Professional competencies

Professional competencies are skills, knowledge and attributes that are specifically valued by the professional associations, organizations and bodies connected to your future career.

For example, if you want to become an engineer, you'll need to demonstrate certain competencies to meet the standards of Engineers Canada, a national organization that regulates the practice of engineering in Canada.

To learn about professional competencies for your future profession, connect with professional associations related to your future career path.
