Application Process

NOTE: Due to the global pandemic of COVID-19, we understand that it may be difficult to obtain and mail in your official transcripts. If that is the case, you can submit your unofficial transcript to ASET via email at registration@aset.ab.ca after you have completed the online application. It must clearly state on your transcript (unofficial or official) your graduation date or date of program completion so that we can confirm that you are eligible for T.T. membership.

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.

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.
