Members in Training Application Summary
A Member-in-Training (M.I.T.) is an individual who has met the academic requirements for licensure and is working towards gaining the required experience for licensure as a P.Eng. or P.Geo.
The M.I.T. designations are E.I.T. (Engineer-in-Training) or G.I.T. (Geoscientist-in-Training).
There are two requirements you must meet to become enrolled as a Member-in-Training with APEGA:
• Academic requirement
• Good character and reputation
An M.I.T. can practice engineering or geoscience in Alberta and gain the experience required for licensure as a P.Eng. or P.Geo. as long as he or she is working under the supervision and control of a licensed Professional Member.
When an individual applies for member-in-training status the application goes for an academic review, after which it goes to the APEGA Board for a final decision.
The Board may rule that the individual is fully qualified for enrollment as an M.I.T. or it may assess the applicant technical examinations.
If you hold an EIT or GIT designation and want to apply to become a P.Eng. or P.Geo., you should complete the Professional Member application and not the Interprovincial Transfer one.
