Every day, engineers have to inspire trust, plan for the worst and take risks. For that reason, the OIQ must be just as rigorous in helping its members fulfill their obligations. Would you like to know more about the junior engineer period, the legal aspects of the profession, professional development or the many tools and services you can use to improve your practice? We are there to support you.
Now more than ever, the OIQ must restore and strengthen the bond of trust between the public and its members. To do so, it takes various initiatives to better govern the profession and ensure its growth. Its constant vigilance takes many forms: the review of the Engineers Act, the upkeep and improvement of competencies, compliance with the Code of Ethics of Engineers, the adoption of a regulation on continuing education, monitoring unlawful practice and improper conduct, etc.
The OIQ is also using new technologies to make your life easier: you can edit your member profile, complete your annual registration. You will also be able to apply for an engineer’s permit or a junior engineer’s permit, consult the register of decisions and judgments, find out about job offers in engineering, etc.
It also has tools to help you effectively plan your competency development, such as the Professional Practice Guide, the Guide to Developing Engineering Competencies, the
User’s Guide to the Continuing Education Regulation, etc.
It also provides you with detailed information about the junior engineer period, activities held by the OIQ, various OIQ committees, insurance, etc. In short, it has everything you need to continue on your way to joining the profession.
Continuing education: it’s our business and we take care of it!
As of April 1, 2011, all members of the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec must complete at least 30 hours of continuing education activities per two-year reference period. To assist you in this process, the OIQ developed the Guide d'application du règlement sur la formation continue. We urge you to read it so that you understand all of the specifics of the new requirement and take the necessary steps to comply with it.
