State Representative Louis Blessing (R-Colerain Township) today applauded the passage of House Bill 202 through the Ohio House. This legislation works to update the examination and registration process for engineers and surveyors in Ohio.

H.B. 202 modernizes the educational process by allowing for computerized testing of the Fundamentals of Engineering and Principles and Practice of Engineering exams as they are currently taken only twice a year in paper and pencil form. The result will be a more secure and cost-effective test.

In addition, it renames the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology “ABET, Inc.” as it relates to the Professional Engineers and Professional Surveyors Law, and changes surveying course hours from quarters to semesters. H.B. 202 also extends the duration of a certificate issued from one to two years.

The law passed the House with bipartisan support and will now go to the Senate for consideration.
