APEGGA members keep proving their south-of-the-border
value with outstanding performance in Fundamentals of Engineering
exams. In the second round of exams proctored in Alberta
by Canadians, all 51 members passed, said Milt Petruk, P.Eng.,
PhD, APEGGA’s examinations manager.
The October 2003 writing had only one person of 67 fail.
The FE exams are the first step towards licensure by U.S.
state boards. Through an agreement with the National Council
of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors, APEGGA now proctors
the exams. In the past, this required Montana State Board
representatives travelling to Edmonton.
Average score in the April exams was 82.1 per cent, Dr. Petruk
reported. The lowest was 71 per cent, the highest 96 per
cent. Four writers scored 90 per cent or better.
