance. This is not an opportunity to take notes for future reference.

Failing examinees may review their examination (test booklet, answer sheet and/or solution pamphlet and answer key) during a period of time prescribed by the board. Examinees who fail to review their exam during the prescribed time will not be scheduled for an examination review. The examination review guidelines are as follows:

(a) An examinee can review his or her examination one time only. An appointment for this review must be arranged in advance with board staff.

(b) All examination reviews will be in the presence of a member of board staff. No one may accompany the examinee during the examination review, except where persons with disability require assistance. In that case, the need for assistance must be conveyed to staff when the review appointment is made.

(c) For examinations having machine scored answer sheets, the examinee will be allowed to review a copy of his or her answer sheet, not the original.

(d) Each reviewer will be given a review sheet that they can take with them following the review. This review sheet will include the problem number, problem subject matter, score achieved for each problem and total score. Reviewers will not be permitted to add further information to the review sheet.
