he program provides tools for members to assess their current skills, knowledge and abilities, determine activities to maintain or enhance them and report completed activities online to APEGS as professional development credits.

Does Your Next Meeting Need an Ethics Topic?
Monthly ethics moments are available to APEGS members for use in meetings.
When an ethics moment is included in the minutes of a meeting, along with the start and end times of the ethics moment discussion and an attendance list this time can count as part of the member’s annual ethics requirement.
If you would like this month’s ethics moment, please email email@example.com

Of the many ways to get your annual ethics credit, here are two free online options that APEGS provides to help members who are working remotely:

The ‘Reporting Elsewhere’ Option
Do you live outside of Saskatchewan? Are you also reporting professional development activity to another engineering or geoscience regulator?
If yes, you are eligible to report to APEGS using the ‘Reporting Elsewhere’ option. This is a quick process, but it must be completed on an annual basis.
