NCEES Exam Schedule for the PE and SE Exams

CBT Exams

The NCEES started the process of converting their exams to computer-based testing in 2011. The benefits of a CBT exam include enhanced security and the ability to proctor the test year-round, rather than only twice a year.

Most PE exams have not gone CBT yet, but are in the process of this transition. Here is a conversion schedule of when specific PE exams will transition to CBT.
