You can perform a useful self-evaluation of your educational credentials at the Technologist or Technician level by comparing your educational outcomes with those published for your discipline(s) under the National Technology Benchmarks (NTB). This collection of “Outcomes” and the accompanying possible prerequisite topics (‘Elements of Performance, Such As...’), reflects the profession’s view of the topics covered by technology education programs in Canada, to both the Certificate and Diploma of Technology levels. Graduates of programs accredited by the CTAB to these benchmarks will have a minimum of five (5) of the Outcomes from any of the disciplines or combination of disciplines. In addition, Technologists will have had to demonstrate a clear and proven ability to research and write comprehensive technical reports, as explained in the National Technology Benchmarks (NTB).
