News and Updates:

Save the date for two upcoming training sessions (free to our licensed PEs):

1) Thursday October 17 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM in Dover: Ethical Decision Making. This is the same program that we offered in New Castle County in May 2019, so if you attended that session, you won't be eligible to attend this one. 

2) Thursday November 14 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM in Dover: A Technical Forum for PEs and Delaware Building Officials. This will be most useful for Civil Engineers, and registration will be limited. Stay tuned for more details. 


Our 2019 Certificate of Authorization renewal window is open now. The renewal deadline is September 30 (but your best bet is to renew now, to avoid the rush, and allow time to submit required documentation). Use this link to log in and renew your certificate:



We send DAPE communications to your work email address. If your preferred email address is different, you can log in to our system and edit your work email address. Be sure that you have "no-reply@dape.org" in your address book to receive our communications. 


You can read DAPE's Forty-Sixth Annual Report here.


Candidates hoping to register for the October 2019 PE Exam need to submit an application for examination to DAPE by June 1, 2019.


The Certificate of Authorization and PE license renewal deadline was June 30, 2018. All PEs who renew after this date need to complete a CPC audit. You can find our CPC guidelines here. Please note the following: 

Licensees who are residents of jurisdictions other than Delaware shall meet the CPC requirements of their resident jurisdiction. If the licensee resides in a jurisdiction that has no continuing professional competency (CPC) requirement, or the licensee is exempt from the CPC requirement in the licensee's resident jurisdiction, the licensee must meet the requirements of Delaware.
