Supervising a CEP is an enriching experience in your career!
The supervisor's role
Supervisors coach CEPs, share their experience with them and guide them in applying the engineering lessons they have learned. More specifically, supervisors:
Supervisors must therefore have personal knowledge of their CEP’s work.
CEPs will need to complete a self-evaluation of their acquired targeted competencies by referring to the evaluation scales created by the OIQ. Their self-evaluation will then be validated by their supervisors using these same scales. For a more accurate CEP evaluation, supervisors will need to consult the other engineers who provided control and supervision for reserved activities that their CEPs performed, where applicable.

Conditions for being a supervisor
Note that supervisors may be engineers outside Québec, on condition that their CEPs are under the immediate control and supervision of an engineer registered on the Roll of the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec whenever the CEPs perform reserved acts. As far as their relationship to the CEPs is concerned, supervisors may be:
CEPs are responsible for choosing their supervisor, who must be approved by the OIQ at the beginning of their practical experience period.
