Licensing - ISPE and NSPE promote licensing
of engineers and work hard to enforce state licensing laws. Our members
advocate strong registration laws and promote registration to non-licensed
engineers. You will have access to a variety of resources for engineers
preparing for licensure examinations and those seeking to practice in various
jurisdictions. We believe that protecting public health, safety and welfare is
a primary concern for professional engineers.
