In the APEGS process, becoming a geoscientist-in-training is the first step towards registration as a Professional Geoscientist, regardless of how much experience you may have, or from where you received your education.
To become a geoscientist-in-training you must demonstrate that you have met the academic requirement for licensure as a Professional Geoscientist.
For information on the application process, choose the option below that applies to you.
If you have a four-year Canadian bachelor’s degree in geoscience you should apply under the Geoscientist-in-Training – Canadian Graduate category. If you have a Canadian degree that is not in geoscience, but is in a related science, you should apply under Geoscientist-in-Training – International Graduate category.
If you have a bachelor’s degree in geoscience from outside of Canada, or a Canadian degree that is not in geoscience (but is in a related science), you should apply under the Geoscientist-in-Training – International Graduate category.
