DCP: Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors Licensing

Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors Licensing

For candidates who passed the October 2016 exams: If you have completed all requirements for licensure, you will receive a licensing packet from the Connecticut State Board within the next 65 business days.

For candidates who failed the October 2016 exams: Register online with NCEES at www.ncees.org no later than February 23, 2016 for the April 2017 exam.



Beginning in January 2014 the FE and FS examinations will be delivered in a computer-based format. The examinations will be offered in two-month testing windows four times a year.

Candidates may only take the examination one time per testing window and no more than three times in a twelve month period. 


Connecticut has chosen the automatic model for approval, which is that examinees will be allowed to register directly with NCEES without prior approval by the Board.

FE and FS candidates who would like to be certified in Connecticut may register with NCEES at www.ncees.org. Candidates will pay NCEES the examination fee and will schedule their examination in their NCEES account. Candidates will then take their examination at a Pearson VUE testing location. Candidates will be required to read the NCEES Examinee Guide at http://ncees.org/exams/cbt/examinee-guide/


Upon receipt of a passing examination status you may apply with the Connecticut Board by obtaining an application at (www.ct.gov/dcp ) if you want to become certified as an engineer-in-training or surveyor-in-training. Please note that you must meet the Board’s requirements at the time of application.

Please be advised that Connecticut will only verify exam information to other state boards for candidates who have completed an application with the Connecticut Board.
