Work Record Validator List
The Work Record Validator List (WRVL) is a high-level, chronological overview of your experience. It includes brief details of your employment positions, responsibilities, and experience.
Each WRVL page must include:
- The name of the employer you worked for and the position you held there
- The country the work was performed in
- Your start date, your end date, and the total months you worked for the company
You must provide at least 48 months of engineering experience supported by validators and references. However, you are encouraged to provide all your relevant experience.
You must type your employment history in a chronological order and provide contact information for your validators and references.
Your work experience history must be verified in two ways: References confirm that you were employed for a given period and position, and validators review and score the competencies that you have claimed for that position.
Work Record Validators
Colleagues or mentors that you did not directly work with do not qualify to be validators, because validators need to have taken technical responsibility for your work.
If your validator is not registered with an engineering regulatory body in another Canadian jurisdiction, please identify the following:
- Professional designation
- Registration country
Work Record References
A reference is a person who can confirm your position and the duration of your experience with a company. This person can be your manager, a colleague, or a human resources staff member. Your reference does not need to have technical knowledge of your work and does not need to have been your direct supervisor.
You need at least one reference for each employer you have worked for. A reference can also be a validator.
Modified Reference Questionnaire
APEGA sends the Modified Reference Questionnaire (MRefQ) out to any references identified on the Work Record Validator List. References should review your work record, which is provided on page 3 of the questionnaire, and confirm the details you have provided.
