PEAK – Professional Quality Assurance Beyond Licensure
June 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The Brantford and Hamilton-Burlington Chapters are pleased to host Arden from PEO headquarters who will provide an overview and be available for questions.
The Practice Evaluation and Knowledge (PEAK) program is a regulatory initiative created by PEO, the engineering regulatory, to serve and protect the public interest in relation to the practice of professional engineering in Ontario. Professional engineers and limited licence holders are asked to complete the program yearly on a voluntary basis.
Through the PEAK program, the public will have access to the practice status declaration and PEAK program completion status for every PEO licence holder.
The program promotes continuing education and ethical practices among PEO licence holders and collects vital practice details on whether they practise, how they practise and how they stay knowledgeable. These details equip PEO to more effectively regulate the engineering profession in Ontario through evidence-based policy making.
If you are a PEO licence holder, the PEAK program helps you publicize your participation in the program and your commitment to protecting the public interest through continuing competence, professionalism and accountability. It also helps you show your respect for the privilege of a self-regulating engineering profession.
From this seminar, you will learn:
· What is the PEAK program
· Why PEO implemented it for the public, the regulator and PEO licence holders
· The parts of the program
· Completing the PEAK program is quick and easy
· Answers to your questions about the program
Parking is free and a map of the meeting location can be downloaded here.
Through the Professional Engineers Act, Professional Engineers Ontario governs licence and certificate holders and regulates professional engineering in Ontario to serve and protect the public.
It fulfills the same role for engineers as the College of Physicians and Surgeons for doctors or the Law Society of Upper Canada for lawyers.
