The Engineer in Training (EIT) exam is the first step in acquiring your Professional Engineer (PE) License. Once you pass the Engineer in Training exam and gain the designation of EIT, it is not required to take any further tests to maintain the designation. You may though need to pay a fee to renew the certification every given period of time as defined by your specific State Board of Engineers.
At the time of passing, you enter a period in which you work under the supervision of a Registered Professional Engineer to gain experience. Once this experience is gained, typically 4 years, you will need to apply for and take the Professional Engineer exam, which is also administered by NCEES. When you take and pass the Professional Engineer Exam you become a PE and are no longer referred to as an EIT.
