ASET Technology Alberta Summer 2019 - 10

MESSAGE FROM THE REGISTR AR

A Look at New-Member Trends
Jennifer Bertrand
Technology professionals, employers, and post-secondary
institutions have faced a number of challenges over the last
few years, especially in relation to economic and political
changes in Alberta. Reviewing applicant and member demographics, we were interested to see if these changes
have had an impact on the disciplines of our members, applicants, and graduates. The statistics from 2015 to 2019
demonstrate a relatively stable picture with a limited number of fluctuations in areas of practice.

As a long-time supporter of ASET membership, Alberta
Health Services has encouraged its Biomedical Engineering
Technologists to obtain C.E.T., which has directly contributed to the growth in this discipline. Surprisingly, new members in Petroleum Engineering Technology doubled to 12%
in 2019. This may be a signal of a more competitive sector in
which certification provides an edge to those seeking employment or advancement.

The disciplines of new members have remained relatively
stable, although we see some variation over the last five
years in the following disciplines (data expressed as a percentage of total):
