ASET Technology Alberta Spring 2024 - 21

election
FOR FIRST VICE-PRESIDENT
Terry Mueller
P.Tech.(Eng.), P.L.Eng., IWT
TERRY MUELLER brings over 30 years of experience
working in the technology sector to ASET.
Born and raised in Western Canada, Terry is bilingual in German
and English. After receiving his engineering technology
diploma from SAIT in 1992, Terry continued developing his
practical skills and professional knowledge. He began as a
laboratory tech and progressed as an SME with a large organization.
Both
continual professional development and involvement
with voluntary service are essential to Terry. This is
clear from the certifications he holds, such as P.Tech.(Eng.)
with ASET, PTech with ASTTBC, engineering licensee with
APEGS, welding engineer with the Canadian Welding Bureau,
P.L. (Eng.) with APEGA, and international welding engineering
technologist status with the International Institute
of Welding. In addition to being a father and a car enthusiast,
Terry has also been involved on multiple boards and committees
over the years, including:
* Alberta Welding Optimization Committee
* previous co-chairman for welding at the Canadian
Energy Pipeline Association
* chairman of the SAE Historical Technical Vehicle
Committee
* ASME Section IX - Research Development Group
* ASET/APEGA Joint Board of Examiners P.Tech.(Eng.)
selection committee for 10 years
* AWS B2 Committee (Welding Procedures)
As the first vice-president, Terry plans to reciprocate the
support ASET provided to him as a technologist. Specifically,
Terry would like to protect the technologist title from
being misused and misrepresented in the field by those
without the proper training, education and certification.
" I set myself a mandate that if selected as the first vice-president
of the ASET Council, I will work to promote technologists
to allow them a greater scope of practice so that they can
perform the functions that they are trained for, " he says.
" If selected, I will ensure that the members see their investment
in ASET, one that will pay dividends now and in the future. "
When someone earns a C.E.T. or a P.Tech.(Eng.), it gives society
the level of confidence that the person has the adequate
training and proper education to make sound engineering
decisions. This statement is paramount, Terry affirms, as it
is our job as a society always to protect the public interest.
The technologist's title is as important as an engineer's and
should be treated as such.
A protected and distinguished title would further advocate
for technologists to independently sign off on documentation
required by law federally, provincially, and jurisdictionally.
Terry urges others in the field: " We need our voices to
be heard. We have the education and expertise to sign off
documentation to protect public safety. There have been
strides in allowing us to grant function, but more work must
be completed. " As the first vice-president, Terry is excited to
be doing this work with the members of ASET.
" I humbly accept the nomination for the position of first
vice-president at ASET. ASET has invested in my professional
development, and I want to repay them for their efforts, "
Terry says.
There has been a growing trend in the Province of Alberta to
increase the diversification of the technological workplace,
Terry has noticed.
" The days of being just an oil and gas-producing province
are going by the wayside, and rightfully so. We need to ensure
that all technologists graduating from accredited programs
will meet or exceed engineering professionals' future
demands. ASET allows our colleagues certification and
direction to become an integral part of the ever-changing
labour landscape, " Terry explains.
