The Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) is available to applicants seeking registration with ASET who have not graduated from an applied science, engineering or information technology program. It is also available for applicants who are unable to produce academic transcripts. The assessment demonstrates equivalency to the academic requirements of the C.Tech. designation. Disciplines of interest include:
- Information Technology
Volunteers must be C.Tech., C.E.T., R.E.T., or P.Tech. members in good standing, with a minimum of five years of professional experience. Successful applicants must have no current open complaints of unprofessional or unskilled practice and no past discipline decisions from ASET or another professional regulatory body.
