“My Experience Record Seems Easy To Write … But I'm Not Clear How To Format It, My Written English Isn't That Great, And This Is A Whole Lot Harder Than It Should Be!”
Dear Aspiring Engineer,
You've graduated with an Engineering undergraduate degree, got a few years of work experience and now you are ready to explain to PEO in writing that you've had the right mix of experience at work.
For many people, it is difficult and unnatural to take your Resume and morph it into an 8 to 10-page Experience Record. Others find the challenge in properly explaining what they've done and why they've done it. Everyone has the ability to submit a great Experience Record the first time and make the reviewer's job easy to say "YES, this is someone who deserves a P.Eng. licence now!"
.... Yet most people don't reach out for help and regret their decision when they are driving to Toronto for an interview with PEO.
The 3 things that may prevent you from obtaining your licence right away are:
- Lack of the Right Experience mix
- Where You Were Educated (in Canada or abroad) and
- Quality of Your Experience Record
You probably don't find the application process all that fun. We, however, enjoy helping aspiring engineers with their applications as we get satisfaction from showing you what to do and how to do it.
Most people visit this page because:
- They're having trouble starting their Experience Record
- They're having trouble finishing their Experience Record
- They have better things to do than work on it (e.g. full-time job, enjoying your weekends)
Regrettably, PEO does not release sample experience records. Fortunately, we are independent of PEO and we are here to help YOU submit a high-quality Experience Record.
To accommodate the varying needs of aspiring engineers, we're now happy to provide you with 4 offerings to accommodate any need or budget:
- Experience Record Cheat Sheet (free - use the form above)
- Rapid Submission Course & Sample Records ($149) - Step-by-step instructions, checklists, tools and lessons to submit in 30 days or less.
- 2-hour draft Experience Record Review ($275) - Receive actionable feedback on how to make immediate improvements to your draft. For civil, electrical or mechanical applicants, your review will be done by a P.Eng. with similar work experience.
- Bundle Pro Pack (Course + Review) ($350) - Save $74 when you combine the course and a review.

Rapid Submission Course & Sample Work Experience Records
Rapid Submission Course & Sample Records (RSCSR) is my complete step-by-step system designed to take you by the hand (as in step 1, step 2, step 3) to start, improve, finish and submit your professional looking Work Experience Record. No ambiguity or confusion. Literally step-by-step nothing is left out.

You'll receive 120 days of access to the content available 24/7 (it is all digital, so you can log in to access the content wherever you have an internet access), but you'll probably only need access to it for 30 days since that is our goal to help you submit in 1 month instead of 4.
The course uses a variety of content types: video, eLearning modules, quizes, printable checklist, scrolling PDF viewer of sample records and our really useful Situation Generator Tool software.

Who is behind the Experience Record Course & Review Service?
My name is Gavin and I've created the Experience Record products and services to help aspiring professional engineers answer the questions: What is really required in a good submission? and What does a well formatted well-written submission look like? In this guide, I've answered frequently asked questions as well as show a full sample experience record.
While preparing my own Experience Record some time ago, I was overwhelmed with all of the information and was concerned that I was leaving something out. Working full-time, I also had little time to dedicate to this process and delayed obtaining my P.Eng. by a number of months. I hope that you'll take the opportunity to try the above course or review service so that you can obtain your professional designation as soon as possible.
I worked in the construction industry for over 9 years and have been published in several magazines, including Construction Canada Magazine. In 2012, I volunteered with Engineers Canada and PEO to help it develop a new system for reporting engineering work experience. I now help aspiring engineers full-time by helping them overcome licensing hurdles.
