The board has proposed rule changes to clarify the definition of land surveying and create guidelines for the use of electronic documents and signatures. To give you an opportunity to comment on these proposals, we’re presenting a series of workshops around the state in May. If you can’t attend a workshop, you can email us your comments.
The National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) is transitioning to computer-based testing for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) and Fundamentals of Land Surveying (FLS) exams in 2014. Moving to this format will allow for more flexible scheduling, create more uniform testing conditions, and make exam content more secure. For more information, visit the NCEES website.
The board has developed this guideline to help licensees and public officials understand and develop processes for the use of digital media in the engineering and surveying professions.
The National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) Principles and Practice of Surveying 6-hour exam will become a closed-book exam in April 2013. At that time, examinees will no longer be allowed to bring reference material into the exam room. The Washington State Specific 2-hour Land Surveyor’s exam will remain an open book exam.
Standard licensing requirements for professional engineers and surveyors approved by the National Standards Institute (ANSI).
