The State Registration Board for Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors and Geologists regulates the practice, licensure and registration of engineers, land surveyors and geologists in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in order to safeguard life, health and property. The Board also certifies engineers-in-training and surveyors-in-training. The functions of the Board include investigating, approving or disapproving engineering, surveying, and geology applications for those desiring to be licensed in Pennsylvania.
In the current renewal, ONLY the Legal Questions require the submission of documentation.
In accordance with section 4.2 of
Engineer Land Surveyor and Geologist Registration Law, 63 P.S. § 151.2, an
applicant cannot begin accruing four
or more years of progressive experience to qualify for the principles
and practice of engineering examination until AFTER the engineer-in
training certificate (EIT) is issued.
It is the responsibility of the
