In order to qualify for registration as a Professional Engineer, an Engineer-in-Training must have obtained four years of acceptable engineering work experience attested to by a Professional Engineer having personal knowledge of the experience. Acceptable engineering experience is experience obtained under direct supervision of a registered professional engineer. If this is not possible, the engineer-in-training must present sufficient evidence to Council that his/her experience has been equivalent to that obtained under direct supervision. The term of this experience must be attested to by at least one professional engineer.
All EITs must register for the online Competency Based Assessment Program. Work experience is submitted, validated and assessed online through this program. Competencies are observable and measurable skills, knowledge, abilities, motivations or traits required for professional registration. When using the online CBA, after completing a minimum of three competency entries, at least one of which is from Category 1 - Technical Competence, you should submit it for interim validation to ensure you are completing it correctly.
