In 1995, SAME entered into an agreement with the North Carolina Board of Examiners for Engineers and Land Surveyors (NCBELS) to offer engineer licensure exams overseas. This SAME-NCBELS partnership has given more than 110 people the opportunity to take their licensure exams in Germany instead of making an expensive and time-consuming trip to a U.S. testing site. The KMC exam site has hosted examinees from across the European continent, the UK, Turkey, and the Persian Gulf. The examinees have been from all branches of the military, DoD Civil Service, and DoDDS.
The Fundamentals of Engineering and Professional Engineering Examinations are offered in Germany through the North Carolina State Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying (NCBELS), and the Kaiserslautern Post, SAME. The NCBELS web site
includes applications and fee schedules. Applications must be submitted to the North Carolina Board.
For additional background on the examinations see the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES
) web site.
Kaiserslautern Post, Society of American Military Engineers is not involved with the processing of exam applications, nor the approval of such applications. The North Carolina Board approves or disapproves applications to take the examinations. Questions regarding the approval of exam applications must be directed to the North Carolina Board. The North Carolina Board provides a list of persons approved to take the examination only a few weeks before examination dates.
