The Bottom Line

Department of Business and Professional Regulation

September 1, 2017


Engineering marvels provide a wonderful accent to our great state of Florida. From cityscapes and skyscrapers to our beautiful and unique bridges, engineers have left their mark on the Sunshine State.

The Florida Board of Professional Engineers exists to regulate the practice of engineering in Florida, helping to make sure that these constructs are safe for the public and that the professionals working on them are trained and licensed.

The board is responsible for reviewing applications, administering exams, licensing qualified applicants, and regulating and enforcing the proper practice of engineering in the state. To help the professional development of engineers, all licensed engineers in Florida are required to complete 18 hours of continuing education in order to renew their licenses.

Practicing engineering or offering engineering services without a license is a violation of Florida Statute, and this can be a serious threat to public health and safety. The state has over 35,000 active licensed engineers, and you can check the status or verify a license for any engineer or company by going to www.myfloridalicense.com or calling the Board at (850) 521-0500.

If you suspect that any unlicensed engineering practices are taking place, please report it to the Florida Board of Professional Engineers by email at board@FBPE.org.
