NSPE Champions the PE License

 With PE licensure resources

  • NSPE is the only organization that advocates for the licensed professional engineer. There are a lot of other great organizations out there for the engineering profession, but NSPE is on the professional engineer focus.

 By taking action on issues

  • Advocacy is important to the professional engineer because we need to be focusing on licensure and the protection of that license. If we're not protecting the license, we're not doing our ethical responsibility to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public.

NSPE Powers Professional Advancement

 By offering 15 free PDHs

  • In most states, it’s a requirement that in order to maintain your PE license, that you maintain a certain number of PDHs every year. NSPE’s 15 free PDH program really helps satisfy that requirement.
