Professional Practice and Ethics

Technicians and technologists play a vital role in Canada's modern society.  They are skilled professionals who help ensure that the country's technology-based systems and infrastructure are properly designed, manufactured, tested and maintained.

Above all, technicians and technologists in Canada are expected to put the safety and well-being of the public ahead of all other interests. They must be guided in all aspects of their work by a Code of Ethics.

Applicants for certification are expected to have carefully read and to fully understand the Code of Ethics for the provincial association to which they are applying. You will be asked during the application process to confirm that you have completed this important step.

In addition, you will later be required to pass a Professional Practice and Ethics exam as part of becoming registered as a Technology Professional.
