NCEES is currently seeking licensed mining and mineral processing engineers to participate in a professional activities and knowledge study, or PAKS, for the PE Mining and Mineral Processing exam. The results of this study will be used to update specifications for the exam, which is used throughout the United States for licensing purposes.
NCEES requires a cross section of licensed professional engineers practicing mining or mineral processing—including those working in industry, consulting, the public sector, and academia—to complete an online survey about the tasks and knowledge required of a licensed mining or mineral processing engineer with 4 to 6 years of experience to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public. The survey can be completed in about 20 minutes.
“These studies help NCEES ensure its licensing exams remain relevant to current professional practice,” explained Director of Exam Services Tim Miller, P.E. “The value of this PAKS depends on the number of people who participate, so NCEES is eager to get a large response from P.E.s across all areas of mining and mineral processing engineering.”
