FAQs on licence waiver:

What is a licence waiver and how does it work?

I am employed but not in an engineering or geoscience job. Why can't I apply for a waiver?

What are the reasons I would apply for a licence waiver and maintain my membership?

Am I still permitted to use the protected titles if I have a licence waiver?

I have a licence waiver, how do I reinstate my licence if need be?

What is a licence waiver and how does it work?

Click here and scroll to "Licence Waiver".

I am employed but not in an engineering or geoscience job.  Why can't I apply for a waiver? 

Regulatory Bylaw 13(2) states that "a member who is retired or is not working in Saskatchewan may apply to Council waive the requirements to obtain a licence while the member is retired or not working in Saskatchewan".  The interpretation of "not working" includes any job, including non-engineering and geoscience jobs. 

The opportunity for a waiver is directed specifically to members who are not employed in Saskatchewan.

What are the reasons why I would get a licence waiver and maintain my membership?


There are several reasons:

1) All it takes is a phone call to reinstate your licence if you maintain your membership. You would not have to pay the application fee. Application fees are either $200 or $300 plus GST depending on the application type. The membership fee is only $85 plus GST for the year.

2) If you are not registered in any other equivalent Association in Canada, any coverage you have under the National Secondary Professional Liability Insurance Program or the Manulife life-insurance program sponsored by Engineers Canada will NOT be in force after you resign. Keeping your membership active would maintain your coverage.

3) It is a low cost option for those who are retired but not yet eligible for life membership to maintain their connection to the Association and continue to receive the benefits of membership, including email notices and The Professional Edge.

4) Maintaining your membership ensures you receive a dues notice for the subsequent year. This would serve as a reminder to renew for potential upcoming projects.

Am I still permitted to use the protected titles if I have a licence waiver?


(from section 26 of The Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act, the protected titles are as follows: Professional Engineer, Engineer, Consulting Engineer, P.Eng., Professional Geoscientist, Geoscientist, Consulting Geoscientist, P.Geo.)

If you have a licence waiver, you are permitted to use one of the protected titles but only within Saskatchewan’s borders. You are not licensed to practice professional engineering or professional geoscience in Saskatchewan, nor for projects or properties located elsewhere in Canada unless you are appropriately licenced in the jurisdiction(s) where the projects or properties are located. Note that protected titles may differ in other jurisdictions and you should inform yourself.

Also note that there should be no need to use a protected title in Saskatchewan if you do not reside in Saskatchewan and you have no projects here (which is the reason you qualified for a licence waiver in the first place). If you are not sure if you qualify for licence waiver, contact Shawna Argue, Director of Registration, by phone (local 306-525-9547, toll free North America 1-800-500-9547) or email apegs@apegs.ca

I have a licence waiver, how do I reinstate my licence if need be?


If you are granted a licence waiver and sometime later during the year you return to work or obtain engineering or geoscience work on projects or properties located in Saskatchewan, then you shall advise APEGS and pay the appropriate, prorated licence fee.

Call the APEGS office or email us at apegs@apegs.ca and we will create the appropriate annual dues notice. You can pay it in one of three ways: by credit card in APEGS Central (your online profile), credit card number provided over the phone, mail a cheque. Your licence is not reinstated until payment is received.

FAQs pertaining to a variety of application types:


How do I use the on-line-application?
 

You can access the on-line application system from the link provided on the appropriate page under Apply. To get started, go to Start Application.

IMPORTANT: The person applying for registration is the person who must complete the on-line application. The applicant is responsible for ensuring that all the information entered is correct. The statements made in any application to APEGS must be true and correct. Any false or misleading statement on an application or relating to any document in support of this application, including concealment of any material fact, may be found to be contrary to the APEGS Good Character Guideline  and lead to denial or revocation of your registration.

You must use a credit card (Visa, MasterCard or AMEX) to apply online. Check the application fee table for the current processing fees. If you apply online, you must pay the GST. If your employer does not pay GST and they will be reimbursing you for the application fee, APEGS cannot reverse the GST payment. Examples of employers who do not pay GST on processing fees: Government of Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan Watershed Authority. 

Please ensure that the domain name “apegs.ca” is not blocked. If you don’t receive any emails from APEGS as you go through the on-line application, check your junk email folder or call the APEGS office.

Before starting your application, read the applicable application instructions on the APEGS website under Apply. Also, to sign the declarations at the end of the on-line application, you must review and be familiar with the Act and Bylaws (The Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act) of Saskatchewan. Click here to view the APEGS Privacy Policy.  

 

Do I have to apply on-line? 

You must apply on-line unless a company is paying your 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). There is a paper form available on each applicable web page depending on the application type. 

We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express in the on-line application system. If you cannot pay by credit card, then you must complete the appropriate paper application form. Scan and email or fax or mail the completed paper application to the APEGS office (apegs@apegs.ca). You may pay for paper applications by credit card, cheque, cash or debit (cash or debit in person at the APEGS office only). 

Once you have submitted your application on-line and APEGS staff has accepted the application in our system, you will receive an automatic email from APEGS with your permanent User ID for APEGS Central (the new online profile). To access APEGS Central click Login on the top right corner of any page on this website. 

What if I don’t have a credit card to pay on-line? 

If you don’t have a credit card then you must complete the paper application form which is available for you to print from the appropriate web page, depending on the application type. Paper applications can be paid by cheque, credit card, cash or debit.  If you are paying by cheque, send your cheque and paper application form by mail or drop them off at the APEGS office during regular office hours. If you are paying by cash or debit card, bring your completed paper application with you to the APEGS office and make your payment in person. 

How long will my application take?

On the Application Fees and Timelines page there is both a table of fees AND the processing timelines. 

What if my bachelor level education is not in engineering or geoscience?

If your bachelor level education is not in either of these fields, then you may not be qualified to apply for a licence. However, if your bachelor degree is in a related field and you have a graduate degree in engineering or geoscience you might meet the academic requirements for member-in-training. You must follow the same process as international graduates, because we require a full academic assessment, even if your bachelor level education is from within Canada.

Click here for international engineering graduate assessment information.
Click here for international geoscience graduate assessment information.

If you do not think you can meet the academic requirements for member-in-training, but you have a significant amount of engineering or geoscience work experience then you may qualify as a engineering licensee or geoscience licensee. The Engineering Licensee and Geoscience Licensee page contains a table that shows how much work experience would be required for your level of education.

What is the difference between membership and licensure?

APEGS annual dues contain two components: a membership fee and a licence fee. If you are a practicing engineering or geoscientist on projects or properties located in Saskatchewan you must pay both fees. If you are not practicing for a certain period of time, you can have your license fee waived in certain situations, but maintain your membership in APEGS. Go to the Annual Fees, Licence Waiver web page to find out if you qualify. Obtaining a licence waiver (and maintaining your membership) allows you to reinstate your licensee at any time without having to re-apply. You must reinstate your license if you start practicing again by calling the APEGS office and paying the prorated licence fee for the remainder of the calendar year.

Retaining your membership at a cost of $85 per year (plus GST) is a quick and easy option to have your licence available to be reinstated by a phone call and credit card number. Retaining your membership also allows you to vote in Council elections and at Annual Meetings and to receive communications from APEGS.

If you resign your membership or your membership lapses because you have not paid your annual fees, then you might have to re-apply to start practicing again depending on how long it has been since your membership ceased (the application fee is $300 plus GST for professional members and $200 plus GST for members-in-training). See the Reinstatement page for details on when you need to re-apply and what is involved.

How can I pay my application fees?

If you apply online you must pay by credit card. We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express. If you are paying with cash or debit you must visit the APEGS office in person. You may send a cheque or money order by mail along with a paper application (if it's not possible to apply and pay online for some reason). The APEGS address is 300 - 4581 Parliament Avenue, Regina, SK S4W 0G3.


How can I pay my annual fees?

Once your application is approved, you have six weeks to pay annual membership and licence fees. During this six-week time period, you are entitled to use the designation(s) for which you were approved. It is best to pay on-line in APEGS Central by selecting "Invoices". Alternatively, you can pay by cheque, money order, debit or cash (debit or cash in person at the office).  Note that your APEGS Central account is not created until you sign up. The instructions can be found under the applicable web page under "Apply" depending on your application type. 

How do I get a waiver of my licence fee?

To get a waiver of your licence fee you must qualify and make a request in writing using the Licence Waiver application form. Go to the Annual Fees, Licence Waiver web page to find details.

Can I get a waiver of my membership fee?

APEGS does not waive membership fees. If you have not paid by the deadline provided in your approval letter or annual renewal notice, and your membership lapses, or you resign your membership, then you might have to re-apply depending on how long it has been since your membership lapsed. See details on the Reinstatement page.

How do I reinstate my licence?

If you obtain engineering or geoscience work on projects or properties located in Saskatchewan, you must reinstate your licence if you have received a licence waiver for the year. To reinstate your license after it has been waived, call the APEGS office at 306-525-9547 (in Regina) or toll free 1-800-500-9547 (anywhere in North America). We will prorate your licence fee for the remainder of the year and you must pay the licence fee before you can start practicing engineering or geoscience on projects or properties located in Saskatchewan. 

Note that it is not possible to get a licence waiver a second time in the same calendar year.

Also note that you are not eligible for a licence waiver if you are residing in Saskatchewan and you are working at any job, including non-engineering and non-geoscience jobs.

FAQs pertaining to mobility applications:


What is the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT)?

The Agreement on Internal Trade stipulates that professionals can be registered in equivalent Association(s) in Canada without further assessment. APEGS calls these types of applications "Inter-Association Mobility". 

For full detail on the Agreement on Internal Trade, refer to the Engineers Canada web site: http://www.engineerscanada.ca/e/pr_mobility_2.cfm
If the link does not work, look under Programs, Mobility, National Mobility on the Engineers Canada Web site.

Information about mobility applications to APEGS can be found under the Inter-Association Mobility web page. 

I am registered as a Provisional Licensee in another Association in Canada. What registration category do I qualify for with APEGS?

APEGS does not have a "provisional licensee" registration category. In other Associations, depending on the Association, it signifies that the person has met all of the requirements for professional registration except for either the one year of Canadian work experience or the language requirement. The mobility application type you are eligible for with APEGS is either engineer-in-training or geoscientist-in-training.

If you have questions or to discuss the best route for your situation contact Shawna Argue, Director of Registration 
sargue@apegs.ca or call her at the APEGS office. 

 


FAQs pertaining to member-in-training applications:


If I already have lots of experience, why do I have to apply as a member-in-training?
 

APEGS mandates this process. All applicants, if they have not previously been registered as a professional engineer or professional geoscientist in any province or territory of Canada, regardless of their number of years of experience, must apply as an engineer-in-training or geoscientist-in-training before they can become a professional engineer.

If you are already registered as an engineer-in-training or geoscientist-in-training in another province or territory of Canada, and you have completed the academic requirements for registration, you can find your application instructions under Inter-Association Mobility – member-in-training application

When can I start calling myself an “Engineer-in-Training” or “Geoscientist-in-Training”? 

You may start using these titles after you have received notice either through your approval letter or in APEGS Central (the new online profile) stating that your application for member-in-training has been approved (note that, within six weeks of approval, you have to pay the annual fees, details are included with the approval letter). Once you have become registered as a member-in-training with APEGS, you have the right to use the title "Engineer-in-Training" or “Geoscientist-in-Training” for engineering or geoscience work (as applicable) pertaining to projects or properties located in Saskatchewan*. On business cards, in engineering/geoscience work, on job applications and in all correspondence the title must be written out in full because the acronyms "EIT" and “GIT” are not designated titles under The Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act or Bylaws nor are they publicly recognized acronyms. You may use any other title containing the word "Engineer" or “Geoscientist” as long as you are also identifying yourself as an Engineer-in-Training or Geoscientist-in-Training, as applicable. It must be clear to the public that you are not a professional engineer or professional geoscientist.

For example, the following is acceptable: 

Jane Smith, Engineer-in-Training
Project Engineer 

John Smith, Geoscientist-in-Training
Exploration Geoscientist 

*The titles Engineer-in-Training and Geoscientist-in-Training can only be used in the province(s) where you are registered as such and proper use of title varies by province. You must contact the specific Association(s) to determine the acceptable use of titles in that jurisdiction. 

If you have any questions on the use of titles, contact Chris Wimmer, P.Eng., Director of Professional Standards at 1-800-500-9547 (anywhere in North America) or 306-525-9547 (in Regina) or by email cwimmer@apegs.ca.

What are the Academic Requirements for a member-in-training?

For an engineer-in-training, a bachelor level university program of study in engineering that is recognized by Council is required. If you have a Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) accredited degree, then you meet the academic requirement. If you do not have a CEAB-accredited engineering degree then we require an APEGS academic assessment to determine if your education has sufficient breadth and depth, as set out in the Canadian Engineering Qualification Board (CEQB) syllabi.

For a geoscientist-in-training, a four-year bachelor level university education in geoscience that is recognized by Council is required. For the Council to recognize your degree, it must meet the Canadian standard, which has been set out by Geoscientists Canada. The document “Geoscience Knowledge and Experience Requirements for Professional Registration in Canada” (or the GKE) contains the details of this standard. See the International Geoscience Graduates web page for details. 

 


FAQs pertaining to international graduate (member-in-training) applications:


Do I have to have my academic documents sent directly from my university?
 

If you applied on or after April 1, 2015 you must have a credential assessment by World Education Services (WES). APEGS will get copies of the authenticated academic documents directly from WES. If you applied before April 1, 2015 then original or notarized/certified copies of academic documents have to be sent directly from the university to APEGS. 

What is direct confirmation of graduation and degree and why is it required? 

If you applied on or after April 1, 2015 then you must provide APEGS with a credential assessment by World Education Services (WES). The WES assessment provides APEGS with direct confirmation of graduation and degree as well as transcript details. If you applied prior to April 1, 2015 then APEGS cannot approve you application as a member-in-training unless your university has confirmed directly with APEGS that you obtained the degree you claim, and when you obtained it. This process is called "direct confirmation of graduation and degree". We require this confirmation because academic documents can be forged. Direct confirmation from the university provides us with confidence that an applicant’s documents are authentic.  

How should I send my academic documents to APEGS? 

All applicants who applied on or after April 1, 2015 are required to have an assessment done by WES (World Education Services) with some exceptions as listed on the International Engineering Graduates page. Academic documents are provided directly to APEGS from WES as part of their services.   

For those people who do not need a WES assessment completed, if you are sending notarized or certified copies of your academic documents then use regular mail. If you are sending original academic documents, send them by registered mail. All original documents submitted will be returned by registered mail if you include a note telling us that you want us to return the documents. Alternatively, if you bring originals to the APEGS office during regular business hours, you may leave them with us and we will contact you when you can pick them up.  If you are coming in person, we strongly recommended that you make an appointment with the appropriate APEGS staff person if you wish to speak to someone. 

 

What do I have to do to get copies of my documents notarized/certified? 

For those people who do not need a WES assessment completed:

Notarizing documents: You may submit a copy of original documents notarized as being a true copy of the original by a Notary Public. The Notary Public must do the following: apply their seal, sign, date, and include the text "Certified true copy of the original document" on EACH page of the documents. 

Certifying documents: You may submit a copy of original documents verified as being a true copy of the original by a professional engineer or professional geoscientist registered in Canada. The engineer or geoscientist must do the following: apply their professional seal, sign, date, and include the text "Certified true copy of the original document" on EACH page of the documents. 

When is an academic assessment not required? 

For engineer-in-training applicants, the only situations where the academic assessment form, fee and self-assessment are NOT required for international graduates are: 

  • You have a bachelor degree accredited under a Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA).  Such agreements exist with the accreditation bodies in these countries**: United States, United Kingdom, France, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Chinese Tapei, Hong Kong China, Korea, Malaysia, Russia, Singapore, Turkey and India. See the International Mobility page for important details.
  • You have a bachelor level university program of study in engineering (bachelor degree or equivalent) and a PE designation in the United States.
  • You are a faculty member at the University of Regina or University of Saskatchewan, and you have a bachelor level university program of study in engineering (bachelor degree or equivalent) and a PhD (any discipline).
  • Your education is assessed by WES as an equivalent level to a 4 year bachelor degree in Canada and is in engineering (staff will check to make sure) and you have one of the following: 
    • a Masters and/or PhD in engineering from Canada in the same or closely related discipline as your bachelor degree; OR
    • a Masters and/or PhD in engineering from an institution where there are MRA-accredited bachelor degrees (outside Canada) in the same or closely related discipline as your bachelor degree.
  • We have previously assessed an applicant who completed the same bachelor program as you have and they have successfully passed confirmatory exams. This is called the Master List check. After we have received your application, we will inform you if this applies to you. 

** IMPORTANT: Not all degrees from these countries are accredited. It depends on the specific details of the agreement. APEGS will contact you if this applies to you. 

For geoscientist-in-training applicants, the only situation where the academic assessment form, fee and self-assessment are NOT required for international graduates is if you have a four-year bachelor level program of study in geoscience that is acceptable to Council, a Ph.D. (any discipline) and you are a faculty member in geoscience at a Saskatchewan university.

How long will it take to get the results of my academic assessment? 

Application processing time depends on your particular situation. International engineering graduates who do not require the detailed academic assessment can expect a shorter processing time (approximately two months). Applications that require the detailed academic assessment generally take a minimum eight months, but may take up to a year. Depending on the outcome of the assessment, to fully meet the academic requirement may take considerably longer. Any further academic preparation required as a result of the academic assessment will extend the time period required to become qualified for registration as a member-in-training. 

What are the Engineers Canada Syllabus descriptions? 

The Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board (CEQB) of Engineers Canada develops and maintains a content description for a generalized Canadian engineering program in many of the disciplines commonly offered in Canada. These are called syllabus descriptions. Each discipline contains two syllabi, one called Basics Studies, which is common to all disciplines, and another which is specific to the discipline e.g., Civil Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering. The CEQB Syllabi page contains links to all the syllabi. 

How does the APEGS application process work for international engineering graduates? 

Click here for a EIT flowchart which provides an overview of the application process. It will help you understand the application process. There may be technical exams or courses assigned, depending on the results of the academic assessment. 

Unless you meet the Registrar's Acceptance List, at a minimum, you will be assigned confirmatory exams. These exams are comprised of two compulsory subjects and one elective from the appropriate discipline specific syllabus (syllabus descriptions). APEGS will consider all your information to determine if the exams can be waived (Looking to Waive policy). Additional exams/courses, over and above the confirmatory exams, may be required if deficiencies are found in your program of study. 

You application will be denied if there are more than six deficiencies identified in your academic studies and it is deemed that you require further education, however, a roadmap to complete the deficiencies is provided, if applicable. 

What does “official” program syllabus mean?

“Official” course descriptions means that the description is published by the institution. There are a number of ways these can be published:

  • on-line
  • in a booklet (you may make a copy as long as you include the publication details)
  • a special document/letter issued by the university
More information is provided in Official Program Syllabi 

 


FAQs pertaining to professional member applications (for existing APEGS members-in-training):


What are the requirements for references on the professional member application?

For professional member applications, you must provide the names of the three people registered as either a professional engineer or professional geoscientist in Canada or the USA. We accept references from professional engineers registered in the United States, however at least one of your references must be from a professional engineer or professional geoscientist registered in Canada. For special circumstances, contact Shawna Argue, Director of Registration.

 


FAQs pertaining to work experience reporting (for members-in-training):

Where can I find the experience report submission cut-off dates?

They are located here, under Apply, Work Experience Reporting.

How do I submit completed experience reports to APEGS?

For the paper-based system, click here and scroll down to "How do I submit completed experience reports to APEGS?" (under Apply, Work Experience Reporting). The new online Compentency-Based Assessment system for engineers-in-training is online only. 

I'm not being directly supervised by a professional engineer, professional geoscientist, engineering licensee or geoscience licensee - What do I do?

This applies only to the paper-based experience reporting system. See Section 4 of Experience Guideline 1 explains what you need to do. 

For engineers-in-training, you can find Experience Guideline 1 here. (this guideline is for the paper-based system). 

For geoscientists-in-training, you can find Experience Guideline 1 here.

NOTICE: a new experience reporting system is coming into effect for engineers-in-training on January 1, 2019 called Competency-Based Assessment (CBA). See the CBA web page for more detail. 

Under the CBA system, it is possible to have experience assessed that is not supervised by a professional engineer or professional geoscientist. See the CBA information for details. 

I'm behind in submitting experience reports. Can I submit all four years in one report if I had the same job the entire time?

This answer pertains to the paper-based experience reporting system:
No, you cannot submit all four years of experience in one report. Even if you are behind in experience reporting, you still must submit reports that are of the duration outlined in Experience Guideline 1. However, you can submit all reports at the same time (although not recommended because there is no opportunity for feedback with interim submissions and you risk getting all reports denied due to insufficient content).

How many reports can I submit at once?

This answer pertains to the paper-based experience reporting system:
You can submit all reports at the same time and even out of chronological order (most recent report submitted first, for example). The order that reports are submitted does not matter. However, it is highly recommended that you submit reports on time so that there is an opportunity for feedback. It is common for members-in-training to not understand the level of detail required.  



FAQs pertaining to Engineering Licensee and Geoscience Licensee applications:


What are the academic requirements for an Engineering or Geoscience Licensee?

A table on the Engineering Licensee and Geoscience Licensee page provides the combination of academic and experience requirements for engineering licensee or geoscience licensee.

What is a “scope of practice” or “field of practice”?

These terms have the same meaning and are used interchangeably in engineering and geoscience licensee registration. They refer to the limitation of the area of practice in which an engineering licensee and geoscience licensee holders are allowed to work.

What are the requirements for references for Engineering Licensee and Geoscience Licensee applicants?

An applicant must nominate four or more referees with first-hand (supervisory or in a review capacity) knowledge of the applicant’s work. Names of referees are provided by the applicant through the online application. At least three of the referees must be a Professional Engineer or Professional Geoscientist registered in Canada or the US, or an Engineering Licensee or Geoscience Licensee (or equivalent) registered in Canada. If experience outside Canada or the United States must be verified, additional referees are required. 

How many years of experience do I need to be able to apply as a Licensee?

Please see the Eligibility Table on the Eng/Geo Licensee page.

Or - the alternative to the online application:


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: tweichel@apegs.ca.  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 occurred 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.

2b) Proof of Identification


How do I provide Proof of Identification?


Read the Proof of ID policy_Oct2012


Fill out and submit the Proof of Identification Fillable Form and attach a copy of the relevant photo ID signed by the guarantor.


All documents must be mailed to APEGS. Scanned or faxed copies are not acceptable.

Instructions to access APEGS Central if you have not used it before: click Login on the top right corner of this web page.

What is an Academic Assessment?

APEGS will compare your academic background to the Canadian academic standard for engineering. The Engineers Canada - Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board (CEQB) has set this standard. The CEQB has provided syllabus descriptions  for the most common engineering disciplines that are offered at Canadian universities. There is a basic studies syllabus that is common to all disciplines. There is also a discipline-specific syllabus. Both of these must be met. The self-assessment that you are required to fill out as part of the academic assessment is based on these syllabus descriptions. 

Possible Results of Academic Assessment

Deficiencies:

If there are any gaps in your academic background compared to the CEQB syllabi, then you will be assigned to fill these gaps or “deficiencies”. You are allowed a maximum of six deficiencies. If you have more than six deficiencies then APEGS will deny your application, however, you will be given a “roadmap” of what you must do to re-apply in the future.

There are two options for fulfilling deficiencies:

1. taking an approved course(s)

OR

2. writing challenge exams

If you feel that you have already covered some or all of these subjects in your studies, then you may request a re-assessment. You are only permitted to make one request for re-assessment. The re-assessment result is final and may result in additional deficiencies being identified. If you do not have any additional information to provide then a re-assessment is not an option and you must fulfil your deficiencies before your file can move forward. You must send an email to Questions-AcademicReview@APEGS.ca with the subject heading "re-assessment request" to get the re-assessment request form.

Once your deficiencies have been fulfilled, you will be assigned confirmatory exams.

Confirmatory Exams:

If APEGS determines that you have a engineering bachelor-level program of study that meets the content requirement as specified in the CEQB syllabi, then you will be assigned confirmatory exams. There are usually three confirmatory exams, but this is at the discretion of the Academic Review Committee (ARC). These technical exams confirm that the level of your academic training comparable to that of a four-year Canadian bachelor-level university program of study in engineering.

Waiving Confirmatory Exams:

Confirmatory exams may be waived in the following circumstances:

  • You have completed an M.Sc., M.Eng. or Ph.D. in engineering.

Note: If your education is from a country that follows the Bologna Process and your education path is the Bachelor plus Master degree of the Bologna Process, both degrees together are required to meet the academic standard for licensure in Canada. Therefore, the Master degree is not eligible for waiving confirmatory exams.

OR

  • If you have more than five years of acceptable work experience and if the Academic Review Committee (ARC) determines that this is an option for you (you would be notified in writing if that is the case), you must write up your work experience following APEGS experience reporting guidelines and have it assessed by the Experience Review Committee (ERC). If the ERC determines that your experience is acceptable, then the exam will be waived. If the experience is not acceptable, then you must write the exams. We will notify you if you have this option. DO NOT submit work experience unless you are notified that you are eligible for this.

OR

  • The ARC has determined that your performance in completing deficiencies through the course or exam route demonstrates an acceptable level of education. 

Application approval

Once confirmatory exams have been completed, or they have been waived, APEGS will send you a letter informing you that you have been approved as an engineer-in-training. This letter will include a dues notice for your annual membership and licence fees. You will also be notified by automatic email on how to check your application status in APEGS Central. Fees can also be paid in APEGS Central under "Invoices".  

You will have six weeks to pay your annual membership and licence fees after you have been approved. You can use the title "Engineer-in-Training" as soon as you are approved, however you must pay the annual fees before the deadline provided in your approval letter. 

Your certificate will be delivered after it is signed by the President, which can take up to six weeks. You do not need your certificate in your possession in order to start using the title "Engineer-in-Training".

Engineer-in-Training Stamp

After you have paid annual fees, the stamp will be mailed to you. Delivery can take up to five weeks within Canada or longer outside Canada. 

What if I'm not sure I'll meet the academic requirements for engineer-in-training?

If you are not sure if you meet the academic requirements for engineer-in-training, you should apply as an engineer-in-training anyway and see what the results are. If your result shows that you do not meet the academic requirements, your options would be to fulfill the deficiencies, or apply as an engineering licensee. The application fee for engineering licensee would be reduced by the amount you paid to apply as an engineer-in-training in the past (the difference in the two application fees is currently $100). 

Important!

If during the registration process APEGS discovers that an applicant or member may not meet the Good Character Guideline then action will be taken.

The email will state: Your application for an academic review as part of your member-in-training application with APEGS is completed in full. We have received all the documents we need and your file is now considered to be “in progress”. The estimated time for the academic assessment to be completed is one year from this date.

We will not provide status updates by email or phone, so please do not contact APEGS to inquire about it. Once the Academic Review Committee has made a decision on your file, you will be notified by mail. Please make sure that your contact information is kept up to date in our database to ensure that you receive mail from us. You can update your profile through APEGS Central (the new online profile). Click Login on the top right corner of any APEGS web page to login.


What is an Academic Assessment?

APEGS will compare your academic background to the Canadian academic standard for geoscience. The Canadian Council of Professional Geoscientists (Geoscientists Canada) has set this standard and outlined it in a document called “Geoscience Knowledge and Experience Requirements (GKE)”, or GKE for short.


Possible Results of Academic Assessment


Deficiencies:

If there are any gaps in your academic background compared to the GKE then you will be assigned to fill these gaps or “deficiencies”. If you have more than six deficiencies then APEGS will deny your application. However you will be given a “roadmap” of what you must do to re-apply in the future. You are given three options for fulfilling deficiencies:

  •  taking an approved course(s)

OR

  • writing challenge exams

OR

  • writing a description of work experience that demonstrates knowledge of the deficient areas (called Recognition of Prior Learning or RPL)

Once your deficiencies have been fulfilled, you will be assigned confirmatory exams.


Confirmatory Exams:

If APEGS determines that you have a four-year bachelor level program of study in geoscience that meets the content requirement as specified in the GKE, then you will be assigned confirmatory exams. There are usually three confirmatory exams, but this is at the discretion of the Academic Review Committee (ARC). These technical exams confirm that the level of your academic training comparables to that of a four-year Canadian bachelor degree in geoscience.


Waiving Confirmatory Exams:

Confirmatory exams may be waived in the following circumstances:

  • You have completed an M.Sc. or Ph.D. in geoscience.

OR

  • You have five years or more of acceptable work experience. If the Academic Review Committee (ARC) determines that this is an option for you, you will be notified in writing an you must write up your work experience following APEGS experience reporting guidelines and have it assessed by the Experience Review Committee (ERC). We will notify you if you have this option. DO NOT submit work experience reports unless you are notified that you are eligible for this.

OR

  • The Academic Review Committee (ARC) has determined that your performance in completing deficiencies through the course or exam route demonstrates an acceptable level of education.


Once confirmatory exams have been completed, or they have been waived, APEGS will send you a letter informing you that you have been approved as a geoscientist-in-training. You have the privilege of using the title "Geoscientist-in-Training" only after you have been approved. This letter will include a dues notice for your annual membership and licence fees. Once you have paid the fees, we will send you your stamp and certificate. You will have six weeks to pay your annual membership and licence fees after you have been approved. You can use the title "Geoscientist-in-Training" as soon as you are approved, however you must pay the annual fees before the deadline provided in your approval letter.

 

What if I'm not sure I'll meet the academic requirements for geoscient-in-training?


If you are not sure if you meet the academic requirements for geoscientist-in-training, you should apply as a geoscientist-in-training anyway and see what the results are. If your result shows that you do not meet the academic requirements, your options would be to fulfill the deficiencies, or apply as a geoscience licensee. The application fee for geoscience licensee would be reduced by the amount you paid to apply as an geoscientist-in-training in the past (the difference in the two application fees is currently $100.   


Important!


If during the registration process APEGS discovers that an applicant or member may not meet the Good Character Guideline then action will be taken.

How do I provide Direct Confirmation of Graduation?

Option 1: Send the Direct 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 or technical school where you completed your bachelor degree or diploma. They 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 or diploma to be sent directly to APEGS. The transcript must show the degree or diploma awarded.

How do I provide Proof of Idenitifcation?

You must provide proof of your identity. Refer to the following documents:

Proof of ID policy

Proof of Identification Fillable Form

 

Step 3: File Reviewed by APEGS 

APEGS reviews your documents for completeness, and if further information is required, APEGS will contact you.


Step 4: References Gathered by APEGS 

APEGS issues requests to your identified referees. We do not share these request reports with you; We only share them with the Licensee Admissions Committee. 

Step 5: Review of Application by Licensee Admissions Committee

Once we receive the references and you have completed all documents, the APEGS Licensee Admissions Committee considers your application. The Committee may approve you to enter the one year probation period. If not, further information or experience may be required.

Please note that the Licensee Admissions Committee meets quarterly. They accept information, completed forms, etc. up to two weeks prior to the next committee meeting. Only those applications that are complete, including references by the deadlines below, will be reviewed at the next Licensee Admissions Committee meeting. It is highly recommended that you get all information submitted at least one week before the cut-off date. That way, if there are any issues found with the forms, there is a chance they can be resolved prior to the cut-off date (all issues must be resolved before the application file will go to the committee).

Upcoming submission cut-off dates (there must be no issues with the applicant's file in order for it to go to the committee. These dates are subject to change):

Cut-Off Date: Results Sent By:
May 31, 2019 June 30, 2019
August 23, 2019 September 30, 2019
November 29, 2019 December 27, 2019
February 28, 2020 March 31, 2020
  • Further dates will be posted here as committee meeting dates are set.
  • These dates are subject to change.

Results of the Licensee Admissions Committee review are not provided by phone or email. Results are sent by letter and can be found in APEGS Central (the new online profile) under “Applications” when they become available. Please do not contact the APEGS office for results. If there are issues with your application, you will be contacted.

Step 6: Probation 

If you enter the one year probation period, then we require you to submit two 6-month work experience reports. You will be notified in writing if this applies to you. During this year, you may apply to attend the Law and Ethics Seminar, and write the Professional Practice Exam.

An applicant’s probation period may be backdated, at the discretion of the Registrar, upon recommendation of the Licensee Admissions Committee. If it is determined that the applicant’s education and experience exceed the minimum required for their licensee category by at least one year, the probation period may be backdated appropriately and the requirement for additional work experience and reporting revised accordingly. 

Step 7: Final Approval

If you pass the Professional Practice Exam, and complete the one year probation period, your application will receive final approval from the Registrar. You will then receive a dues notice for annual fees. Once you have paid annual fees, your stamp will be delivered. Delivery can take up to five weeks within Canada (longer outside Canada). You will receive instructions on how to pay annual fees after you have been approved and payments can be made in APEGS Central (the new online profile) under "Invoices".

Note that it can take up to six weeks for your certificate to be delivered, but that will not prevent you from using your new title and practicing as an Engineering Licensee or Geoscience Licensee, as applicable once you have been notified by the Registrar that you are approved.


 Is anything else required?

You may submit the following applications at the same time as your licensee application, if they are required.

Permission to Consult

I am an appropriately licensed individual (or have applied) and need Permission to Consult

How to reinstate your licence if need be:

If you are granted a licence waiver and sometime later during the year you return to work or obtain engineering or geoscience work on projects or properties located in Saskatchewan, then you shall advise APEGS and pay the appropriate, prorated licence fee. Call the APEGS office or email us at apegs@apegs.ca and we will create the appropriate annual dues notice. You can pay it in one of three ways: by credit card in your On-Line Profile, credit card number provided over the phone, mail a cheque. Your licence is not reinstated until payment is received.


You are not eligible for a licence waiver if:

a) Your circumstances are not listed above;

b) You are resident in Saskatchewan, are employed (including non-engineering/geoscience jobs) and are registered in Saskatchewan only, regardless of the location of your workplace;

c) You are an Official Representative for a Certificate of Authorization (C of A) and there is no other Official Rep for the C of A that is licenced;

d) You are a Temporary Licensee.


Retroactive Remission of Licence Fee

There are some members who qualify for a licence waiver who are also eligible for retroactive remission of the licence fee upon written request to APEGS, and they are as follows:
- residing in Saskatchewan, not practicing engineering or geoscience in Saskatchewan and unemployed (not working at any job whatsoever); or
- any member, regardless of place of residence:
       - pursuing full-time studies at an educational institution;
       - on maternity, paternity or parental leave;
       - away from the work force to raise a family or provide elder care;
       - retired and not eligible for Life Membership;
       - on disability leave.
(Any circumstance not listed here are not eligible for retroactive remission of the licence fee).

Retroactive remission may be granted for the licence fee applicable to the previous calendar year only. Retroactive remission for a waiver of the licence fee will only be considered for durations of three consecutive months or longer. The three consecutive months do not have to occur all in the same calendar year.

If you are eligible for retroactive remission of licence fee, a credit will be applied to your account (to be used toward future annual fees). A refund will be issued only if you discontinue membership. The refund would be granted to the person / company who paid the licence fee.

Example of how retroactive remission of licence fee works

Let's say Jane is a professional member and starts her maternity leave on May 15, 2018:

a) Jane pays full fees for 2018 (membership and licence fee). She would have done that by December 31, 2017.

b) In November 2018, Jane will receive her 2019 renewal notice. Jane will apply for a licence waiver for 2019 and request retroactive remission of her licence fee for June to December 2018 (starting the month after she started maternity leave). Retroactive remission of the licence fee can only be granted based on what has already occurred (not based on future, planned events), that is why she has to wait until she receives her renewal notice to request it for the past year.

c) Upon return to work (assuming that is May 15, 2019), Jane will call the APEGS office to inform us that she has returned to work and she will be sent a dues notice for the May to December 2019 which needs to be paid within six weeks. 

In summary, here are the actions that Jane needs to take:

a) Pay full fees for the entire year that she starts maternity leave (2018 in this case),

b) While on maternity leave, she will receive her renewal notice. She does three things at that time (before December 31, 2018). The first two things can be submitted together:

    - submits the licence waiver application / declaration for the upcoming year by mail, fax or email to apegs@apegs.ca (the licence waiver application comes with her renewal notice and is called the "Yellow form"),

    - sends a request by mail, fax or email to apegs@apegs.ca that states "I am requesting retroactive remission of my licence fee for June to December 2018 because I was on maternity leave",

    - pays the $89.25 membership fee (includes GST) for the upcoming year. Payment options are shown on the Green Info Sheet and the licence waiver application / declaration that came with her dues notice (the Yellow form). The licence waiver will not be approved or processed until payment is received. She will receive a credit on her account for the prorated licence fee for June to December 2018 ($212.92 plus GST = $223.57),

c) When Jane returns to work (assuming that is May 15, 2019), she calls the APEGS office and tells us that she has returned to work. APEGS will send her a dues notice for the prorated licence fee for May to December 2019 ($243.33 plus GST = $255.50). A "Consolidated Dues Statement" will be attached which shows the credit on her account from the 2018 licence fee ($223.57), so she owes only $31.93. This needs to be paid within six weeks.

  • Experience Guideline 3
  • Mentor Approval form
  • Mentor Request form
  • Self check list - Geoscience


YouTube videos of the paper-based Work Experience Reporting Orientation are posted at the bottom of this page.
 The paper-based system applies to all geoscientists-in-training and applies to only certain engineers-in-training - those who submitted at least one experience report on the paper-based system prior to Jan 1, 2019. (Engineers-in-training who had not submitted any experience reports in the paper-based system by January 1, 2019 must use the new Competency-Based Assessment system). 

When Filling out Experience Reporting Forms:

  • Always use the most recent version of the reporting form (download date is located below each attachment). 
  • Use the "Self-Check List" and the "Work Experience Reporting Orentation presentation" posted below to ensure that your report is completed properly. 


The experience reporting form was created in MicroSoft Word 2003. To use the form: open it; save it to your computer; close it; and re-open it. It should open in Microsoft Word. The hyperlinks and other features in the forms should then be functional. 

Once your Report(s) has been submitted:

  • APEGS requires one to three months from the time forms are received and completed in full to complete the review.
  • If there are problems with your report(s), we will contact you.

Instructions and guideline for engineering experience reporting, click here

Instructions, forms and guidelines for geoscience experience reporting, click here

*Note 1: Experience reporting is for registered members-in-training as well as member-in-training applicants (international graduates) who have been assigned confirmatory exams and have been given the option of submitting work experience to waive confirmatory exams.

*Note 2: If you are a professional engineer in the United States and you have an up-to-date NCEES Record, then your NCEES Record will suffice for experience reporting, academic documents and references. There is no need to submit experience reports in APEGS forms if you will be submitting your NCEES Record.

Results of experience review are not provided over the phone. Results are sent by email when they are ready. Do not contact the APEGS office for experience results. It takes one to three months for experience to be reviewed from the time forms are received and completed in full. If there are problems with your report(s), you will be contacted.


Experience Report Submission Cut Off Dates


The Experience Review Committee receives reports two weeks ahead of each committee meeting. Cut-off dates for receipt of experience reports for upcoming committee meeting dates are shown below.  It is highly recommended that you get reports submitted at least one week before the cut-off date. That way, if there are any issues found with the report, then there is a chance it can be resolved prior to the cut off date (all issues must be resolved before the report will go to the committee).



Upcoming report submission cut-off dates (there must be no issues with the report in order for it to go to the committee. These dates are subject to change):

Cut-off Date*Results Emailed By

Results of experience review are not provided over the phone. Results are sent by email when they are ready. Do not contact the APEGS office for experience results. It takes one to three months for experience to be reviewed from the time forms are received and completed in full. If there are problems with your report(s), you will be contacted.


 

How do I submit completed experience reports to APEGS?


Your options for the paper-based system are as follows (applies to all geoscientists-in-training and to any engineer-in-training who is eligible to continue in the paper-based system - meaning you have at least one paper-based report submitted before January 1, 2019):

1) Mail. Ideally submit the original, hard copy of the completed report by mail. You should always keep a copy of the report just in case it doesn't arrive at our office.

2) Scan and email to apegs@apegs.ca. If you are concerned that the report will not make it to our office by the cut-off date you are aiming for, you can scan and email the report to apegs@apegs.ca.  The scan must be of good quality and the file size less than 5 MB. Good quality is necessary because once we receive the report we have to print and scan it again in a small file size for posting to a secure file sharing site for Reviewers. Also, if your supervisor or mentor scanned and emailed the signed report to you, then you printed it for your signature and scanned it again, then by the time we print and scan it the third time, the quality can become too low for Reviewers. Therefore, mailing the original is preferred. 

3) Fax. We discourage faxing reports since the quality is usually very poor and hard to read after it is scanned again for Reviewers. 


For the new, online CBA system (engineers-in-training only), all information is submitted through the online system. 


Experience Reporting Orientation Presentation

Live orientation sessions are normally scheduled twice per year in Regina and Saskatoon. See the APEGS Events calendar for the next presentation date. If there are none shown there, then the next one has not been scheduled yet.

Engineering/Geoscience Licensee - Inter-Association Mobility Paper Application form 

You may apply using the paper 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.

Next Steps

Once APEGS has received your application we will contact the applicable Association(s) / Ordre(s) directly to confirm your registration. Lisensees and P.Tech.s registered in Alberta with ASET, will not be required to attend the Law and Ethics seminar or write the Professional Practice Exam.

After your application is approved by the Registrar you will be notified by automatic email on how to check your application status and pay annual fees. You have the privilege of using one of the protected titles "Engineering Licensee" or "Geoscience Licensee" as applicable only after you have been approved.

After you have paid annual fees, your stamp will be delivered which can take up to five weeks (longer if outside Canada). 

Your certificate will be delivered after it is signed which can take up to six weeks. You do not need your certificate in your possession in order to start using one of the protected titles.

Is anything else required?

You may submit the following applications at the same time as your licensee application, if they are required:

Permission to Consult

I am an appropriately licensed individual (or have applied) and need Permission to Consult.

Certificate of Authorization

I am applying on behalf of a company for a Certificate of Authorization.

Important! 

If during the registration process APEGS discovers that an applicant or member may not meet the Good Character Guideline  then action will be taken.

Dream Big for Engineering and Geoscience Week


Engineering and Geoscience Week in Saskatchewan was from March 3 - March 9, 2019.

APEGS gave a DVD of Dream Big: Engineering Our World with an educator guide to every school in Saskatchewan so that all students can learn more about engineering right in the classroom.

Dream Big, narrated by Academy Award® winner Jeff Bridges, transforms how people think about engineering. From the Great Wall of China and the world’s tallest buildings, to underwater robots, solar cars and smart, sustainable cities, Dream Big celebrates the human ingenuity behind engineering marvels big and small, and reveals the heart that drives engineers to create better lives for people around the world.

Click here for the Dream Big: Engineering Our World official trailer.

Dream Big Movie Showing


APEGS sent a letter and the Dream Big FAQ (frequently asked questions) to education centres in early December about Dream Big requesting a list of schools interested in having an engineering or geoscience professional introduce the show with a contest and prizes. 

Thank you to the 100 schools that expressed interest by the January 31, 2019 deadline. 

To see how the movie and educational resources fit with the Saskatchewan curriculum for each grade, schools can check out ROVER, the Ministry of Education’s video streaming service), at https://rover.edonline.sk.ca/en/rover/videos/2804.

Thank you, volunteers, for helping APEGS dream bigger! 

Almost 300 engineering and geoscience professionals volunteered to introduce Dream Big: Engineering Our World at a school during Engineering and Geoscience Week. Thank you to all those who signed up and to those we were able to match with a school to introduce the movie.




Work Experience Reporting - Engineering - Paper-Based System

https://www.apegs.ca/Portal/Pages/work-experience-reporting-engineering-paper-based-system

Work Experience Reporting - Engineering - Paper-Based System 


Ensure that you have read thoroughly and understand all experience reporting guidelines before beginning your work experience submission. This will greatly increase the chance of success and reduce the risk of being required to re-submit.

BEFORE YOU GET STARTED - If you are an engineer-in-training and have not submitted any experience reports in the paper-based system by January 1, 2019 then you must use the new online Competency-Based Assessment system, not the paper-based system. 
For the background on teh change to CBA for engineers-in-training, click here

This page contains information on the outgoing, paper-based experience reporting system for engineers-in-training. You are only eligible to use the paper-based system if at least one paper-based report was received at the APEGS office, completed in full by December 31, 2018.  

If you are a professional engineer in the United States and you have an up-to-date NCEES Record, then your NCEES Record will suffice for experience reporting, academic documents and references. There is no need to submit experience reports on APEGS forms if you will be submitting your NCEES Record. 

This web page contains the following information on the paper-based system:

  • Work Experience Reporting Orientation presentation and YouTube video recording
  • Experience reporting form - Engineering - updated version posted below September 11, 2018
  • Experience Guideline 1 - updated version posted below September 11, 2018 
  • Experience Guideline 1, Appendix 1 - Engineering Experience Examples
  • Experience Guideline 2 
  • Significance of Regulatory Agencies Guideline April 2018
  • Software Engineering Experience Review Guideline
  • Mentor Approval form 
  • Mentor Request form 
  • Self check list - Engineering 


When Filling out Experience Reporting Forms:

  • Make sure you always use the most recent version of the reporting form (download date is located below each attachment). 
  • Use the "Self-Check List" and the "Work Experience Reporting Orientation presentation" posted below to ensure that your report is completed properly. 

The experience reporting form was created in MicroSoft Word 2003. To use the form: open it; save it to your computer; close it; and re-open it. It should open in Microsoft Word. The hyperlinks and other features in the forms should then be functional. 

Once your Report(s) has been submitted:

  • APEGS requires one to three months from the time forms are received and completed in full to complete the review.
  • If there are problems with your report(s), we will contact you. 

You can submit the professional member application at the same time you submit the last of your reports. See the Professional Member page for the application instructions. 

We send experience results by email, results will not be provided over the phone. Do not contact the APEGS office for experience resultsThey are sent when they are ready.  You can also check experience and application status in APEGS Central (your online profile) by clicking "Login" in the top right corner on the APEGS website then navigating to "Applications" then select your professional member application workflow. 


Mentor Approval and Mentor Request forms


For the paper-based experience reporting system only:
APEGS only requires a mentor form if your supervisor is not a P.Eng or would not be considered a professional engineer in the country where you obtained your experience. Those members-in-training needing a mentor for experience reporting purposes need to submit to APEGS either the Mentor Approval form (in cases where you have a mentor in mind already) or the Mentor Request form (if you require a mentor from the APEGS list of volunteers). Please note that due to high demand and fluctuating quantity of volunteer mentors, mentor requests may take 6-8 weeks or more to process. See section 4 of Experience Guideline 1 for complete information. 

 


Experience Reporting Orientation Presentation

For the Experience Reporting presentation and YouTube video on the paper-based system, see Related Attachments below.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on experience reporting can be found here.

If you have questions about experience reporting contact Alex Chabun, Registration Assistant at 306-525-9547 or 1-800-500-9547 or alexc@apegs.ca. Because of the high volume of inquiries to the APEGS office, please allow a couple of weeks for a response.
