The Arizona Board of Technical Registration is a self-sustaining regulatory board consisting of nine members, appointed by the Governor, who represent the professional fields regulated by the Board.
The Board reviews applications for engineers, architects, geologists, land surveyors, landscape architects, home inspectors, and alarm agents and determines if the applicants are qualified for licensure or certification. The Board also accepts complaints from the public, alleging violations of the standards of practice for these fields and creates policy statements for public guidance on health, safety, and welfare issues related to the practice of these professions.
Notice for Principles and Practices of Engineering or Principles and Practices of Land Surveying Applicants:
Effective July 5th, 2016, NCEES requires that all professional examination applicants gain authorization to test from the Arizona Board of Technical Registration.
While the Board does accept applications year-round, we do not guarantee authorization will be granted. Our approval process takes approximately 6-8 weeks.
Applicants who fail to submit an application for Exam Authorization prior to August 1, 2016 for the October 2016 examination may not receive approval since the NCEES registration deadline of September 1, 2016 does not allow adequate time for processing. As a result, many applicants will receive authorization for the April 2017 examination.
For a detailed listing of required documentation to complete an Exam Authorization application, please email your designated Licensing Specialist.
