By enrolling as an MIT and participating in our program, this helps you ensure that you gain experience that is rich and varied to allow you to progress to the level of maturity required to make reliable professional judgments.
This period will provide you with the opportunity to develop your skills and judgement while being supervised by a Professional who will give you feedback. This experience is documented and submitted in logs and reports. See samples below.
To become enrolled as a Member-in-Training (MIT) in NB, you must:
- Be a resident of NB
- Be academically qualified: Have graduated with a CEAB-accredited Bachelor of Engineering degree or a Bachelor of Science degree in geosciences from a Canadian university which meets Geoscientists Canada’s Geoscience Knowledge & Experience Requirements.
- Be able to communicate effectively in English or French: If your bachelor’s degree was taken in English or French, you are exempted from providing further proof to your language ability. If your bachelor’s degree was not taken in English or French, there are multiple ways you can demonstrate that you can communicate effectively. Contact APEGNB for more information on language requirements.
If you meet the above requirements, please submit the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Proof of Canadian citizenship, residency or appropriate visa
- Official transcripts sent directly from your university (NOTE: Official transcripts must be sent directly from your university to APEGNB. Unofficial transcripts or transcripts that have been opened by the individual will not be accepted.)
- A completed application form
One business day after receiving confirmation of your submitted application, you can pay by the application fee by credit card by calling (506) 458-8083 extension 0.
Once your file is complete, it will be sent to the Board of Admissions for review and approval.
Enrollment as a Member-in-Training for the duration of the period when gaining your post-graduation experience is the recommended route to obtaining professional status, but it is not mandatory. You may remain enrolled as an MIT for up to 5 years while you gain appropriate work experience. In certain cases, you may request an extension beyond 5 years.
Pre-Graduation Work Experience
Engineering and geoscience related work experience gained prior to graduation can be submitted for review to the Board of Admissions once you are enrolled in the Member-in-Training program provided that:
- The engineering or geoscience work experience is completed AFTER the mid-way point of your degree (that is, after you have completed half of your degree course load).
- The engineering or geoscience work experience MUST be attested to by your supervising Professional Engineer or Professional Geoscientist during the work term. It is not necessary that the PEng or P.Geo be registered with APEGNB as long as they are registered with an engineering/geoscience association. If the PEng / PGeo is registered elsewhere, please have him / her stamp off your work with their engineering or geoscience stamp; and
- Up to 12 months of pre-grad experience can be credited towards the work experience requirement.
