Introduction : What is PE?[Source : NSPE-USA; website : www.nspe.org ] : 

Preparation for the PR Exam 6 Introduction : What is PE?[Source : NSPE-USA; website : www.nspe.org ] A century ago, anyone could work as an engineer without proof of competency. In order to protect the public health, safety, and welfare, the first engineering licensure law was enacted in 1907 in Wyoming. Now every state regulates the practice of engineering to ensure public safety by granting only Professional Engineers (PEs) the authority to sign and seal engineering plans and offer their services to the public.

Introduction : What is PE?[Source : NSPE – USA; website : www.nspe.org ] : 

Preparation for the PR Exam 7 Introduction : What is PE?[Source : NSPE – USA; website : www.nspe.org ] To use the PE seal, engineers must complete several steps to ensure their competency. Earn a four-year degree in engineering from an accredited university Pass the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam Complete four years of progressive engineering experience under a PE Pass the Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) exam

Introduction : What makes a PE different from an engineer? : 

Preparation for the PR Exam 8 Introduction : What makes a PE different from an engineer? PEs must also continuously demonstrate their competency and maintain and improve their skills by fulfilling continuing education requirements depending on the state in which they are licensed. Only a licensed engineer may prepare, sign and seal, and submit engineering plans and drawings to a public authority for approval, or seal engineering work for public and private clients. PEs shoulder the responsibility for not only their work, but also for the lives affected by that work and must hold themselves to high ethical standards of practice.

Introduction : What makes a PE different from an engineer? : 

Preparation for the PR Exam 9 Introduction : What makes a PE different from an engineer? Licensure for a consulting engineer or a private practitioner is not something that is merely desirable; it is a legal requirement for those who are in responsible charge of work, be they principals or employees. Licensure for engineers in government has become increasingly significant. In many federal, state, and municipal agencies, certain governmental engineering positions, particularly those considered higher level and responsible positions, must be filled by licensed professional engineers. Many states require that individuals teaching engineering must also be licensed. Exemptions to state laws are under attack, and in the future, those in education, as well as industry and government, may need to be licensed to practice. Also, licensure helps educators prepare students for their future in engineering.

Professional Registration –UK[Source : IET – UK] : 

Preparation for the PR Exam 10 Professional Registration –UK[Source : IET – UK] Why become registered? Categories of registration. Benefits of registration. Maintaining your registration. [Source : Institution of Engineering & Technology, UK. Website : www.theiet.org ]

Why become registered? : 

Preparation for the PR Exam 11 Why become registered? Professional registration is an important milestone for any engineer or technologist. The IET is licensed by the Engineering Council to award the professional engineering qualifications defined in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) and the Information and Communications Technology Technician (ICTTech) Standard. Becoming professionally registered shows your peers and employers that you have demonstrated professional competence.

Slide 12: 

Preparation for the PR Exam 12 Professional registration recognises your competence, commitment, skills and experience.

Categories of registration : 

Preparation for the PR Exam 13 Categories of registration Chartered Engineer (CEng); Incorporated Engineer (IEng); Engineering Technician (EngTech); ICT Technician (ICTTech). Chartered Engineers (CEng) who are IET registered can apply for International Professional Engineer (IntPE) professional registration. Incorporated Engineers (IEng) who are IET registered can apply for International Engineering Technologist (IntET) professional registration.

Benefits of registration. : 

Preparation for the PR Exam 14 Benefits of registration. Recognition as a professional in your field; Improved self motivation, career opportunities and salary prospects; Greater influence within your organisation and industry; Confirmation that you are a competent engineer; Connecting you with innovative, influential and inspirational people; International recognition of your qualifications.

Maintaining your registration. : 

Preparation for the PR Exam 15 Maintaining your registration. Currently there are no requirements for re-assessment once registration has been granted, and you will remain on the Engineering Council register whilst you remain a member of a licensed body. Joining the register confirms your commitment to both the Engineering Council's Guidelines for Institutions Codes of Conduct and the IET Rules of Conduct and your obligation to remain professionally competent through CPD.
