How much does it cost? And what are the ongoing costs?

APEA is a non-profit, member-owned professional association. We exist to improve the professional lives of our members, and continuously strive to meet their expectations.

The RPEng assessment scheme is no exception. To meet the expectations of the membership, the program is administered on a cost-recovery basis, ensuring that members pay the lowest fee, without compromising the quality of the scheme.
