Introducing PEAK: A new and important part of your professional life
Every day, whether it’s turning on the lights, driving a car, getting on an elevator or one of a number of countless ways, people put their faith in engineers. That’s why earning and keeping the public’s confidence is so essential – for every practicing engineer and for the profession as a whole.
It’s what makes the PEAK so important.
On March 31, 2017, the Professional Engineers Ontario association is launching PEAK – Practice Evaluation and Knowledge – a new program that will have an ongoing impact on all practicing engineers in the province.
The program will help meet the growing public demand for accountability – both from professionals and regulatory bodies – by providing PEO with an accurate and up-to-date regulatory profile of its license holders.
What you need to know
After the PEAK program goes into effect on March 31, 2017, as a practicing engineer, you will be encouraged to take part in the program whenever you receive a license renewal notice.
Participation in the PEAK program is voluntary, and it is not needed to either renew or maintain a license, however, your participation – or lack of it – will be publicly noted on PEO’s online directory of practitioners.
The program consists of three elements:
- An online practice evaluation questionnaire;
- A continuing knowledge declaration; and
- An online ethics module
The completion status of each element will be recorded for every license holder on the PEO’s online directory.
