ASET Technology Alberta Winter 2019 - 11

MESSAGE FROM THE REGISTR AR

Message from
the Registrar
Jennifer Bertrand
Over the past 56 years, ASET and its members have built the
technology profession in Alberta by continually refining the
standards and processes for certification. Our existing requirements are robust, relevant, and fair, and ensure that industry,
government, and the public have confidence in the competence
and professionalism of those technicians and technologists
who obtain an ASET designation.
As part of this commitment to continual improvement, in 2010
the ASET Council established a Fair Registration Practices
Committee to review annually the registration process with a focus on transparency, objectivity, impartiality, and fairness. This
constant self-asssessment has led to some of ASET's most
exciting developments, including an internationally-recognized
competency-based assessment model.

ASET's progressive vision continues to yield positive results
and garner attention at the highest levels. Of note is an invitation ASET's Registrar received to attend a June 19, 2019, roundtable with Jason Kenney during which the Premier announced
passage of Bill 11, the Fair Registration Practices Act. ASET was
one of only two regulatory bodies present at the announcement,
which emphasises the respect with which the Government of
Alberta views our continual self-improvement. As a result of
ASET's initiatives, our Registration and Practice department is
fully ready to meet the new legislative reporting requirements
laid out in Bill 11, and we will continue to be recognized by the
Province as an example against which other organisations can
measure their own certification requirements and processes.

The 2019 review process resulted in our launching one of
ASET's most forward-thinking regulatory activities to date: We
have recently published a groundbreaking new statement on
discrimination and bias on the ASET website, and developed a
new training module for all staff and volunteers involved in certification and registration functions. These changes further refine our commitment to fair practices beyond what were already
industry-leading levels.

ASET's Statement on Discrimination and Bias
ASET does not and shall not discriminate on the basis
of race, religious beliefs, colour, gender, gender identity,
gender expression, physical disability, mental disability,
age, ancestry, place of origin, marital status, source of
income, family status, or sexual orientation[1] in any of its
activities or operations. We are committed to providing an
inclusive and welcoming environment for our applicants,
members, volunteers, staff, and vendors. In relation to
the application process for registration and the regulation
of registered members, ASET ensures its policies and
processes are transparent, objective, impartial, and fair.
ASET also ensures that staff and volunteers involved in
application or regulatory activities receive anti-bias and
anti-discrimination training.
