Technician/Technologist-in-Training (T.T.) Membership provides technical graduates with the resources necessary to advance their careers and work towards certification.

To qualify for T.T. membership applicants must: 

  • be graduates of a technical program within applied science, information or engineering/geoscience technology
  • have less than two years of technical work experience; and
  • work or be seeking work in Alberta or the Northwest Territories.

If working or seeking work outside of Alberta or the Northwest Territories, applicants should contact their provincial technology association to inquire about membership options.

The maximum term for T.T. membership is four years. T.T. members who require an extension may contact registration@aset.ab.ca.

Please note: ASET accepts only official electronic transcripts (eTranscripts). They can be sent directly from Canadian post-secondary institutions to registration@aset.ab.ca or via MyCreds®. You can share your verified and official transcript by purchasing a share credit on MyCreds and choosing the option of “Send my documents to a registered organization” and selecting “Association of Science and Engineering Professionals of Alberta (ASET)” from the list. We do not accept letters of completion or unofficial transcripts.

For all other credential assessment services (IQAS, ICAS, ICES, CES, and MIDI), please mail in your original official credential assessment to the ASET office.

World Education Services (WES) Credential Assessment: ASET will accept the electronic submission of a completed assessment through WES’s secure online delivery system, thus reducing the need to mail it. See here for more information if you have already completed a WES assessment (not in progress). Please do not email the assessment to ASET personally; rather request it to be sent from WES directly in order for ASET to accept it officially.

In order to be eligible for T.T. membership, we need to verify that applicants have graduated or completed their program before we can process their application. Before submitting your official transcript, you must ensure that it clearly states your graduation date or date of completion so that we can confirm that you are eligible for T.T. membership

Competency Summary

T.T. members are encouraged to download the competency summary in their discipline of practice and begin tracking relevant work experience. This preparation provides T.T. members with a comprehensive experience record for their future certification application.

The competency summary is one of the key application components for certification. It is a point-form description of an applicant’s work experience in relation to six key competencies. 

Instructions for completing the report are included within the document and a sample summary is available for review.
