All You Need To Know About APEGS Work Experience Reporting

Before beginning your work experience submission, make sure you have read and comprehended all of the APEGS work experience reporting guidelines. This will considerably improve your chances of success and lower your chances of having to re-submit.

Members-in-training and member-in-training applicants (foreign graduates) who have been assigned confirmatory examinations and have been given the option of providing work experience to waive confirmatory exams must disclose their experience.

If you are a professional engineer in the United States with an up-to-date NCEES Record, it will satisfy experience reporting, academic documents, and references. If you are submitting your NCEES Record, you do not need to submit experience reports in APEGS forms.

As of September 24, 2021, APEGS will accept NCEES records again, with the following new conditions.

  • Must have some NCEES record experience from the last two years that is certified by a PE with first-hand knowledge of the experience.
  • If you have at least one year of experience in North America, you will be eligible for 48 months of experience credit.
  • If no experience comes from North America, the candidate will be given 36 months of credit and will be required to meet the Canadian Environment Competencies in the Competency-based Assessment method to be given credit for the final 12 months.
  • If the candidate has some experience outside of the United States, but less than one year, ERC will decide whether the applicant will be required to meet the Canadian Environment Competencies in the CBA system.

How Can I Get APEGS Work Experience Reporting Done?

The following are your options for the paper-based system (applicable to any engineer-in-training who is eligible to continue in the paper-based system – meaning you have at least one paper-based report submitted before January 1, 2019, and applies to any geoscientist-in-training who is eligible to continue in the paper-based system – meaning you have at least one paper-based report submitted before January 1, 2021):

1) The postal service. Send the original, hard copy of the completed report by mail if possible. In the event that the report does not arrive at our office, you should always save a copy.

2) Scan and email your experience review to experience-review@apegs.ca. The scan must be of acceptable quality, with a file size of no more than 5 megabytes. Because we have to print and scan the report in small file size for sending to a secure file sharing site for Reviewers when we receive it, good quality is required. Also, if your supervisor or mentor scanned and emailed the signed report to you, then you printed it for your signature and scanned it a third time, the quality may be too low for Reviewers by the time we print and scan it the third time. As a result, it is preferable to mail the original.

3) Send fax. We do not recommend faxing APEGS reports because the quality is frequently poor and difficult to see after they have been scanned again for Reviewers.
