Volunteer with APEGBC's Registration and Expert Review Committees

Posted on 03 April 2017

APEGBC seeks volunteers for its various Registration and Expert Review committees. These featured volunteer opportunities all play vital roles in the application process of prospective members.

Registration Interviewers

APEGBC is looking for volunteer Registration Interviewers to assist with part of the experience review of prospective members by interviewing them and providing comments regarding their qualifications. Interviewers must be an APEGBC professional engineer or professional geoscientist (P.Eng., or P.Geo.) and have at least five years of professional-level experience in their declared field of practice. APEGBC is looking for interviewers from a range of disciplines, but is in particular need of those from Mechatronics, Mechanical (HVAC) and Building Science/Energy Work, Environmental, Computer, and Software.

Registration Competency Assessors

APEGBC is looking for volunteer Registration Competency Assessors to assist with part of the experience review of prospective members by remotely reviewing and assessing applications in their disciplines. Assessors will review  applications and verify that the applicants have met the experience, competency, and education criteria for their area of expertise, then comment on whether the applicant can be recommended for professional registration.  Assessors must currently be an APEGBC professional engineer or professional geoscientist (P.Eng., or P.Geo.) and have at least five years of professional level experience in their stated field of practice.  APEGBC is looking for assessors from a range of disciplines, but is in particular need of those from Civil – Water/Sanitary, Civil – Transportation, and Civil – Construction. 

Registration Reviewers – Board of Examiners

The Board of Examiners reviews the academic qualifications of applicants for admission to engineering membership or licence who do not meet the academic requirements as set out in the Engineers and Geoscientists Act. Applications are reviewed by discipline-specific Examiners, who recommend whether the applicants meet the academic requirements for membership registration. The Registration Committee forms decisions based on these recommendations. Successful Board of Examiner candidates must be registered professional engineers for at least five years (at minimum one year with APEGBC) in good standing, have experience in academia either currently teaching at or retired from a local post-secondary education institution offering accredited engineering programs, and have a good understanding of engineering program curricula and requirements in Canadian universities. Familiarity with Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board requirements is preferred.

Registration Fairness Panel Expert Reviewer (Mining Discipline)

The APEGBC Registration Fairness Panel Expert Reviewers play a vital role in the application process of prospective members when a request for reassessment or appeal is made that has resulted in reconfirmation of the decision, or in an outcome that is not acceptable to the applicant. Expert reviewers in the Mining Discipline are called upon by the Registration Fairness Panel for advice and recommendations as required. Expert reviewers are asked to review files based on their discipline of expertise and provide feedback to the Registration Fairness Panel. The Mining Expert Reviewer must be a registered professional in good standing with APEGBC, have past experience serving as a Registration Reviewer or Interviewer, and have current expertise within the Mining Engineering Discipline.
