Licensure Under Attack

Registration is now closed.

An archived copy will be available as part of the 2018 15 Free courses launching January 15.

There is a significant difference between a barber and a professional engineer, but many state politicians are naïvely classifying the two together. Since the start of 2016, 25 states have introduced legislation and/or regulations that would erode and even destroy PE licensure as we know it today, all in the name of job creation.

NSPE is fighting to ensure that professional engineering is rightfully considered a learned profession and its license is treated like a medical license. In this one-hour webinar, NSPE Executive Director Mark Golden, NCEES CEO Jerry Carter, and Arizona Board of Technical Registration's Executive Director Melissa Cornelius will address the concerted national effort to undermine licensure on a state-by-state basis.

Participants will:

  • Learn more about the proposed threats occurring across the states;
  • Understand how the proposed threats impact the PE;
  • Identify how the threat has grown in 2016 and 2017; and
  • Gain insight on what to expect in 2018.
