Hi All,
The NOC that best matches my job duties is NOC 2131-Civil Engineers. My job title is Engineer, Roadways and Transportation. However, I am not sure if I should apply under NOC 2131 because I'm not a P.Eng yet. I got my engineering degree in Canada and im registered as an Engineer in Training with APEGS.
I talked to an immigration consultant and she told me that I should use NOC 2231- Civil technologists and technicians instead, because I do not have my P.Eng designation. I was told my application will get refused if I apply as a "Civil engineer" when I do not have my P.Eng licence yet. Is this true?
Has anyone faced the same dilemma?

You do not need to have a P..Eng to use that NOC. I am still an EIT and I used NOC 2141.

Thanks for your response, I have additional questions
Did you get your PR?
I was thinking to upload my engineering degree and mi EIT certificate in the same pdf file, would that be enough?
Do I need to mention somewhere that my direct supervisor is a P.Eng?

i am still awaiting for PR. However, my eligibility has been passed.
You need to upload your engineering degree under Education. EIT certificate is not necessary. Neither do you need to mention that your supervisor is a P.Eng.

You just need to make sure that the job letter has duties that match the list of responsibilities/duties under your claimed NOC.

Does your job title mention that you are an EIT ( i.e Industrial Engineer in Training)?
According to the National Occupational Classification : Licensing by a provincial or territorial association of professional engineers is required to approve engineering drawings and reports and to practice as a Professional Engineer (P.Eng.)
Since I am not stating in my letter that I "approve drawings" or that I hold P.eng licence, I think I am safe, right?
