Canadian Engineering Graduates
Member-in-training Application Process

If you do not have a degree in engineering accredited by the CEAB, you must follow the same process as international engineering graduates. If you have experience in engineering but do not have a four-year bachelor education in engineering, then you may be eligible for Engineering Licensee.

The following documents are required for this process:
- Member-in-training application and fee ($210)

Step 1: Submit Application
You may apply for engineer-in-training online using a credit card. This is the quickest and preferred way to apply. Choose application type "Engineer-in-training - Cdn grad".
Member-in-Training paper application form
You may apply using the printed application form only if a company is paying the application fee by cheque or the company who is paying the application fee does not pay GST (such as Government of Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan Watershed Authority). Do not submit the paper application form if you apply on-line.
Step 2: Submit Required Documents to APEGS
The required documents are: a) direct confirmation of graduation, and; b) proof of ID as follows:
2a) Direct Confirmation of Graduation
How do I provide Direct Confirmation of Graduation?
Option 1: Send the Confirmation of Graduation form to the institution where you received your bachelor degree. You complete the top two boxes of the form and send it to the university where you completed your bachelor degree. The university will then complete the bottom box and send it directly to APEGS as per the instructions on the form.
Option 2: Order original transcripts from the institution where you received your bachelor degree to be sent directly to APEGS. The transcript must show the degree awarded.
Graduates of the University of Saskatchewan can request an official confirmation of their degree online (through PAWS) at no charge:
Log into PAWS (requires U of S Network Services ID (NSID) and password).If you don’t have an ID and password, request a NSID and password from Alumni Relations.
Click on the Academics tab. In the Transcripts and Degree Confirmation channel click on Degree Confirmation Letter. Request that the confirmation be sent directly to APEGS by entering this into the email address recipient box: email@example.com. NOTE: do not enter your own email address because APEGS will only accept the confirmation email forwarded directly through PAWS (it cannot be forwarded from your personal email address).
What if the convocation ceremony has not occured yet?
If the convocation ceremony has not occurred yet and the Registrar's Office cannot yet issue a confirmation of graduation, then have the Faculty of Engineering or College of Engineering send a letter directly to the APEGS office indicating that you have completed all the requirements for the degree and you have been recommended for convocation. Your name, degree awarded, discipline, and date of convocation ceremony need to be on the letter. Alternatively, wait until after the convocation ceremony to apply with APEGS so that the direct confirmation of graduation can be issued the usual way, normally through the University's Registrar's office.
