Competency Assessment & Development

Competency Assessment & Development

Internationally educated applicants are assessed based on a Competency Assessment and Development plan. The policy is applied on an individual basis and is part of the application and registration process. Agrologists Manitoba will discuss a Competency and Development plan with you after all application documents are received and your academic credentials are assessed.

Policy options include:

  1. If you are employed in an agrology job, or in the agriculture or environment sector in Manitoba/Canada, you may be able to fully complete the application for registration process, become registered to practice agrology as an Agrologist-in-Training, and initiate the Competency Assessment and Development plan at the same time.
  2. If you are not employed in an agrology job, or in the agriculture or environment sector in Manitoba/Canada, the following steps will apply:
  • Assess your academic credentials
  • Fill and submit the Information Questions
  • If your application demonstrates that you are eligible to register as an Agrologist-in-Training, you will be considered a student–for registration purposes only
  • Identify required competencies
  • Identify one or more competency requirement reduction pathways based on assessment of credentials, work experience and area of practice
  • Address and communicate competency requirements
  • Once you successfully completed Competency Assessment and Development, you will be eligible to register as an Agrologist-in-Training.

The Internationally Educated Agrologist Program (IEAP) – Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Agrology is not currently available. The program was offered by the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences at the University of Manitoba.
