Licensing Issues For Architects, Engineers And Surveyors

The work performed by engineers, architects, surveyors and other construction industry professionals affects communities for generations. Their contributions to city planning and building construction drive communities forward. As such, these professionals are held to high standards with respect to both their work and personal lives. Pennsylvania's licensing boards are therefore strict in making sure people meet the requirements to obtain a license, and in enforcing the rules that govern these professions.

If you are having trouble procuring a license or if your license is threatened by an investigation into your behavior, reach out to a lawyer at Caldwell & Kearns, P.C., in Harrisburg, for advice. One of our attorneys, Peter M. Good has more than 20 years of experience in all phases of licensing for architects, engineers and surveyors. Not only is he experienced in handling license-related administrative procedures, but he also possesses a deep understanding of these professions and the nuances of each.

Defending Your License And Reputation

Much like medical employees and accountant/CPAs, construction professionals rely on their licenses in many ways. Licenses hold the key to making a living, but they also represent credibility. Your professional standing is in jeopardy if you are under investigation by the State Architects Licensure Board or the State Registration Board for Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors and Geologists.

Whether these boards are refusing to issue you a license or are threatening to take away your existing license, our Harrisburg attorneys can help. If you have an issue in your past, we can make necessary explanations to the Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs (BPOA) and the applicable board. If a current issue, such as chemical dependency, threatens your license, we will help you properly utilize the Professional Health Monitoring Program (PHMP), the Voluntary Recovery Program (VRP) and any other program that may be required.
