Just took my West Virginia Masters and was curious if anyone else had taken it in the past few years.

The calcs seemed very subjective and extremely open to interpretation.

Why can't our licensing and exams be more in line with what Professional Engineers have? They only have to test once and then they just apply in each state they are requesting licensing for.

They also have registry for their credentials work history etc, I would gladly pay for that.

Seems silly to have to sit for a test in each state?

Many states reciprocate, you need to check out each state, for example,Texas masters license reciprocates with Louisiana and North Carolina. The journeyman's license reciprocates with Arkansas, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Wyoming.

No need to re-test in each state, typically you just need to pass the test (no grandfathering) and hold the license for a year before reciprocation.

New Jersey doesn't reciprocate with anyone btw.

West Virginia on the other hand does.
