A New Registration Status is Now Being Offered

Woman writing on tablet. The Board is now authorized to offer Emeritus status licensure. Emeritus engineer or emeritus surveyor means a professional engineer or surveyor who has been registered for 15 consecutive years or longer and who is 65 years of age or older and who is not engaging or offering to engage in the practice of engineering or surveying.

Emeritus engineers and emeritus surveyors are not required to meet continuing education requirements.

Emeritus engineers and emeritus surveyors who wish to return to active practice must complete continuing education requirements for each exempted biennial renewal period, not to exceed two renewal periods and must submit applicable fees.

How does the new EMERITUS status differ from the RETIRED status?

Retired engineer or retired surveyor means a professional engineer or surveyor who is not engaging or offering to engage in the practice of engineering or surveying. Retired engineers and retired surveyors are not required to meet continuing education requirements.

Retired engineers and retired surveyors who wish to return to active practice must complete continuing education requirements for each exempted biennial renewal period, not to exceed two renewal periods and must submit applicable fees.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Only those currently in the ACTIVE status can apply for the EMERITUS status or the RETIRED status.
