I am trying to figure out whether my state will let me take the FE exam and become an Engineer in Training. Since I have a BS in Math and an MS in physics I do not have the ABET accreditation. I've tried calling the State licensing board, and every time I just get a generic call center person who does not know anything about it. She is supposed to answer all the license questions from nurses, engineers, ...etc so she could not answer my question. So I tried to call NCEES who administers the FE and PE exams. They only allow you to use their live chat feature on their website to ask questions. I waited over an hour to talk to someone, and she ended up just clicking auto-response buttons when I asked her questions. I even called her out on that and she continued to do it and did not answer my questions. She finally told me to ask my state's licensing board about my questions....so I'm now in an infinite feedback loop. WTF am I supposed to do? One thing I did learn is that in my state you are not required to make an application for EIT before you register for the exam, so theoretically you could take the exam first and then apply for EIT. But I still do not know if I am even qualified to take the exam in the first place.
