License Renewal 

PE renewal window is OPENAll Delaware PEs need to renew their license by June 30, 2020. Since DAPE's staff is working remotely, we recommend the following:

1) Renew as soon as possible.

2) Pay online (rather than by check) to avoid delays in the renewal process.

DAPE's CPC Guidelines stipulate that licensees experiencing physical disability, illness, or other extenuating circumstances may apply for an exemption or an extension of time to obtain the credits, subject to the review and approval of the Council. Supporting documentation must be furnished to the Council. 

You may request a 60-day extension to meet CPC requirements if COVID-19 restrictions have impacted planned training. Licensees must request this extension by emailing, and still need to renew online by June 30, 2020 to remain on active roster (you will be able to indicate that you have received an extension during the renewal process). Anyone that requests this extension will be required to send a PDH log form and supporting documentation to demonstrate that you have met your CPC requirements by August 31, 2020.

In keeping with Governor Carney's latest State of Emergency declaration, DAPE Staff is trying to work remotely as much as possible. The best way to contact us is via email: If you have trouble uploading documents related to an application or renewal, please send the documents to We will not be available to sign for deliveries, so US mail is recommended for payments by check and documents such as embossed seal impressions.

Licensure Board

To find out about licensure requirements and dates and locations of licensure exams, contact your state licensure board.

In Delaware the Engineering profession is "self regulating." "The Delaware Association of Professional Engineers" (DAPE) is established by law and consists of all the professional engineers licensed in Delaware. These "members" are selected by voting 12 of the 15 members of the "Council" of the DAPE with the remaining 3 being public members appointed by the Governor. The "Council" performs the duties of "The Board of Licensing for Engineers" in other states. Its Objectives are best described by Section 2804 of the Law.
