Reconsiderations & Reassessments | APEGA

Reconsiderations & Reassessments

You can request a reconsideration or a reassessment to have the Executive Committee of the Board of Examiners (BOE) re-evaluate its decision if you did not provide your complete education, experience, or other relevant information with your original application.

Reconsideration: If you submit your request within 30 days of receiving the BOE’s decision letter.

Reassessment: If you submit your request 30 days after receiving the BOE’s decision letter.

To request a reconsideration or reassessment, send APEGA:

  • a completed reconsideration/reassessment form with payment information
  • a letter addressed to the BOE detailing the reasons for your request and listing the supporting materials included
  • new information or material that was not previously submitted (e.g., WES-ICAP report (course-by-course*), transcripts, course descriptions**, updated work experience records)

* WES-ICAP report (course-by-course): This report only confirms the level of your Canadian-equivalent education (e.g., master's degree, bachelor's degree, diploma, college-level certificate). The BOE will decide if the content and quality of your education is acceptable to be licensed in engineering or geoscience.

** Course descriptions: We must receive these directly from your institution, be able to see them on the institution's website, or you must send us original, official university material (e.g., course or program listing or catalogue).

Full-Board Review

If you are dissatisfied with the reconsideration or reassessment of the Executive Committee of the BOE, you may request a reconsideration or reassessment by the full board of the BOE.

The full board meets twice a year. To request a full-board review, send APEGA:

  • a completed reconsideration/reassessment form with payment information
  • a letter addressed to the full board of the BOE detailing the reasons for your request and outlining any supporting materials included
  • new information or material that was not previously submitted for the reconsideration or reassessment (e.g., WES-ICAP report (course-by-course), transcripts, course descriptions, updated work experience records)

The decision of the full board of the BOE is final. No further reconsiderations or reassessments are possible.
