Engineer-in-Training – Canadian Graduates

Below is the application process for engineer-in-training applicants with a Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) accredited bachelor’s degree.

  1. First you must determine if you have a CEAB accredited bachelor’s degree in engineering. You can check by going to the Engineers Canada website. If your Canadian bachelor’s degree in engineering is not CEAB accredited then you have two options:
    1. Refer to your local post-secondary institution for information on upgrading your degree.
    2. If you have significant work experience in your field apply as an Engineering Licensee.
  2. Create a user account with APEGS here.
  3. You will need to check your email for an “APEGS sign up verification” from The link in this email will take you to the APEGS Central homepage.
  4. Once on this page, go to the “Applications” quick link on the left side of the page, select “Apply Now” and choose the “Engineer-in-Training Canadian Graduate” application type. To submit your application online you must pay the application fee by credit card (go to fees to view additional payment options).
  5. You must send the following required documents to APEGS:
Good Character Requirement

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

What Happens Next?

After you have been approved, an invoice for annual registration fees, prorated for the remainder of the year, will be posted to your online profile. After you have paid your registration fees you can use the “engineer-in-training” title. You will receive a certificate indicating that you are registered as an engineer-in-training with APEGS. You do not need this certificate in your possession to start using the title “engineer-in-training”.

Please Note: You must you keep your APEGS profile information up to date, as APEGS will regularly need to contact you by both email and regular mail.
