PROPOSED BOARD RULES - The deadline for comments is July 17, 2016.
Changes to §133.27 would implement a licensing agreement between the Texas Board of Professional Engineers and South Korea. The proposed rule changes to §133.41 and §133.43 would implement process changes related to enhancing engagement of Engineers in Training. These changes would allow a person to demonstrate enhanced competence and readiness for licensure. The standards for competence will be the same as under the current system, but this addition will allow an applicant to present additional accomplishments. Refer to the Rule Proposal Page at: http://engineers.texas.gov/proposed_6172016.html
