Current through Rules and Regulations filed through April 4, 2022

In evaluating experience offered as qualifying experience under O.C.G.A. 43-15-8, 43-15-9, and 43-15-10, the Board will take into consideration the following six (6) factors:

(a) Prior Education. The Board will take into consideration the applicant's education at the time the pertinent experience was acquired with the basic view that prior education determines the value of the experience.
(b) Kind of Experience. The experience should involve the application of special knowledge of the mathematical, physical, and engineering sciences; the preparation of engineering data; the organization and implementation of testing procedures or methodologies for the collection of engineering data; the preparation of engineering data; the interpretation of engineering data; and the involvement in engineering during construction by the design engineer to verify his/her engineering design.
(c) Quality. The experience should, by progression in difficulty and magnitude, demonstrate that the applicant has acquired ability to design and apply engineering principles and that his/her judgment may be trusted on projects involving public health and safety.
(d) Scope. The experience should demonstrate sufficient breadth and scope within the field selected rather than narrowly focused technical skill within the field.
(e) Progression. The record of work experience should indicate progression from initial work of simple character to recent work of greater difficulty, complexity and responsibility.
(f) Capacity and Viewpoint. The record of experience should indicate that the applicant has attained to a considerable degree those attributes of clear thinking and analysis essential to competence.
