About 2 days after putting ( Jan 22 ) in my application i checked my status that was saying my academic records were missing, which was stupid since I'm already a registered EIT. Anyhow a quick phone call in and the guy was able to put me directly in the application queue over the phone. So definitely something to check as that could have taken them quite a while to resolve on their own.

Now today ( Feb 1 ) I have started getting emails saying my character declaration and my work experience record has been accepted and my references have been sent the questionnaire. I didn't expect to get to this step until the summer by the way people were talking.

That's pretty fricken fast if I say so myself so maybe they have churned through the backlog?

I have also been assigned to a coordinator and everything outstanding is being live tracked on the website.



Thats pretty standard. Those steps occurred right away with mine as well. The big backlog/time sucker is the experience examiner and review board (they're the last of the ~8 or 10 stages it has to go through).

Sorry to piss in your cornflakes, but you aren't even close to knowing if you have a fast application process

Hilarious, well whatever it doesn't really bother me. Getting the questionnaires out sooner actually helps me with some timing stuff with my references so ill take that as the positive and call it a day.

Gives me something to occupy my mind haha

Yeah thats about normal. Mine was:

Apply
A couple days - References sent out
2.5 months of hounding my twat of a reference to fill out the stupid survey
5 months of being reviewed because of the backlog
1 month of review completed and will go in front of the board at the next meeting (usually around the 15th of the following month)
Got my PEng.

Total time ~9 months but a large chunk of that was wasted on a reference not doing the survey. One of my coworkers just got hers and she did it 3 months end to end. They appear to have caught up on a lot of the backlog and are processing applications faster now.

So... how many months later? Apega is just acknowledging they have all my references. Be careful who you ask to sign off on you kids...

Apparently the 12-18 month clocks starts now

Engineering is the worst.

Its been quicker lately. My co-worker got hers done late fall and it was only about 2 months from when her references were all in. Not sure if thats changed since then.

The 12-18 months was right from the horses mouth in their email today. Though probably a gross overestimate agreed.

I just hope they don't come back to me on anything cause that is what will eat up time.

Yeah, tracking down your references and getting them to actually respond is by far the worst part of the process.

For me, the references was the easiest part. Chalk it up to active networking I suppose.

APEGA just sucked the hind tit on the review process for mine.

It was one reference without a company email that brought it down to a crawl for me. So they mailed it to him. Then he want to Hawaii for a month and a half.

Oh well it's done now. Ironically now I am at a point where the PEng could really help me for work and I need to get it to have a chance of promotion.

Yeah, non-email references can really slow things down. I had 2 that had to be done by mail, and that added probably an extra month. Finally got mine, in total it took about 15 months.
