Outreach Events & Scheduling

Due to an abundance of caution related to the COVID-19 / Coronavirus situation, TBPELS has decided not to conduct any face-to-face meetings until further notice. We'll continually monitor the situation and make determinations for future events. Webinars and video conferences are being held. Schedule your event by clicking on the blue button below.

Presentations

TBPELS gives outreach presentations as available and at no charge, all over the state to Professional Engineers, Professional Land Surveyors, associations, societies, and companies. The Board can also provide outreach via webinar (aside from the quarterly scheduled webinars). Events with fewer than 25 participants will be scheduled as an online webinar or video conference.

Available Presentations

Ethics:

A general refresher for the practice of engineering, surveying and ethics in the state of Texas. It includes information on board actions, legislative changes, and other issues that affect the profession. Attendance (in person or through webinar) meets the annual continuing education requirement for ethics training.

Licensing:

Covers the license application process, information about requirements, and applicant resources. Rule and legislative changes that may affect applicants are also addressed.

Student/Potential Applicants:

Covers the benefits of licensure, the board, Texas Law and Rules, the exams, and licensing requirements.

Webinars

We also provide free webinars throughout the year. Each one is limited to 1,000 attendees. Registration is posted one month in advance of each online event. Refer to our webinar page for future events and further information.
