§ 37.32. References for certification as an engineer-in-training or licensure as a professional engineer.

 (a)  A candidate for licensure as a professional engineer, and a candidate for certification as an engineer-in-training who seeks to qualify for the examination based on experience, shall provide as references the names and addresses of at least five persons who can attest to the candidate’s good moral character and who either directly supervised the candidate or can otherwise verify the candidate’s experience. At least three of the references shall be professional engineers licensed in the United States who are unrelated to the candidate. The remaining references may be professional land surveyors, professional geologists or unli-censed engineers who, through education and experience, possess an equivalent level of expertise as that of a professional engineer. A reference who is not a professional engineer licensed in the United States is required to submit a curriculum vitae.

 (b)  If, in the opinion of the Board, the references adversely reflect on the candidate’s character or qualifications, the Board may withhold processing the candidate’s application until an investigation into the candidate’s character or qualifications, or both, is completed. The candidate will be notified in writing of any investigation that is being conducted. Based on the results of the investigation, the Board may require the candidate to submit additional references.


   The provisions of this §  37.32 amended under sections 4(b) and (l), 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4 of the Engineer, Land Surveyor and Geologist Registration Law (63 P. S. § §  151(b) and (l), 151.2, 151.3 and 151.4).
