How many hours of work experience is required when it says, for example, "one year" or "two years?"

Work experience is based on full-time employment. Full-time employment is considered to be a 5-day work week with 35-40 hours per week, excluding overtime. Acceptable part-time (no fewer than 20 hours per week) experience will be considered on the basis of one week of experience for every two weeks worked.

Part-time experience requires supporting documentation that indicates the number of hours worked each week throughout the entire duration. Supporting documentation may include:

  • Time cards
  • Billing reports
  • Excel spreadsheets, etc. 

 An average of  part-time  work will not be accepted.
