As an MIT completes their Progress Reports, each report must be verified by a Supervisor who is a Member of APEGM. If the MIT's direct supervisor is not a P.Eng. or P.Geo., then the MIT must find a 'Mentor' who is professionally registered. In this case both their direct Supervisor and Mentor must submit their commentary on the report.
If an MIT creates their Progress Report using the paper forms, then the Supervisor must also comment using the paper form. Conversely, if the MIT creates their Progress Report 'electronically', then the Supervisor must also comment 'electronically'.
When an MIT submits an electronic progress report to APEGM, and has specified you as their Supervisor or Mentor, you will be notified via e-mail to your 'preferred' e-mail address that there is a new report awaiting your commentary. You will then login to the APEGM Online system and fill in your comments before submitting them for review.
If you have been assigned an APEGM ID number in the past (shows up on Membership cards), you are able to claim a login for APEGM's Members Website at any time. If your Supervisor does not have an APEGM number, there is a simple process to get one. This ID can be used for any login or identification requirements for a person.
We often reference 'Supervisors' or 'Mentors' in descriptions, and for all intents and purposes the information applies to both.
The direct supervisor of an MIT is responsible for guiding the development of the MIT in their career progression. He or she must complete the following sections of the MIT progress report in conjunction with the MIT:
If the direct supervisor is not a professional member, then a mentor professional member is required to complete the appropriate sections of the progress report as well. The mentor is the one who takes professional responsibility for the work of the MIT.
In order for an MIT to progress within the Pre-Registration program and to eventually become registered, it is important that reports be submitted in a timely fashion. APEGM does not review progress reports until everything has been received - including the MIT report, the supervisor portion, and the mentor portion if required.
If you are a supervisor or mentor, please try to make sure that you submit your reports as soon as possible after the MIT has submitted it to you. Generally, the portion that has to be completed by the supervisor/mentor is fairly minimal. Making sure that it's sent in right away will mean that the MIT will be able to get feedback sooner and hopefully be registered sooner.
It is up to the MIT, the supervisor, and the mentor to decide whether they wish to do the progress reports together or separately. APEGM will count the date that the MIT portion was submitted as the report submission date.
