By enrolling as an MIT and participating in the Internship 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. The internship 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.
You should keep a chronological, logbook or journal for all the time that you are gaining engineering or geoscience work experience. You will submit this Logbook (and the corresponding Progress Report) to the Internship Committee for review after 6 months of employment, after 2 years of employment, and finally after 3 years of employment. You will submit a summary of your 4th year of employment when you apply for PEng or PGeo status.
The Internship Committee reviews your work experience by examining your periodic submissions which have been attested to by your (direct) supervisor, who must be a PEng or PGeo. If your supervisor is not a PEng or PGeo, you should apply to join the Mentorship Program of the Association.
Please note: You will save much time and effort when you go to apply for PEng or PGeo status, if you fill out and submit well written, timely logbooks reports while a MIT.
