Application Information and Forms
All P.E. and P.L.S. applicants will need a copy of the "7/1/2018 Laws and Rules Pertaining to the Practice of the Professions of Engineering and Land Surveying"
with each of the application packets on the right. You may print it from this link (it is approximately 60 pages). If you're an Exam Applicant
for initial licensure and using a NCEES Record for application, you still need to fill-out an application on the right (PE by Exam with NCEES Record).
If you're Comity applicant with an NCEES Record, please select that application form from the list at the right (e.g., Professional Engineer or Surveyor by Comity with NCEES Record)
If you were not originally licensed in another jurisdiction of the United States, or originally licensed in a licensing system currently considered equivalent by the Board, you must take and pass both NCEES examinations (FE and PE or FS and PS), meet the educational requirements, meet the experience requirements and provide your Social Security Number (SSN) on the application. The SSN is required pursuant to Idaho Code 73-122(1). If a SSN has not been issued, then you must meet the requirements of Idaho Code 73-122(3) before your application is complete and ready to be considered by the Board (See also Idaho Code 7-1416).
You should also read Qualifications and Fee Information for Applicants (OF-6) (PDF) and Examination Dates.
If your engineering degree is not accredited by EAC/ABET or is not listed in the Washington Accord signatories as an approved program, then you may need a third-party evaluation of your academic credentials. Our Board accepts evaluations from the NCEES Credentials Evaluation Service
If you took an exam in another U.S. jurisdiction that is required for your Idaho application (all comity applicants and PE or PLS examination candidates who took their EIT/LSIT or FE/FS in another jurisdiction) please click NCEES.org. Signup for an account and request verifications be sent to the Idaho Board - or simply fill-out the verification request forms in the packet and mail to the other Board.
If you were originally licensed in a Canadian Province, please have that Province verify your license and discipline status directly to the Idaho Board. If you were originally licensed as a C.Eng.in the United Kingdom, please email the Engineers Council at email@example.com and have your credential independently validated to the Idaho Board by the Engineering Council. If originally licensed in a Canadien province or in the U.K., please read Board Policy on Comity Licensure for Foreign Applicants
