The Council of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Manitoba (APEGM) has decided that geoscientists who enrol as members before June do not have to take the professional practice examination. The geoscientists, who became part of the engineering association under legislation passed two years ago, still have to meet competence and experience requirements.

The examination requirement is wavered only for the first geoscientists who become members and ceases to apply after the June date. The council’s decision went against the recommendations of the admissions board.

The Manitoba association also voted not to impose a mandatory professional development program on members, but rather to have a voluntary program. This decision was based on a survey of engineering “stakeholders” who indicated overwhelmingly that they had no concerns about the competency or ethics of engineers.
