Serving the Public Interest
ASET is committed to protecting the public interest and to excellence in professional practice.
ASET credentials that show that a member has met the strict national criteria for certification in their field. Under the Engineering and Geosciences Professions Act, ASET members are also accountable for public safety under the law.
As a self-regulating professional association, ASET ensures public safety with a responsibility to guarantee the qualifications of those holding ASET titles and protect against title misuse, and the ability to exercise disciplinary and legal action to ensure competence of ASET members.
If you have a concern about the conduct, behaviour or practice of an ASET member, please do not hesitate to contact us or to file a complaint.
Although the provincial government remains ultimately responsible for public safety and well-being, it entrusts this responsibility to professional self-regulatory associations such as ASET.
ASET’s ongoing commitment to protecting the public interest is evident in our activities which include:
- providing certification to qualified Members
- providing accreditation of technology programs at institutes and colleges in Alberta
- administering a complaint and discipline process
- promoting professional development
