In a global market, it is vital that professionals attain and maintain the highest level of efficiency, productivity and ethical conduct possible. Now, more than ever, professionals need to do what they can to stay competitive. For engineers, geologists and geophysicists this includes being licensed with The Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists and Geophysicists of Alberta (APEGGA). Since 1920, APEGGA has been a vibrant and progressive self-governing association fulfilling the mandate given to it by The Engineering, Geological and Geophysical Professions Act. APEGGA registers, sets practice standards and determines disciplinary actions, when necessary, for its more than 49,000 Members.
