The 2014 Fire Protection Engineering Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) Exam is set for October 25, 2014.
The following is important information about the exam:
One of the most important steps a fire protection engineer can make early in his or her career, is to place themselves on a course to becoming licensed as a Professional Engineer (PE).
Professional licensing as a fire protection engineer brings many advantages. As an individual, the licensed fire protection engineer gets an important credential bringing recognition from the engineering community, better chances for professional advancement, and the potential for a higher salary. In most states, professional licensure is required by law to offer engineering services to the public. Employers of fire protection engineers benefit from having their employees licensed. It is not only a competitive advantage; it is tangible evidence that an engineer is competent in fire protection engineering. SFPE has a Position Statement on professional licensure. For more information about the benefits of engineering licensure and how to become a PE, visit www.NCEES.org.
