Once an MIT approaches 40 months of approved experience, the Experience Review Committee (ERC) requests that confidential references be submitted. Generally, these references will consist of two to three Professional Members that have knowledge of the MIT's work.
Typically, the MIT will receive the request by letter from APEGM and they will provide the names to the Admissions Coordinator. The Admissions Coordinator will then contact the references and ask them to complete the reference form (PDF) (DOC).
It is up to the MIT to ensure that the referees submit as promptly as possible, since he or she will not be able to register until all references have been received and reviewed by the ERC.
It is possible for an MIT to contact the referees directly and ask them to submit the reference forms to the APEGM office. If this is done, it is important that the MIT contact the Admissions Coordinator to let them know the names of the referees and the fact that they have been contacted directly. This avoids having duplicate reference forms sent out.
The Admissions Coordinator is responsible for receiving the names of referees, sending out reference forms, receiving completed reference forms and providing them to the ERC.
