To register as a Geologist-in-training

If you do not have three years of experience after graduation, you may register as a Geologist-in-training using Form J under one of the two following procedures on stated conditions:

  1. You hold an accredited Québec geology degree; use option J-1 with the required supporting documents.
  2. You hold another degree or other training; use option J-2 or J-3 with the required supporting documents. You will also have to undergo an evaluation of equivalency. This may entail that additional forms are to be filled with additional fees.
  3.  You are a registered G.I.T. in a Canadian Association of Professional Geoscientists  : use form J with the required supporting documents (as for J1 or J3). OGQ admits GIT transfers. Conditions may apply.
