Work Experience Reporting - Engineering 



Announcements posted Oct 11, 2019:

1) The ERC will no longer be doing official interim assessments as of Nov 15, 2019. A replacement for interim assessments in order to provide informal feedback to applicants is currently being decided.

2) Canadian Environment Competencies come into effect on Jan 1, 2020. This change affects international graduates as well as any Canadian graduates who have only experience from outside Canada and the USA.

The details are as follows:

  • All Engineers-in-Training and Engineer-in-Training applicants being assessed in the online CBA system are required to demonstrate the following eight competencies in a Canadian or Equivalent-to-Canadian work environment, effective January 1, 2020: 1.1, 1.6, 1.9, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 5.1, 6.2. Each of the competencies must be passed with a rating of the applicable Category average.
  • Any competency assessment submitted to Validators for validation on or after Jan 1, 2020 is required to meet the new Canadian Environment Competency requirement. This includes competencies that need to be re-submitted and were ready for validation on or after Jan 1, 2020.

Version 14 of the CBA Guide with full details will be posted to Related Attachments below by Oct 23.

 




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.

This page contains information on the new, online Competency-Based Assessment (CBA) experience reporting system which came into effect on January 1, 2019. For the background on the change to CBA for engineers-in-training, click here.  

If you are eligible to continue experience reporting in the outgoing, paper-based system for engineers-in-training, click here for that information. 

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.
