News and Updates:

Congratulations to the October 2018 examinees that passed the PE exam (NCEES released results to examinees on 12/6/18).  

Candidates that passed the exam need to be approved by DAPE’s Council for a PE license. This will happen at our January Council meeting. Then you will hear from us on the steps you'll need to take to become an active PE. If your contact information has changed since taking the exam, please email office@dape.org with current information.

If you failed the exam, you will be hearing from us soon on your eligibility to register for the  NCEES exam in April 2019. Please be patient, as we have many files to update. 


The December Examining Committee Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, December 19.


DAPE's office hours have changed to 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.


Candidates hoping to register for the October 2019 PE Exam need to submit an application for examination to DAPE by June 1, 2018 (the deadline for the April 2019 PE Exam was December 1).


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.
