PEO Grand River Chapter is inviting applications to participate in the Licensure Assistance Program (LAP).

What is LAP? 

PEO's LAP is a program that links engineering interns (interns) with professional engineers (guides) licensed with the PEO.

The purpose of this program is to provide the interns with guidance and support as they progress towards obtaining their professional engineering license.  PEO believes that this will equip new engineers with a greater understanding of their roles and responsibilities and for success in their chosen profession.

The primary objective of the LAP is to help guide engineering interns through the licensing process, develop as a professional, and assimilate into the engineering community.  While some discussion around career matters may occur, PEO does not intend the program to be a job finding mechanism.  The program will not find you a job nor meet the requirements for a professional engineer referee. 

 To learn more about the program there is an online module available. 

Application Process?

Applications for interns (EIT) or guides (P.Eng.) are being accepted here:  (on the left hand side under License Holders/EITs, click on EIT Licensure Program).  Applications are due December 31, 2017.

Please note that not all applicants will be accepted, as the number of matches typically depends on the number of guides that apply.

What are the Time Commitments?

This program kicks off in January 2018 and lasts approximately 4 to 6 months.

The expectation is that you attend an initial kick-off session and then meet with your match for at least two hours per month, in person.
