Licensure Assistance Program

The PEO Chapter is launching a Licensure Assistance Program in your area. This program is designed to link licensed Professional Engineers (Guides) with Engineering Interns to provide guidance and support to the intern as he/she progresses towards professional licensure status.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of PEO and participating through the association can be a very rewarding experience that provides on-going professional skills development.

This Licensure Assistance Program is expected to run from 3rd June to 3rd December. You would be expected to meet with your guide/intern for at least 2 hours a month over that time period and to provide feedback to the Chapter.

Your valuable experience is needed to help guide a young intern to licensure. Volunteer to be a part of this great, new initiative!

For more information and to apply, please click on PEO Licensure Assistance Program.
