The Council of the Association of Professional Engineers of Nova Scotia created a formal Mentor Program through
By-Law 13(A) in 1983. Through the program, an Engineer-in-Training (EIT) is required to establish a relationship
with a mentor approved by Engineers Nova Scotia. The mentor assists the EIT in gaining the experience needed
to qualify as a professional engineer. The mentor monitors the EIT's progress, assesses their experience, and provides
regular feedback to both the EIT and Engineers Nova Scotia during this training period. The mentor also becomes
the liaison between the EIT and the Board of Examiners.
