FE/EIT Exam location - SFO Bay Area, April 2003?

FE/EIT Exam location - SFO Bay Area, April 2003?

FE/EIT Exam location - SFO Bay Area, April 2003?

(OP)
Hi,

I passed my FE/EIT exam in the San Francisco Bay Area in April 2003. I’ve been trying to remember where the test center location was exactly. At the time, I was new to and not familiar with the Bay Area. Most likely it was somewhere in the East Bay. Anybody here who could help me figure out the FE/EIT test center location, SF Bay Area, 04/2003?

Please note that I’ve contacted the CA State Board and the NCEES with the same question, and they don't have that information!?!?

Thanks!

Not sure I understand why you would need to know where you took the exam, beyond what state you were in. That's all that would matter in locating documentation that you took the test, which I assume is what you're looking for.

Yeah, do you need an alibi or something?

RE: FE/EIT Exam location - SFO Bay Area, April 2003?

Did you drop your lucky pencil there?

Glad that you guys are having fun with my question. The reason for my question is personal and it won't be disclosed but the lucky pencil was very close :)

RE: FE/EIT Exam location - SFO Bay Area, April 2003?

Have you tried contacting SEAONC?

RE: FE/EIT Exam location - SFO Bay Area, April 2003?

(OP)
Will do. Thanks!

RE: FE/EIT Exam location - SFO Bay Area, April 2003?

Not sure what the OP's personal reason is, but filling out an out of state comity application a few months ago I had to list the address of my testing center. Thought it was strange.

My FE exam was in the College of Engineering building at the university where I graduated, but I'd be in trouble if I had to list the location where I sat for the PE. It was a room in an office building rented out for that purpose. I know the general area, but even if I went there, I'm not sure I'd recognize it, if it's even still there.

I took the FE exam in 1979 at a junior high school that is about 4 miles from my university.

A year after I graduated and got a job in my home town, I was transferred to a city about 230 miles away. Fortunately, when I took the Civil PE exam (1983), one of the few sites the State of California used that year was a middle school that was just over a mile from where I lived then. Being so close enabled me to go home for lunch and spend time with my wife and infant daughter.

I know the building name, but only telling if you tell us the reason...

Please contact me at anbelivbl@yahoo.com. Thanks!

RE: FE/EIT Exam location - SFO Bay Area, April 2003?

Ah, come on. We're all curious as to why this is so important, and plus, you're just a screen name to us, so even it we wanted to point and laugh, we can't. We wouldn't anyway; we're an understanding group. No need to be embarrassed.

RE: FE/EIT Exam location - SFO Bay Area, April 2003?

I am presuming you no longer have the paperwork associated with that event. I've been fortunate and able to save everything for the FE and PE exam.

It's also possible that they did not include all the info you are needing.

Good luck finding the answer. We all hope you do. We are also all painfully curious for the reason

RE: FE/EIT Exam location - SFO Bay Area, April 2003?

I will only provide it once you tell us. As Bridgesmith said, we are an understanding group

You need to prove you know the address first. Which city we are talking about?

RE: FE/EIT Exam location - SFO Bay Area, April 2003?

I am joking pal, only trying to get you to tell us.

(genuinely sorry if i got your hopes up!)

Can't say I'm surprised. I had to get my state board to send NCEES test scores of mine (including the SE tests) when getting a record done. And I asked NCEES (incredulously): "are you trying to tell me you don't have that info internally? It's a NCEES given test!" And the answer was that they didn't.

Beats all you never saw. (To steal a line from The Dukes of Hazard. smile)

RE: FE/EIT Exam location - SFO Bay Area, April 2003?

The two locations I am aware of in the Bay Area are the San Mateo County Event Center and the Alameda County Fairgrounds.

If nobody has this information, then nobody can really verify whether or not what you state is correct.

Quite an unusual situation. The exam at that time was developed by NCEES but administered by the licensing board. Here is the reply from the CA Board:

"Hello XX,

Thank you for your email.

Our records confirmed your successful examination in April 2003. However, we do not maintain records of past examination locations. Therefore, we can only confirm when examinations are taken and the results of those examinations."



I passed my PE exam at San Mateo Event Center so I know for sure that is not the place. I also took a look at the Alameda County Fairgrounds photos and cannot confirm it. Looks more like it was at Exposition Hall @ Santa Clara Fairgrounds? Is there anything with a similar inside look to that building at Alameda Fairgrounds?

Thanks!
