Application process: (for professional registration)
- See Internationally Educated page to locate EGM Licensing Flowchart and Academic Assessment Application. When viewing the flowchart, please note the process begins at Step 2. Step 1, Graduate from University, has been omitted as Step 1 applies to engineering and geoscience students only.
- When submitting the Academic Assessment Application (Internationally Educated) to EGM, applicants must include a WES Canada credential assessment. EGM requires a specific type of WES assessment. For details see “Before You Apply” on the EGM Licensing Flowchart (pdf). When viewing the flowchart, please note the process begins at Step 2. Step 1, Graduate from University, has been omitted as Step 1 applies to engineering and geoscience students only.

Related occupations / Alternate careers:
There are many reasons an internationally-educated engineer may be interested in working in a related occupation. Related occupations provide an individual with the opportunity to:
- apply his/her skills and experience in a different (but related) occupation;
- gain meaningful, interim employment while pursuing professional certification;
- gain meaningful, alternative employment (as a stepping stone or career goal) if he/she chooses not to pursue professional certification or if he/she is not eligible to pursue professional certification.
Listed below are examples of occupations in the broader field of engineering and construction. While each occupation will have its own set of employment requirements, none are regulated occupations in Manitoba and therefore do not have certification / registration requirements with a professional regulatory body. Employers often, however, require applicants to have job-specific experience, training, and/or certification. Always check the hiring criteria carefully. Hiring criteria is set by the employer and will vary from employer to employer.

|2262||Engineering inspectors and regulatory officers|
|2263||Inspectors in public and environmental health and occupational health and safety**|
|* Some employers may require technicians and technologists to hold certification with the Certified Technicians and Technologists Association of Manitoba (CTTAM)|
|** Some employers may require specific certification in the field.|

When researching information on professional registration policies and procedures, always refer to the regulator to ensure accurate, up-to-date information.
1 The Government of Canada updates the National Occupational Classification (NOC) every five years. At present, users can access three versions of NOC (2016, 2011, and 2006) on the NOC website. With each update, some NOC codes will change but the majority will stay the same. When searching an occupation on the NOC website always use the most recent version (NOC 2016). The Government of Canada also operates Job Bank using NOC codes. Job Bank, however, currently operates on NOC 2011. When navigating on Job Bank, always use 2011 NOC codes.
