An applicant for certification as an engineer-in-training, a land surveyor-in-training, a geologist-in-training, or a soil scientist-in-training must take all parts of the applicable fundamentals examination at one time. An applicant for licensure as a professional engineer, land surveyor, professional geologist, or professional soil scientist must pass the applicable fundamentals examination prior to taking the professional examination, except for an applicant who meets the requirements for waiver of the fundamentals examination.

An applicant for licensure as a professional engineer, professional geologist, or professional soil scientist must take all parts of the professional examination at one time.

Subp. 4.

Reexamination.

An applicant who does not receive a passing grade in an examination may submit a new application for examination. The application must be accompanied by an application fee as required under Minnesota Statutes, section 326.105. The board shall require an applicant failing an examination three or more times to submit evidence of improved qualifications before approving a new application for examination.

Subp. 5.

Date and place of examination.

Oral interviews may be given each year at such times as may be designated by the board. A candidate who files an application for licensure by examination and is determined to be eligible for admission to the examination will be informed of the date and place of the examination in writing. Examinations shall be scheduled once the applicant's application is approved.

Subp. 6.

Registration in another state.

An applicant duly registered in another state and whose registration is current, upon application for a temporary permit and notification from the Minnesota board that the temporary permit has been granted may practice the applicant's profession according to Minnesota Statutes, section 326.13, while the application for licensure or certification is pending board review.

The plans, specifications, and reports prepared by the applicant during the period in which the application is pending must bear the certification stamp of the state in which the applicant is registered along with a statement that the applicant has applied for registration in Minnesota and that the application is pending. The applicant shall place this stamp on each sheet of the set of drawings prepared for the project and on the title sheet of specifications and reports.

The Minnesota board does not require the use of a seal. If the state in which the applicant is registered has a seal or provisions for signing and dating plans, specifications, and reports, this will be acceptable. If the seal does not provide for signing and dating the plans, the applicant shall sign and date the plans under the seal imprint on each plan certified.
