    I am getting serious with my application now. Here's my scenario - I worked in AB oil fields as electrical engineer for 5 years before moving to USA where I am doing similar stuff. I have had 6 years of expererience. Do you guys think it is worth it to get PENg if I am going to continue living in US? For my application do I have to provide them with recent past 4 years so... 1yr exp in US + 3 yr exp in AB,Canada? Any advice helps. Thanks!

    Unless you're doing work in the US for the applicable province in Canada, I don't see any benefit in being a registered professional engineer for that province. Just another annual membership fee to pay.

    So my EIt is only valid for another 2 years I think, if I give up on that then how easy would it be to reinstate that or even get a PEng after that? Or should I get a PEng, AB now and then give it up because later the process might be easier for reinstating that if I move back to AB?

    Read the Reinstatement section:
    https://www.apega.ca/members/changes/

    There is an MIT reinstatement form and professional member reinstatement form. You have 7 years for this until you'd have to reapply entirely.

    For one thing while 4 years of experience is required you need to provide them with records for ALL your experience from what I understand. So put it all in. Can’t hurt your application in any case. I believe up to 1 year of foreign experience is allowed for the 48 months.

    It’s better to get admitted to AB IMO then just transfer your membership. It’s tough to take away once you have it and will be a big benefit if you ever move back to AB, unless you really never plan on doing that. Option 2 which is probably better is just registering down in the US where you are. But might be easier to get your AB designation and transfer it there.

    I think it really hinges on if the option of coming back to work in Canada is important to you?

    Since APEGA is changing the application process it might be easier to apply now and get it done with. I had a friend tell me November was the cutoff but I started my application on Oct 26 and finished it yesterday and it was still using the Work Experience Record. Otherwise if you keep waiting it'll change to the competency based assessment.

    Just checked my APEGA account and it's now showing my status as professional member. Haven't had any official correspondence yet but looks like everything went through and got approved. Guess I'm a P. Eng now!

    started my application a couple days ago. it's still the same, but they do have an optional self-assessment which follows the new requirements. but it doesn't get reviewed. not sure if other applicants had this also

    Mine took about 13 months beginning to end. Once you get it, the timing screen disappears but it is a few months each step if I remember.

    I submitted my application early November but forgot to email APEGA regarding my academic documentation until mid December. My applications coordinator emailed me the following Monday for corrections on my WER. I resubmitted it and she said there is a queue since most staff were on holidays. She managed to get through it in a few days and sent the questionnaires out before the new year. Yesterday all of my references have submitted their questionnaires so now I am waiting for the board review.

    Hopefully whoever is reviewing your WER is back from holidays soon and can move along your application.

    When I applied, I applied in July 2015, and got my P.Eng in Nov. 2015.

    What sucks is that I got my P.Eng 2 months after getting laid off... and yeah haven't worked as an engg since FML

    I got laid off in 2016 3 months away from my P.Eng experience. I found it such a headache looking for work as an EIT.

    2018 and I'm still behind my grad year in my P.Eng application. Way it goes in this economy my friend.
