Some applicants for registration are required to attend an interview with Engineers and Geoscientists British Columbia as part of their assessment process. The interview is a professional peer review of the qualifications and work experience claimed by applicants for registration. They are scheduled through invitation only, and applicants are sent an interview request only after an application for membership and all supporting documentation is received and evaluated.
The Interview Panel consists of professional engineers (P.Eng.) or professional geoscientists (P.Geo.) from various industries who have volunteered their services to Engineers and Geoscientists BC. Each interviewee is interviewed by two professionals within the discipline and specialty for which they are applying. A staff representative from Engineers and Geoscientists BC may occasionally attend the interview as well. The association video-records all interviews to have an accurate record of the interview session.
Following the interview, the Interview Panel makes recommendations to the Registration Committee, and this committee adjudicates a decision regarding registration.
The interviews are held during business hours at our office at 200-4010 Regent Street, Burnaby, BC.
Applicants can request a remote video conference interview instead of an in-person interview at the Engineers and Geoscientists BC’s office. There is a fee for this service. Applicants must also agree to the requirements as outlined on the Remote Interview Request Form.
