All applicants must meet the Basic Requirement. In addition, applicants must demonstrate possession of one year of specialized experience as described below.
POSITIVE EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS: This position has a Positive Education Requirement. In order to verify that you meet the positive education qualifications for this position, you must submit a complete copy of your transcripts or an itemized list of college courses which includes equivalent information from the transcript (University Name, Type of Degree earned, Major, year degree received, and semester/quarter) UNLESS you are currently registration as a Professional Engineer and you document your Professional Registration. Failure to submit this information will result in an ineligible rating. You must submit your transcripts or list of college courses through the "Application Manger" or by fax. This is the only method in which transcripts can be submitted. Failure to provide this information will result in an ineligible rating. (Faxing instructions can be found under the "How to Apply" section.)
A. Degree: professional engineering. To be acceptable, the curriculum must: (1) be in a school of engineering with at least one curriculum accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) as a professional engineering curriculum; or (2) include differential and integral calculus and courses (more advanced than first-year physics and chemistry) in five of the following seven areas of engineering science or physics: (a) statics, dynamics; (b) strength of materials (stress-strain relationships); (c) fluid mechanics, hydraulics; (d) thermodynamics; (e) electrical fields and circuits; (f) nature and properties of materials (relating particle and aggregate structure to properties); and (g) any other comparable area of fundamental engineering science or physics, such as optics, heat transfer, soil mechanics, or electronics.
B. Combination of education and experience--college-level education, training, and/or technical experience that furnished (1) a thorough knowledge of the physical and mathematical sciences underlying professional engineering, and (2) a good understanding, both theoretical and practical, of the engineering sciences and techniques and their applications to one of the branches of engineering. The adequacy of such background must be demonstrated by one of the following:
1. Professional registration--Current registration as a professional engineer by any State, the District of Columbia, Guam, or Puerto Rico. Absent other means of qualifying under this standard, those applicants who achieved such registration by means other than written test (e.g., State grandfather or eminence provisions) are eligible only for positions that are within or closely related to the specialty field of their registration. For example, an applicant who attains registration through a State Board's eminence provision as a manufacturing engineer typically would be rated eligible only for manufacturing engineering positions.
2. Written Test- Evidence of having successfully passed the Engineer-in-Training (EIT) examination, or the written test required for professional registration, which is administered by the Boards of Engineering Examiners in the various States, the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico. Applicants who have passed the EIT examination and have completed all the requirements for either (a) a bachelor's degree in engineering technology (BET) from an accredited college of university that included 60 semester hours of courses in the physical, mathematical, and engineering sciences, or (b) a BET from a program accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) may be rated eligible for certain engineering positions at GS-5. Eligibility is limited to positions that are within or closely related to the specialty field of the engineering technology program. Applicants for positions that involve highly technical research, development, or similar functions requiring an advanced level of competence in basic science must meet the basic requirements in paragraph A. Because of the diversity in kind and quality of BET programs, graduates of other BET programs are required to complete at least 1 year of additional education or highly technical work experience of such nature as to provide reasonable assurance of the possession of the knowledge, skills, and abilities required for professional engineering competence. The adequacy of this background must be demonstrated by passing the EIT examination.
3. Specified academic courses--Successful completion of at least 60 semester hours of courses in the physical, mathematical, and engineering sciences and in engineering that included the courses specified in the basic requirements. The courses must be fully acceptable toward meeting the requirements of a professional engineering curriculum as described in paragraph A.
4. Related curriculum--Successful completion of a curriculum leading to a bachelor's degree in engineering technology or in an appropriate professional field, e.g., physics, chemistry, architecture, computer science, mathematics, hydrology, or geology, may be accepted in lieu of a degree in engineering, provided the applicant has had at least 1 year of professional engineering experience acquired under professional engineering supervision and guidance. Ordinarily there should be either an established plan of intensive training to develop professional engineering competence, or several years of prior professional engineering-type experience, e.g., in interdisciplinary positions. (The above examples of related curricula are not all-inclusive.) NOTE: Applicant's must indicate on their application how he/she acquired experience under professional engineering supervision and guidance. Without this information, you will be considered ineligible to meet this related curriculum.
SPECIALIZED EXPERIENCE: Applicants must have one or more years of progressively related experience. Creditable specialized experience includes professional engineering experience in developing and executing a region wide energy management program; provide leadership to mobilized contract and/or government resources to implement project, process and programs to attain Energy and Water efficiency goals and monitors the progress toward these goals. NOTE: In order to credit your experience, pls. document the month/year of your employment date(s).
DEFENSE ACQUISITION WORKFORCE IMPROVEMENT ACT (DAWIA) REQUIREMENT: The selectee must complete the requirements of the Career Development Program for Acquisition personnel in accordance with DOD Manual 5000.52M for the FACILITIES ENGINEERING (FE) Career Field, Certification Level II within two years of appointment. Requirements can be found at: http://www.dau.mil/catalog/default.aspx in Appendix B.
FOREIGN EDUCATION: Education completed in foreign colleges or universities may be used to meet the qualification requirements if the applicant can provide documentation indicating that the foreign education is comparable to that received in an accredited educational institution in the United States. It is the responsibility of the applicant to provide such evidence when applying.
- Selectee may be required to successfully complete a probationary period.
- A COMPLETE COPY OF YOUR TRANSCRIPT/ITEMIZED LIST OF COURSE WORK IS REQUIRED, UNLESS you are currently registration as a Professional Engineer and you document your Professional Registration.
This position requires a valid States Driver license. A copy of your valid State's Drivers License will be required prior to employment. Without this license you will be rated ineligible and removed from consideration.
