Established in 1908, we're the second oldest licensing board of its kind in the country. One of our very own, Marcel Garsaud, a civil engineer from New Orleans, served as the first president of NCEES (National Council of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors). We are governed by Title 37 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes, and for over 100 years the LAPELS Board has worked to "safeguard life, health, and property and to promote the public welfare" - and we continue to do so today.
We are always looking for ways in which we can be more responsive to our registrants, applicants and the public. Our website is just one step we have taken to accomplish that goal, and to open more lines of communication.
Our website contains information for applicants, both comity and exam; filing complaints; history of the board; frequently asked questions; and contact links. We encourage you to become familiar with the wealth of information contained here and send us your comments and suggestions. To send us an email, click here.
