  • How do I submit my proof of academics?

    Canadian Post-Secondary Institutions: Applicants should arrange to have their universities send electronic versions (or mail) official copies of their complete set of academic transcripts DIRECTLY to PEGNL.

     

    International Post-Secondary Institutions: Applicants must arrange to have a WES (World Education Services) Course-by-Course Evaluation report sent DIRECTLY to PEGNL (delivered electronically via AccessWES). If an applicant is unable to obtain a WES report, PEGNL may, at its discretion, accept an alternative credential evaluation service report.

  • I’m a MIT – what’s next?

    The only requirement for MITs is that they complete the annual renewal, which is typically released in early November. While you are not required to file or submit professional development, it is strongly encouraged to do so to become familiar with the system and for carryover purposes when you become fully licensed.

     

    During your MIT period, you should be working towards fulfilling the 5 requirements for professional licensure:

    • Academic Qualifications (approved when you became an MIT)
    • Experience Qualifications – 48 months of engineering or geoscience experience and successful completion of a Competency Based Assessment
    • Language (already approved if your degree was in English)
    • Character (assessed through character questions on the application form and feedback from your validators upon submittal of your Competency Based Assessment)
    • Ethics – complete the National Profession Practice and Ethics Exam (NPPE). We recommend that you have a minimum of 24 months of experience completed before you attempt the NPPE.

     

    Early career and young professionals should focus on familiarizing themselves with the Competency-Based Assessment system, particularly the competencies and their indicators. It is recommended that you work on your Competency Self-Assessment throughout your MIT period, recording experience and competency examples as you obtain them. You may choose to revise examples as you gain more experience, but becoming familiar with the system early on will help you to identify areas where you need further development.

     

    Also, review the emails PEGNL sends you. Some contain important information on professional practice. There are also professional development opportunities presented in our weekly Member Announcements. Explore PEGNL’s online learning portal (available through the member portal). Some courses on there could be very helpful in achieving some of your competencies and be useful as part of preparing for the NPPE.

  • When am I eligible to write the NPPE Exam?

    You must either have an application in process or be registered as a Member-in-Training (MIT) with PEGNL. It is strongly recommended that MITs have at least two years of the required four years of work experience before attempting the NPPE.
