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.
