International Mobility - geoscientists

There are currently no Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRAs) for geoscientists.

Application process 

Step 1 - Apply for and become registered as a geoscientist-in-training.

Even though you may already be registered as a professional geoscientist elsewhere, it is simply part of the APEGS process to have all applicants become a geoscientist-in-training first. Being registered as a geoscientist-in-training means that you have met the academic requirements for registration as a professional geoscientist. 

Your geoscientist-in-training application instructions can be found here.

Step 2 - Experience Assessment

APEGS uses a competency-based assessment process for work experience. You can find the details here.

Step 3 - Apply for and pass the Professional Practice Exam (PPE)

Details on the PPE can be found here.

Step 4 - Apply as a professional geoscientist

Details can be found here
