1- Presentation subject: PEO Process-ERC Interview by Faiz Hammadi, P. Eng., FEC

The intention of this presentation is to help the interested newcomer Iraqi engineers to have an accurate and clear understanding of the sequence of licensing process, the interview in particular and also, based on Faiz’s experience with ERC, to provide many observations and tips that would be very helpful for the PEO applicants to be prepared for the interview.
