NCEES Approves Revised Approach to Education Initiative
The licensing boards that make up NCEES have voted to modify the approach to requiring additional education for initial licensure originally intended to be effective in 2020. The additional education requirement called for an engineering licensure candidate to obtain a master's degree or its equivalent before intial licensure. This latest decision means that in 2020 the NCEES Model Law and Model Rules will continue to require and engineering bachelor's degree from an EAC/ABET-accredited program to fulfill the education requirement for engineering licensure.
ARE Retake Policy Shortened
Effective October 1, 2014, the wait time for retesting for the ARE divisions will decrease from six months to 60 days.
