Pre-Registration / Intern Program
When Do I Begin the Pre-Registration Program?
Academic Assessment Applicants
Upon receipt of your Letter of Invitation, you may apply for admission to the pre-registration program.
You may apply directly to become an Intern of the Association if you hold a Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) accredited undergraduate degree.
Please arrange to have your original final transcripts, indicating your degree awarded and date of graduation, sent directly from your university to the Association.
You must obtain employment under the supervision of a Professional Engineer or Professional Geoscientist who is registered with the Association and assume responsibility for your work while you prove you have the knowledge and skills necessary to register as a professional engineer or geoscientist.
Those who do not have a direct P.Eng. or P.Geo. supervisor will be required to find a mentor who is registered to sign off on their progress reports. Comments from both the direct supervisor and the mentor will be required. [more]
You must acquire the following while under supervision:
- 4 years of work experience (minimum)
- 48 hours of volunteer service
- 48 hours of professional development
Make sure that you review the Frequently Asked Questions about the Intern Program.
- You submit online reports to claim your time for work experience, volunteer service, and professional development
- Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba will review your reports and award you credit
Once you are close to completing the requirements, Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba will prompt you to pass the professional practice exam and submit professional references prior to completing the registration process.
Please note that you are allowed to write the national professional practice exam at any time after joining the pre-registration program; you do not need to wait to be prompted to write the exam.
Complete and submit your Application for the Intern Program.
The Pre-Registration Program Coordinator oversees the program and prepares the Experience Review Committee agenda. Contact them if you have questions relevant to the pre-registration requirements.
