Continuing Professional Development Policy
The public and government expect that technology professionals will continue to operate at an established high level of knowledge and expertise. In the interests of protecting public health and safety, the environment and economy, it is essential that technology professionals engage in lifelong learning. The ASTT Act and the Code of Ethics already imposes on registrants a duty to consistently pursue such self-directed Continuing Professional Development (CPD) as may be required to ensure their continuing competence.
Professional technologists, technicians and technical specialists are accountable to the public and their profession. As a professional regulatory body ASTTBC is required to assure the public that members continue to meet the high standards set for registration and the CPD Program provides a guide for members as they consider their continuing education needs
ASTTBC' CAREER MANAGER can be used by members to set goals and record achievements, or members can choose to record their CPD activities on a new web-based system.
