Finally, for C.E.T. applicants needing to verify their educational credentials, we continue to add to our list of disciplinespecific certification exams. This process is of particular
value to the growing number of internationally-educated
professionals who see in ASET an opportunity to launch
their Canadian careers. This is a costly, time-consuming
undertaking, but one we are committed to completing in the
interests of fairness. We aim to offer the most comprehensive, relevant and robust certification possible.

A: What has been the biggest challenge or
learning curve as you've stepped into the role?
ML: I stepped into the role as Acting Registrar shortly before COVID-19, so the biggest challenge was learning the

A: Last question. Are there any messages that

through the free monthly webinars that also count

Your membership also gives you access to the ASET
Career Centre, where key employers post jobs

A: What do you enjoy the most about the role?
ML: I really enjoy team building and providing the opportunity for my staff to grow and develop. I am also a bit of
a policy nerd and I really enjoy finding ways we can refine
processes while ensuring we are following our mandate. My
team has been instrumental in brainstorming ideas on how

A: How important is that idea of helping future
members and evolving to you?
ML: Very important. We live in a constantly changing environment, as do our members. We want to ensure that we
