Important: Unlawful Professional Designation Reminder

The Kansas State Board of Technical Professions would like to remind everyone that it is not appropriate to utilize a professional designation until licensure. K.S.A. 74-7029 provides that it is unlawful "through the use of some other title to imply a person is an architect, landscape architect, professional engineer, professional geologist or professional surveyor, or that such person is licensed to practice a technical profession." The statue goes on to further state that it is unlawful to "practice or offer to practice or hold one's self out as entitled to practice any technical profession unless the person is licensed as provided in K.S.A. 74-7001 et seq., and amendments thereto ... " Please click here to view the statue in its entirety.
