Four times per year MIT’s and
internationally-educated engineers and geoscientists write the Professional
Practice Examination to qualify for full professional membership with
APEGGA. Applicants will have the opportunity to take this optional
two-day seminar to assist them to understand the underlying concepts
covered in the exam. Seminars will be limited to 20 participants. Priority
will be given to those who have applied to write the exam.
The exam is based on five areas:
1. Professionalism, including ethical
standards and codes, environmental responsibilities, etc.
Practice, including competence, risk management, etc.
Authority Requirements, such as OHS and WCB
4. Law and Legal Concepts,
including contracts, intellectual property, etc.
5. The Acts, including
regulations and bylaws, use of stamps, etc.
Participants in the seminar
will gain maximum value from the seminar if they have read the recommended
textbooks prior to attending the seminar. While the seminar will
assist candidates in their preparation by helping with the understanding
the principles, it cannot replace thorough reading of the texts nor
can it guarantee success in the exam.
The seminar will be offered by Bill Page, P.Eng., LLB. Mr. Page has
a B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Saskatchewan
in 1971; an MBA from the University of Alberta in 1975; an LLB from
the University of Alberta in 1988; and a Certificate in Conflict Resolution
from the Justice Institute of British Columbia in 1999. His major areas
of expertise are in Intellectual Property Management and Management
Counsel. Mr. Page’s expertise has been acquired through the Oil
and Gas industry and the Public Sector.
