Registering for the April 2020 PE examination - The Board will start accepting applications for the April 2020 exams after November 1, 2019
On April 23, 2018, the Ohio Board moved to an online licensing system which will allow you to fully manage your applications and licensing through the online portal. Your PE exam application will need to be submitted through the online portal. Directions below can help walk you through the process of creating an account through the online portal and submitting an application.
Before you begin the application process, you will first need to create an account in the online system.
***Please note, if you have never applied for an exam or license through the Ohio Engineer’s and Surveyor’s Board, you will be creating an account by clicking the “I do not have a license” button in the licensing portal. If you have submitted an application or taken a previous engineering or surveying exam in Ohio, you most likely already have an account in the system so will need to click on “I have a license”
Creating an account in the eLicense Ohio licensing portal
Once you have created an account in the eLicense Ohio licensing portal, you can apply for exam approval through the portal.
