Progress Reports document your work experience and are reviewed by the Experience Review Committee before being credited towards your pre-registration program requirements.
You must use one of the following documents as the guideline for completing your reports:Acceptable Engineering Work Experience (PDF)
Submit a progress report after every 12 months of new work experience:
The Experience Review Committee will:
If late fees or pre-enrolment fees are owing, Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba will notify you via the online feedback.
You must review the Frequently Asked Questions.
The recommended frequency of work experience reporting was changed in June 2018, from six-month periods to one-year periods. However, your reporting periods should be split according to Supervisor, or position held, as your case may be, even if that does not fall on 12-month boundaries.
If you are claiming past experience (e.g. late experience or pre-enrolment experience), you should write one detailed report per job, no matter how long. For example, if you are claiming for 36 months of past experience and you worked in two different jobs, one for 24 months and one for 12 months, write a detailed report for each.
You have two months grace after the end date of each 12-month report to submit the report to the Association. If you submit it within those two months all your experience will be counted as Regular experience.
Students do not submit 'Regular' experience, only 'Pre-Grad' experience.
If you submit your report after your two months grace following the end of your reporting period, Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba will count back 14 months (12 months for the standard reporting frequency plus 2 months to submit). If the date (14 months back) falls within your reporting period, the time prior to that date is Late Experience. You must pay a late fee to claim the Late Experience. To do this:
If you are claiming pre-graduation experience, provide one report per term of employment. This applies even if you worked for two separate work terms at the same place of employment and with the same supervisor. Only time earned at least half-way through your degree (at least 58 credit hours completed) will be credited.
Please note, the ERC will no longer accept pre-graduation reports that are submitted more than 18 months after your date of graduation from your Bachelor's degree.
If you are claiming pre-enrolment experience, earned prior to joining the Association, treat this similar to 'past experience' described above. There is a fee to claim each month of pre-admission work experience. You will receive credit for the number of months you pay.
