NCEES Records:

 

An NCEES record contains documents required for registration.  Endorsement applications typically require, among any other information, college transcripts, reference letters, verification of examinations and a verified experience record.  NCEES offers a fee based service that will assemble and verify documents that need to accompany an application for registration.  If you are interested in creating an NCEES record, additional information can be found at https://ncees.org/records/.

 

Commercial License

 

Obtaining a Certificate of Commercial Practice (COCP) from the North Dakota State Board of Registration for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors is a two-part process.  One of the requirements to obtain a COCP is a registration with the North Dakota Secretary of State.  Contact the North Dakota Secretary of State’s office at (701) 328-4284 or visit their website at www.nd.gov/sos.  Complete the forms required by the Secretary of State according to their instructions.  When you return the forms to the Secretary of State, contact this office and let us know that the forms have been filed.  Once compliance with the Secretary of State requirements has been verified by the Board of Registration, we can proceed with your application for a COCP.  The Board of Registration will work in conjunction with the Secretary of State as much as possible, but it is still the responsibility of the applicant to forward all required information to the appropriate agency.

Intern

 

North Dakota recognizes that the term “Intern” and either Engineer or Land surveyor “in training” mean the same thing.  If you want to be registered as either a Land Surveyor or Engineer Intern, use this application form.  To be registered as an Intern, you must have already taken and passed the Fundamentals exam given by NCEES and have the appropriate education and experience.  Education and experience requirements are found here.
