National Professional Practice Exams
For the second straight year, we administered a record number of National Professional Practice Exams (NPPEs)—all via remote proctoring. The exam tests applicants’ knowledge of professionalism, law, regulations, and ethics. APEGA develops and oversees the NPPE for 13 partner jurisdictions across Canada that, like us, require engineering and geoscience applicants to pass the exam before they can become licensed.
The growth in exam delivery is due, in part, to the recent adoption of the NPPE by Professional Engineers Ontario and the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan. Despite the increase in exam volumes for the NPPE and other exams, we had no inquiry backlog—we resolved all candidate and partner association questions within 24 hours.
“Great work being able to adjust to the pandemic and move the testing to be online! Very impressed and grateful.” – APEGA exam candidate
