    File review requests 

    1. Extensions

    To request an extension of your deadline for taking and passing assigned examinations, you need to fill out the review request form and pay the file review fee (click here to view the Fee Schedule). Your request must include the reasons why you were not able to write your assigned examinations by the set deadline and specify the period of time that you will need to write them. You will also need to submit supporting documentation so that the Professional Practice Admission Committee (previously named the Examiners' Committee) can evaluate the soundness of your reasons.
     
    You should know that if you write an examination in the last session it is offered before the deadline set for you (it is not enough to simply register for an examination), an additional six months will automatically be granted to you.

    2. Change in the new Policy on evaluating engineering permit applications

    If you received your assigned examination(s) before January 1, 2013, your file was evaluated under the previous policy. To be evaluated under the new policy, you can request a file review.

    Before you submit a review request, we encourage you to consult “The Compass” so that you can assess how it will impact your currently assigned examinations. It is important to use this tool before you submit a review request because the number of assigned examinations may be higher when the new policy is applied.

    Please note that no exemption will be granted if you have already failed one or more examinations.

    3. Admission examination review

    You can request the Professional Practice Admission Committee (previously named the Examiners' Committee) to review your examination within 30 days of sending the notice that you failed an examination. To do so, you need to fill out the review request form and pay the file review fee (click here to view the Fee Schedule). If you would like to request a review of more than one examination, you will have to pay the fee for each request.

    We strongly suggest that you obtain a copy of your examination booklet so that you can submit your comments and arguments to the marker.

    You can add a letter to the review request form with explanations for the marker. For instance, you can indicate the answers that you believe are worth more points and the reasons you think so.

    4. Obtaining new engineering experience certification forms

    You must send:

     

    Also, in a case of a failed exam, a candidate cannot replace this exam, even if he acquired experience or obtained a higher studies diploma. The candidate must pass this failed exam.

    5. Credit request for an equivalent course

    Please note that this review request is reserved for individuals whose file was evaluated under the previous policy on evaluating engineering permit applications, i.e. before January 1, 2013.
    Once your official transcript has been received (directly from the educational institution), you can request a review of your file. To do so, you need to fill out the review request form and pay the file review fee (click here to view the Fee Schedule).

    You need to have passed the course(s) and received at least a C in them, or your request will be rejected (The passing note for an equivalent course is C.  C- is not accepted.)

    Please note that this option is not available to all candidates. Prior authorization must be granted by the Professional Practice Admission Committee (previously named the Examiners' Committee). In addition, you need to meet certain conditions. We suggest that you read the previous version of the admission examinations guide for more details.

    6. Obtaining a graduate engineering degree

    Your file will be reviewed by the Professional Practice Admission Committee (previously named the Examiners' Committee) when we have received: the review request form with the payment of your file review fee (click here to view the Fee Schedule), and an official final transcript sent directly by the educational institution. 

    Also, in a case of a failed exam, a candidate cannot replace this exam, even if he acquired experience or obtained a higher studies diploma. The candidate must pass this failed exam.

    Before you submit a review request, we encourage you to consult “The Compass” so that you can assess how it will impact your currently assigned examinations.
