Competency Based Assessment for Reporting and Examining Work Experience of First Time P.Eng. applicants is now live

Engineers Yukon P.Eng. applications for first time Canadian registration are reviewed on our behalf by the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA)

At the beginning of May, APEGA launched an improved system for reporting and examining the work experience of applicants applying for professional engineer designation. Anyone applying to be a professional engineer will from now on be directed through the new system, called competency-based assessment (CBA). Applications already in progress will continue using the former system.

Featuring a list of core competencies that applicants will use to measure and explain their engineering work experience, regardless of discipline, CBA is a fairer, more transparent, and more equitable process. CBA makes it easier for applicants to understand how their skills are recognized and evaluated. It is also less complicated, more consistent, and more objective for APEGA's Board of Examiners when the board determines whether candidates meet Yukon standards for qualification as an engineer. Please note: this does not change the requirement for an applicant to have at least 48 months of relevant work experience including experience that is obtained in a Canadian environment or that is equivalent to Canadian context (exposure to cold climate, experience in Canadian business practices, application of engineering codes & standards relevant to Canadian practices).

How Does CBA Work?

CBA asks applicants to explain how they meet specific competencies in 22 key areas, which are grouped into six categories:

  • technical competence
  • communication
  • project and financial management
  • team effectiveness
  • professionalism
  • social, economic, environmental and sustainability

Applicants are given a list of indicators for each competency. The indicators are examples of work situations an applicant can use to demonstrate competence. For each competency, applicants must provide at least one actual situation, plus several actions or details, making it specific to their experience. Then applicants must summarize the outcome of each situation, highlighting how their actions contributed to its overall success.
