What's next after passing the PE Exam?

Once you pass the NCEES PE examination and obtain the requisite verified progressive engineering experience, you will need to do the following:
  • Establish a NCEES record. Once the record is complete, you will need to request that NCEES transmit the record to LAPELS.
  • Once your NCEES record is complete, you will need to apply to LAPELS for licensure by completing the online Application by Examination (below).
