Engineer in Training
Difference between Engineer-in-training and Professional Engineer
An Engineer-in-Training (EIT) is working towards gaining the 48 months of required work experience they need to be a Professional Engineer. This includes 12 months of equivalent Canadian experience. These engineers have already met the education and good character requirements.
A Professional Engineer (P.Eng.) is licensed to practice professional engineering in the area of their expertise and take full responsibility for their own work.
