Workshops/Training Courses
Nov. 7, 2016

This course meets the requirements as outlined in the Examination Syllabus developed and approved by the Engineers Canada Qualifications Board and is meant for individuals working towards their P.Eng. License, who are required to write the corresponding exam.

The distance education program works as follows:

  • Each course is 8-12 weeks in duration.
  • You will receive a set of notes each week covering the course material via the internet. In addition, you will receive practice problems and assignments very similar to the associations' past exams.
  • A one hour video-conference session will be conducted by your instructor each week. The objective of this session is to assist in solving the assignments as well as answer student questions that should be sent to instructor early enough prior to the meeting time. In addition with being able to communicate with the instructor, you will also be able to communicate with other students in the same class and watch their questions answered as well. A high speed internet connection is strongly recommended for this feature.
  • Each set of assignments must be completed and submitted by the indicated date and your completed assignment will be marked and returned by your instructor.
  • Upon completion of the assignments, you will be sent a final exam. It is recommended that you try to simulate the actual exam conditions (i.e., no aids and a time limit) when writing it. You will then submit this final exam for review and marking.
  • To gain the most from your course, it is highly recommended that you participate fully in all discussions and assignments. Please remember that each course has 8-12 weeks duration and set dates for assignments to be submitted and a set date to submit the final exam. You will be informed of these dates when you receive the course schedule.
