Work Experience Reporting - Geoscience
Ensure that you have read thoroughly and understand all experience reporting guidelines and the experience reporting form before attempting to write experience reports. This will greatly increase the chance of success and reduce the risk of being required to re-submit.
This page contains information on the paper-based experience reporting system for geoscientists-in-training:
- Work Experience Reporting Orientation presentation and YouTube video recording
- Experience reporting form - Geoscience
- Experience Guideline 1 - updated posted below Sept 11, 2018 (changes pertaining to engineers-in-training only)
- Appendix 2 - Geoscience Experience Examples
- Significance of Regulatory Agencies Guideline APRIL 2018
- 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.
We send experience results by email when results are ready and do not provide results over the phone. Please do not contact the APEGS office for experience results. 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.Geo or would not be considered a professional geoscientist 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 Orientation presentation and YouTube video on the paper-based system, see the bottom of this web page.
If you want to request a live presentation for a group of people (small or large), please contact the APEGS office.
