The Professional Practice Exam (PPE) is a national examination administered by the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) on Law and Ethics. It is written in Manitoba twice a year, once in April and once in October. This year's write dates are listed in the PPE Application form.
All general enquiries about the PPE should be directed to the APEGA office, Karrie Kitt, Assistant to the Registrar, ph: (780) 426-3990, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
All people wishing to be Registered by APEGM need to complete this examination prior to professional registration. If you have passed the PPE in another Canadian association, you will not be required to write the PPE again through APEGM.
You must register for the examination through the APEGA office. First, download the PPE Application form (pdf format), complete it, and mail or fax the form to the APEGA offices as directed on the form. The dates of the next sittings and the deadlines for application are also on this form.
The study materials comprise two text books and four Industry Canada documents. All study materials may be ordered through the APEGA office by downloading and completing a Study Material Order Form (pdf format).

2013 PPE Syllabus Change Details.
Please note that when reviewing the above link, that APEGM does NOT require two years of professional experience prior to writing the exam. At APEGM it is possible to write the exam as long as you are either an assessment applicant OR an MIT with APEGM. There is no extra essay question or additional questions above and beyond the APEGA exam when writing with APEGM.
Contact the Admissions Coordinator if you have specific questions regarding the location and/or date of the next PPE. All PPE applications must be sent to APEGA (not APEGM) by the deadline date listed in the application form.
