Work Experience Requirements for Membership

The Board of Examiners (BOE) makes the final decisions regarding applications and strongly emphasizes skills and competencies such as:

  • your ability to apply engineering or geoscience principles
  • your demonstrated technical proficiency

The BOE will consider increased technical competency and increasing levels of responsibility when evaluating your types of experience.

APEGA adheres to the privacy standards under the Personal Information Protection Act regarding the collection, disclosure, and use of personal information. It is your responsibility to personally complete all components of your application. APEGA does not accept third-party submissions and will only answer questions from the applicant.

If you have fewer than 4 years of experience, you must apply to be a Member-in-Training, which does not require a Work Experience Record (WER).

If you are applying as a Professional Licensee, a specialized Work Experience Record is downloaded from the website.


Engineering and geoscience applicants have a number of differences in their work experience requirements.
