Reinstate as Trainee or Non-Practising Registrant

 

About this Category

This category is for former trainees (EIT and GIT) who wish to reinstate their registration and former registrants (P.Eng., P.Geo., P.L.Eng., and P.L.Geo.) who wish to reinstate their registration with non-practising status.

Reinstatement as a non-practising registrant does not grant you practice rights (the authority to engage in Reserved Practice). If you intend to practise engineering or geoscience in British Columbia you must reinstate your practice rights.

  • Former trainees (engineers-in-training or geoscientists-in-training)
  • Former registrants (P.Eng., P.Geo., P.L.Eng., or P.L.Geo.) who wish to reinstate their registration with non-practising status
