Remember what it was like when you were notified you passed the PE or LS exam and you were eligible to become licensed? It was a milestone moment in your career! To commemorate that moment and to underscore the importance of becoming licensed, the South Carolina Society of Professional Engineers and the Board sponsor ceremonies twice annually for individuals who passed the most recent PE and LS examinations. Held in the State House, the ceremony includes presentation of certificates by Board members (with much picture-taking by relatives and friends) and congratulations and encouragement to the new licensees to become involved in their chosen profession as a way of giving back and mentoring others. The ceremony is followed by a reception. It is a proud moment for parents, spouses, friends and others who helped along the way, and a very nice way to reward the newest professional engineers and surveyors who worked so hard to achieve the goal of becoming licensed.
