Willett Engineering is licensed to provide structural engineering services in 37 States
States require engineers to have a Professional Engineering license to practice in their jurisdiction. The requirements for each state vary but the goal is to protect the safety, health and welfare of the general public. Because of the complexities and risks of structural engineering, each state may require different licenses to provide services. For the majority of states a Professional Engineering license allows structural engineers to provide consulting, forensic engineering, and sign and seal drawings.
To receive a Professional Engineering certification engineers must complete a four-year college degree, four years of apprenticeship under a structural engineer and pass two competency exams. After the initial license is obtained from the state licensure board, PEs must maintain their license through continuing education courses and self-study. Depending on the state licenses must be renewed every year or every two years.
