Competency Based Assessors - Multiple Positions Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba is currently piloting the Competency-Based Assessment (CBA) with a small cohort of interns. CBA is conducted to determine if an applicant has progressed to a professional level of competency in their field of work experience, by asking applicants to use situational actions to demonstrate their achievements of the required competencies.

Assessors will review submissions as well as validator feedback to provide ratings for each competency and then comment on the applicant's readiness for professional registration.

We are looking for additional Assessors that are currently registered as a practising professional member and are receiving remuneration on a full-time or regular basis (greater than 300 hours per calendar year) in the practice of professional engineering and/or professional geoscience, are reporting full ProDev, and have an awareness of current practice standards, employer contexts, and workplace cultures.

Association Committees Committees cover a wide variety of Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba functions. If a committee is looking to fill a specific vacancy they will post an item on this page.
Association Chapters Chapters are active and diverse, with many opportunities to lend a hand. Contact each chapter for details.

Regardless of the current calls for volunteers, you can submit the volunteer application form to register your interests, which we can review when a specific need arises.
