of engineering examinations for the second time in the Association’s
history. Deadline is March 1 to register for the exams, which
APEGGA staff will proctor in Calgary and Edmonton on April

Successful completion of the eight-hour FE examination is
the first step towards licensure in U.S. states as a professional
engineer carrying the designation of P.E. Receiving licensure
in other jurisdictions is a good career move for engineers
who want to work outside Canada.
FE exams are held twice a year, in October and April. Actual
licensure remains the jurisdiction of each U.S. state’s
board, but passing the FE exams of the National Council of
Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors is a requirement. Last
fall 67 members wrote the exams in Calgary and Edmonton.
Registrations for the April 17 exams must be received by
March 1 – there will be no extensions. Cost is $125
US, which must be paid in U.S. funds. APEGGA will accept
VISA, MasterCard, bank drafts in U.S. dollars or U.S. cash.
