It is the policy of the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) to support mandatory continuing professional competency for licensed Professional Engineers.

NSPE strongly supports comity among licensing jurisdictions to provide practice mobility of Professional Engineers. To promote comity NSPE encourages uniformity in continuing education programs through use of the NCEES Model Rules for Continuing Professional Competence and urges its state societies to assist state licensure boards in implementing these Rules in all jurisdictions.

NSPE further endorses the efforts of the professional/technical societies, engineering schools, and industry to provide continuing education to licensed engineers in the various jurisdictions throughout the U.S.
