Staton Earns MLSE Designation

Garver congratulates Project Manager Blake Staton, who serves on Garver’s Bridge Team in the Huntsville, Alabama office, for earning the NCEES Model Law designation of Structural Engineer (MLSE). This designation indicates that Blake meets NCEES’s Model Law requirements in education, experience, and examination in the field of structural engineering. Obtaining this designation requires a structurally focused graduate education, broad structural engineering work history, and a rigorous 16 hours of NCEES structural examination.

"While the SE designation is not required to practice structural engineering in many states, it does distinguish Garver in the bridge design field," Bridge Team Leader John Ruddell said. "Garver has an accomplished history of complex bridge design expertise, and people like Blake are continuing this proud tradition."

“Obtaining SE licensure has been a goal of mine since I started my engineering career," Blake said. "It serves as another reassurance to our clients that Garver has the qualifications and capabilities to tackle their most complex projects."
