Individuals with a technical education and related working experience who are interested in working as a technology professional or those who are already working in their technical field in British Columbia are encouraged to apply to ASTTBC for certification as a technologist, technician or technical specialist. As someone studying this Professional Practice and Ethics Manual you are one of these individuals.
By obtaining a professional credential, an individual demonstrates to employers that they have met Canadian national educational and experiential standards. An employer can, in turn, depend on ASTTBC to have verified the individual’s education and the value of their working experience.
ASTTBC offers various membership classifications, each with its own professional designation. These are described on the ASTTBC web site.
