APEGBC staff will present an overview of certification and licensing in other countries. The presentation will include specifics and some cautions. Staff will also speak about how overseas experience (with Canadian companies and non-Canadian companies) factors into APEGBC licensure. The presentation will also touch on trade agreements of the future with respect to engineering services (such as the upcoming CETA).
An APEGBC member (Professional Engineers or Geoscientists) will give a presentation regarding their work outside of Canada and the impact it has had on their career.
