If you have a minimum of 4 years of professional engineering or professional geoscience work experience, you should apply directly for professional registration (P.Eng. or P.Geo.). It is not a requirement that you first apply as a trainee (EIT or GIT).
If you apply for professional registration, you will need to meet the academic, experience, and law and ethics requirements before you are registered. If you apply for trainee status, you will be registered once you meet the academic requirements.
If you are an engineering applicant with a non-accredited degree and at least 5 years of professional engineering work experience, or a geoscience applicant with at least 7 years of professional geoscience work experience, we suggest that you apply directly for professional registration to have your experience considered for a potential reduction or waiver of academic examinations.
