ASET removing barriers for skilled refugees
An Alberta association is removing barriers for refugees skilled in the field of engineering technology. The Association of Science and Engineering Technology Professionals of Alberta recently launched a new initiative for refugees wishing to attain engineering technology accreditation in Canada, which reduces their financial burden by up to $1,000. The initiative exists in conjunction with ASET’s competency-based assessment program. Introduced in 2016, the program helps refugees and other newcomers to Canada with engineering technology experience fast-track their careers by assessing current skills and determining a Canadian certification equivalent.
