Paths to Your CBEPS Certificate
PATHS TO YOUR CBEPS CERTIFICATE
There are many paths that can be followed in becoming qualified as a licensed Manitoba Land Surveyor. All candidates must first have their academic credentials evaluated by the Canadian Board of Examiners for Professional Surveyors (CBEPS) to receive a Certificate of Completion of Academic Requirements (C of C). The candidate may be required to take courses and write exams to prove proficiency in areas that the CBEPS feels are deficient before receiving the Certificate of Completion.
Graduates with a university degree in Geomatics Engineering from the University of Calgary or the University of New Brunswick who have taken the prescribed courses will be granted a C of C without any further course work. Graduates from technical institutes who offer Geomatics/Surveying Engineering Technology diploma programs, such as Red River College, British Columbia Institute of Technology or College of the North Atlantic, may receive exemptions in some subjects.
Upon receipt of the C of C, a candidate may then register with the Board of Examiners of the Association of Manitoba Land Surveyors as a Land Surveyor in Training, and undertake an internship with a licensed Manitoba Land Surveyor. During the internship period, the candidate must receive work experience and training in Manitoba, successfully complete projects and reports, and pass a series of written and oral examinations. The term of the internship will be based upon the candidate’s demonstrated experience and competencies.
