ASET Spring 2020 - 40

2019: Milestone year for Technology Accreditation Canada
2019 was a milestone year for Technology Accreditation
Canada (TAC) as the first accredited program, the Electrical Engineering Technology program at Georgian College,
successfully renewed its accreditation. An additional 15 engineering technology and applied science programs were
accredited, bringing the total number of TAC accredited
programs to 70.
The Standards Development Steering Committee's work on
key issues related to the profession's collection of national
standards concluded with the Standards Council's approval
of all recommendations contained in the Committee's report. This event paves the way for stakeholder public review
and comment on the proposed solutions.
The year culminated with an agreement with Canadian Council
of Technicians and Technologists to integrate the operations
of the Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB). As a
result, TAC became the sole national accrediting body, adding
92 CTAB accredited programs. Further to this development,
TAC admitted five new members, the provincial certifying
bodies in Manitoba (Council of Technicians and Technologists
of Manitoba), Prince Edward Island (Island Technology Professionals), New Brunswick (New Brunswick Society of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists/Société des
techniciens et des technologues agréés du génie du Nouveau
Brunswick), Newfoundland and Labrador (The Association of
Engineering Technicians and Technologists of Newfoundland
and Labrador) and Nova Scotia (TechNova).

"The integration of the CTAB programs
is a significant achievement that caps
five years of steady growth, not only in
numbers of programs accredited and
auditors trained and deployed, but in our
accreditation program's excellence and
credibility overall," commented Peter
Portlock, TAC Board of Directors Chair
"This important development best
serves the interests of the engineering
technology and applied science
profession in general and students
in particular."


Additional accomplishments and progress realized in
TAC's fifth year of operation are highlighted in the  2019
Annual Report.
Accreditation is recognized worldwide as an objective
method of assessment and a valuable tool to identify program strengths and challenges. This independent seal
of approval represents excellence in education and the
high standards of the profession graduates will be joining.
Achieving accreditation provides students, parents and the
institution's administration confidence that the program has
met defined standards.
