How can you best navigate the P.Eng. competency-based assessment (CBA) system? Professional Engineer (P.Eng.) applicants are required to obtain a minimum of 48 months of acceptable, verifiable professional engineering experience, submitted through a CBA model. CBA is a tool, introduced by PEO in 2023, also used by other provincial regulators (BC, SK, MB, ON, NB, PEI, NL) to assess readiness for licensure that examines 34 engineering competencies across 7 categories: technical, communication, project management, professional accountability, and more. 


Our workshop pair gives you the skills and confidence to successfully write your CBA’s 34 engineering competencies. We’ve developed two alternating 4-hour workshops (Dates: July 30, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM & September 12, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM), each offered every few weeks (dates listed below). Each session covers different competencies while having common elements so learners can start with either one. After making progress on your CBA, join the next workshop, to reflect and ask questions then practice more competencies. 


Dates: July 30, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM & September 12, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM

By taking these workshops you will:

  • Gain clarity about what each competency means
  • How to use CBA indicators to guide your writing
  • How to select your work experience examples that demonstrate the competencies
  • Learn roles and responsibilities of the candidates, validators and assessors
  • Understand the competency rating system and the rating rubric
  • Build skills to write how you applied your engineering knowledge reliably and safely
  • Get your CBA questions answered
  • Get started, overcome procrastination, and make a plan to complete your CBA
  • Learn about 1-on-1 CBA coaching opportunities
  • Improve quality of your CBA before you submit to any of these provincial regulators: PEO, EGBC (engineers only), APEGNB, APEGS, EGM, Engineers PEI, and PEGNL.


The CBA system is designed to ensure that professional licensure requirements uphold and protect the public interest while maintaining an equitable, transparent, consistent and efficient licensure process. Also note: as of May, 2023, PEO is no longer evaluating for one-year of Canadian experience, so you can take this workshop and draw on  your international experience. These workshops and accompanying tools give you the skills and confidence to submit your best competencies to your provincial regulator, and get licensed sooner.
