At the February 11, 2016, Regular Board meeting, of the Texas Board of Professional Engineers approved rules to allow for the 'decoupling' of the experience requirements for licensure and the approval to take the PE exam. These rules will officially be implemented in May 2016.

This change will allow a Texas Engineer in Training (EIT) to register for the PE exam prior to meeting the full experience requirement. The May implementation date means the new system will be in effect for the upcoming October 2016 PE exam but will not be applicable for the April 2016 exam.

"TBPE is pleased to offer flexibility for taking the PE exam in passing the "decoupling" provision," said TBPE Chairman Daniel Wong, PhD, PE "Decoupling does not change the current requirements for PE licensure or the PE exam itself but just offers a more flexible time line to accommodate different career and life paths of our future engineers".
