Registering for the Professional Examination
The professional examination is an excellent starting point for the junior engineer program. For that reason, the OIQ strongly recommends that you register for this examination and pass it as soon as possible. Aspiring engineers will find it easier to join the profession if they have a full grasp of the subjects covered by the examination.
Registration and session calendar
To register for the professional examination, you simply need to fill out and send the registration form (reserved for members) for the professional examination at least two months before the date of the desired session.
Every year, the OIQ holds several examination sessions across Quebec. View the calendar of upcoming sessions.
- If you registered for the first time on the roll of the OIQ after May 2, 2009 and the three-year period has not elapsed, you will not be charged a fee when you register for the professional examination.
- If you have been registered on the roll for more than three years or never paid the junior engineer program fee, you will have to pay the examination fee. To find out more about the cost, please refer to the fee schedule.
Postponing an examination you have registered for
If you would like to postpone an examination that you have already registered for, you must do so by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org at least four weeks before the date of the session you registered for; otherwise, you will have to pay the related costs again.
