Geoscience Self-Evaluation Checklists


For the three disciplines of geoscience, Engineers and Geoscientists British Columbia's academic requirements are aligned with the Geoscientists Canada Knowledge Requirements. Each geoscience self-evaluation checklist lists the topics that are required knowledge in a particular discipline.

When you submit your application for geoscientist-in-training (GIT) or professional geoscientist (P.Geo.), please also submit the corresponding self-evaluation checklist for the discipline of geoscience you are applying in.

Why Use the Self-evaluation checklists?

Geoscience students:

  • Use the checklists to plan your courses in advance so that when you apply for GIT membership, you will be in a better position to meet the academic requirements.

New GIT/P.Geo. applicants:

  • Use the checklists so that you can compare your academic qualifications to each topic requirement in a particular discipline.

Before Beginning:

General Self-Evaluation Checklists

If you attended a post-secondary institution outside of BC, please use one of the following checklists. Checklists assist in the academic review of your application. The course code for each corresponding topic on the list must match what is listed on your transcript(s). A course can only be used once on the checklist.

BC Institution-Specific Self-evaluation checklists

Engineers and Geoscientists British Columbia has developed institution-specific course equivalency lists for the following BC universities. Please be aware that course codes are subject to change. A course can only be used once on the checklist. At this time, only equivalency lists for the disciplines of geology and environmental geoscience have been developed. We will continue to update as more lists become available.
