You may be eligible for a permit from the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec if, upon completing an engineering-related training program or work experience, you can demonstrate that you possess equivalent skills to those acquired by holders of a degree that qualifies for an engineer’s permit. More specifically, the following factors are taken into account in the evaluation of training equivalence applications:
- university degrees in engineering or applied sciences;
- the nature and content of the courses, training periods and continuing education activities completed;
- the nature and duration of your engineering work experience.
To review your application, the OIQ may require course and program transcripts and descriptions. As soon as you have received an answer from the OIQ confirming that your permit application is definitely eligible, you may continue the process (see the “Required documents” tab).
