ASET Technology Alberta Winter 2023 - 12

Message from
the Registrar
Melanie Leaf
IN HER MEMBER SPOTLIGHT, C.E.T. Teresa Mardon
referred to science and engineering technology professionals,
and ASET members in particular, as " worker bees. "
They're the ones who get things done, make things work,
and keep them working. That's a great description, and one
we at Registration and Practice aim to embody. We continue
to build up the combs of this association, so new and current
members can enjoy the fruits (or honey) of our labours.
You help us in that effort in multiple ways. One of those is
your constant compliance in filling out your CPD activities.
The CPD audit for the 2022 audit year is nearing completion,
with the deadline of 31 December quickly approaching.
Currently, 84 per cent of audited C.Tech., C.E.T., and R.E.T.
members... and 99 per cent (!) of audited P.Tech. members
have completed the CPD audit requirements for 2022. The
higher the compliance rate, the louder our message rings
that ASET members hold their work and ethics to the highest
standard.
If you were selected for the CPD audit and you haven't yet
completed it, there's still time. It is important to note that as
the 2024 annual dues have now been issued, you will not
receive your annual dues notice until your CPD has been
competed. To meet the CPD requirements, a minimum of
two activities must be entered (each from a different CPD
category as outlined below):
* Formal Activities - such as structured courses,
seminars, or any technical training.
* Informal Activities - such as workshops, on-the-job
training, or learning a technical application.
* Peer and Professional Interaction - such as
mentoring or being mentored, demonstrating technical
applications to colleagues, or professional activities in
the community.
* Contributions to the Profession - such as presenting
research, or volunteering.
As another friendly reminder, the deadline to pay your dues
is 31 December 2023. Reduced dues and exemption from
CPD requirements are available to those members who are
retiring from active practice in the profession or who are
on temporary unemployment/leave. To update your status,
please apply online (in your member portal) during the annual
dues renewal process.
Circling back to what we at Registration are doing, we keep
building the walls of the hive. With the continued expansion
of the certification exam program, Architectural Technology
was selected for exam development in 2023. It is currently
being finalized and will be ready for implementation in January
2024.
That expansion extends to our work developing competency
profiles for the 21 disciplines. Materials Engineering
Technology and Geoscience Technology were selected for
competency profile development in 2023. They too are in
the final stages of development, launching in January 2024.
This work of developing the competency profiles and certification
exams will carry into next year. The scheduled competency
profiles are Industrial Technology and Bioscience
Technology. In addition, a certification exam in Environmental
Technology is scheduled for development next year. So,
if you are in any of those three disciplines, be on the lookout
for available volunteer positions throughout 2024.
As always, we thank you this year for the shining example
you set as the best professionals in this province. You take
us forward. You build the hive. The whole team in the Registration
and Practice department will do our utmost to
strengthen the walls where it counts.
