The Lakeland Branch is proud to have APEGA’s Practice Standards team present on the revised practice guideline Selecting Engineering and Geoscience Consultants.

A professional practice guideline provides professional practice advice and best practice recommendations to help permit holders and licensed professionals meet their professional obligations.

In this session, we discuss the revised Selecting Engineering and Geoscience Consultants (v2.0, April 2022) practice guideline and go through the six steps of the qualifications-based selection process. Case studies will be presented for consideration and attendees will have multiple opportunities to ask questions.

Please review the practice guideline prior to attending the session. To view all publications, visit the practice standards, bulletins, and guidelines web page.
