In reading out the citation at the ASTTBC Awards Celebration, ASTTBC CEO John Leech, AScT, CAE, indicated that ASTTBC has never before granted Honourary Membership to a sitting Member of the Legislature. "ASTTBC takes great care when awarding Honourary Membership," said Leech, "in this case Ralph is an ideal candidate, demonstrating exemplary leadership on many fronts, including as an MLA. But for ASTTBC, as a professional regulatory body, we must exercise caution when recognizing sitting members of Government. In this case the Association made an exception given that Ralph is a PEng and has actively supported initiatives that better serve the engineering and technology community and more broadly the public."
Ralph was elected MLA in West Vancouver-Capilano in 2001, and he is now serving his fourth term of office. Currently on the Legislative Review committee, Ralph has held the post of Minister of Advanced Education, Innovation and Technology, and Minister of State for Seniors, and served on numerous Economic Committees.
In his youth Ralph worked as a tree faller, a hydro lineman and as a surveyor's helper in the North and Central BC. Ralph has been registered as a Professional Engineer since 1957, in Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia. After graduating in engineering from UBC he spent two years in technical sales, before attending Harvard University. In 15 years at Harvard, Ralph earned three degrees - then joined the faculty as Associate Professor in the Business School.
In his next professional incarnation, Ralph spent a decade as Chief Economist of The Royal Bank of Canada, before joining Global Energy and Minerals Group in Calgary as Senior Vice President. Recruited into Anglo American's Hudbay mining subsidiary as Executive Vice President, Ralph spent two decades in the mining and financial industries in the Eastern Canada, Yukon, and British Columbia.
ASTTBC President, Dave Rutherford, in a brief interview early this year stated, "Ralph has made a significant contribution throughout his career and in his service to the public. I am pleased ASTTBC Council agreed to support the recommendation of Honourary Membership for Ralph."
The Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of BC (APEGBC) has published a position paper on climate change as it relates to the practice of professional engineering and geoscience.
APEGBC recognizes that the climate is changing and commits to raising awareness about the potential impacts as they relate to the practice of engineering and geoscience, and to providing information and assistance to members in managing implications for their own professional practice.

The new slogan that will headline ASTTBC's efforts to promote technology education and careers, 'TECHNOLOGY SIZZLES', has been loaded onto an apron with the tag line 'Get Cooking with ASTTBC'.
Launched at the ASTTBC Technology Awards and Recognition Celebration 2013, the logo and aprons will be highly visible in 2014 and the next few years. At the ASTTBC Council meeting on January 30, 2014, members of Council donned the aprons for a photograph. Joining ASTTBC Council was John Clague, PGeo, Vice President of APEGBC.
National Engineering and Geoscience Month (NEGM) is an annual celebration of engineering and geoscience across Canada. As ASTTBC technologists, technicians and technical specialists are a vital part of BC's engineering teams, ASTTBC and it's over 10,000 members join APEGBC in showcasing the application of engineering and geoscience and their contribution to BC's economy.
This month-long event promotes awareness of the engineering, geoscience and technology professions, highlights career choices in these fields, and reminds the public of the many ways in which engineering and geoscience touch everyday life.
"Today's youth are already immersed in technology daily using computers, smart phones, robotics and games," said ASTTBC CEO John Leech, AScT, CAE. "Through NEGM we hope students and their parents and teachers realize they can build great careers using and advancing technology, within engineering, geoscience and technology teams."

Survey shows American engineers' salaries increased in 2013
There is good news on the employment front for engineers in the United States: salaries for engineers are rising amid the growing global demand for technology services across industry sectors, particularly healthcare and energy.
According to the latest Engineering Income and Salary Survey conducted by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the average total annual income for engineers in 2013, including bonuses, was $104,303, nearly 0.8% higher than the previous year and almost 4.5% more than the $99,738 salary figure reported in 2011.
"Salaries for engineers have increased at a time when other professions have struggled through challenging economic conditions," said Madiha El Mehelmy Kotb, president of ASME. "The demand for engineers continues to grow, and many stimulating job opportunities are emerging."
Many of these job opportunities, according to the salary survey, are in the ocean engineering and petroleum fields, where the median income in 2013 was, respectively, $137,763 and $130,000. Other sectors showing good salaries include computer services ($124,000), nuclear energy ($119,000), and fire protection ($123,000).
3 contracts have been signed between the BC Government and ASTTBC in support of Internationally Trained Technology Professionals (ITTPs).
Three initiatives completed in 2013 include:
1. Working in BC
This initiative projects forward work completed in 2013 where ASTTBC consulted with 85 employers in BC on their interest and needs as it relates to ITTPs. Two key outcomes: (a) identification of 5 core competencies; and (b) the integration of a log book to help guide and track career development.
In 2014 ASTTBC will:
- finalize the log book and create an e-portfolio
- refine the core competencies and set up assessment methodologies
2. India Mutual Recognition Agreement - Phase 1
The purpose of this initiative, as with the Philippines project completed in 2012-2013, is to complete an on-site visit to India to fully assess / evaluate education and training, and, with favourable circumstance, to sign a Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) on education standards. ASTTBC will build on the work of Ontario Association (OACETT) when they and others visited India in 2012.
For this contract we will:
- establish contacts in India
- frame visitation purposes and planned outcomes
- define the schedule and detail the visitation schedule
The Second Phase will follow and include the visitation, assessment of education and training and signing of a MRA.
3. Foreign Credential Recognition Database
This project promises the development of a new database that will house ASTTBC assessment of foreign credential for the top ten (10) countries from which immigrants come to BC / Canada.
ASTTBC will work with other professional associations in Canada to validate, to the extent possible, all entries. Likewise ASTTBC will consult with other associations on the development of the database software. This project will dovetail with a contract between ASTTBC and Economic and Social Development Canada (formerly HRSDC) in which ASTTBC will develop a management protocol for a foreign credential database (IQDB) and validate program assessment note capture within the BC Government -ASTTBC contract. While not a deliverable of the contract, ASTTBC intends to move methodically toward a publicly accessible web site on which information is posted on the education offered in other countries and our assessment of the credential.
In all elements of this project ASTTBC commits to:
- open access to the Registrars and others as appropriate in the technology professional associations in Canada
- changes to the database will be based on an agreed management protocol and, only after appropriate Qualify Assurance measures are satisfied, to introduce changes to the database
The desired outcome is a database of foreign credentials that is managed effectively based on an accepted management protocol and that will be relied upon by the technology professional associations in Canada. Uniform assessment of ITTP credentials will be enhanced and portability of professional credentials in Canada will be reinforced.

Tim Murphy, AScT, Senior Transportation Project Manager for Delcan Corporation, gave a presentation to 39 Transportation Engineers and Planners from the Vancouver Chapter of the Institute of Transportation Engineers on February 13th. Tim led the design and implementation of the first Turbo Roundabout installed in Canada at the Victoria International Airport, and the presentation was about the technology's broader application in Canada.
"The Turbo Roundabout was invented in the Netherlands and has a better road safety performance than standard multilane roundabouts, "says Tim. "With some adaption the Turbo Roundabout technology can be successfully applied in Canada."
This project has influenced the development of national design guides at the Transportation Association of Canada to include Turbo Roundabouts.

A Canadian college has agreed to participate in a pilot project for Technology Accreditation Canada (TAC), a new organization established by Technology Professionals Canada (TPC). TPC is a partnership of provincial technology associations in British Columbia (ASTTBC), Alberta (ASET), Ontario (OACETT) and Saskatchewan (SASTT) which together represent approximately 85 per cent of the technology profession in Canada.
TAC is excited to be moving ahead with this important next step in the advancement of a world class national accreditation model for the technology profession.
"We are looking forward to working with this college on the pilot project. The college will submit the required paperwork in the spring and our first inspection visit is expected this summer when we will meet with key college personnel as well as graduating students, alumni and industry advisors," said Barbara Chappell, TAC Executive Director.
In the meantime, TAC continues to raise awareness about the benefits that its enhanced national accreditation model will bring to the technology profession. A corporate logo has been created and a website is under development and expected to launch in February or March. The establishment of TAC by TPC was in direct response to findings made by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) after performing a comprehensive, independent review of technology accreditation practices that existed at the time measured against best practices from other jurisdictions and sectors.
TAC is committed to assuming a leadership position in the delivery of an improved, efficient and effective national accreditation model, using trained, specialized auditors, maintaining an uncompromising degree of quality control and assurance, and rigorously applying national technology standards.
ASTTBC is providing ongoing support to the InSPIRE Advisory Committee, a group of industry and sector representatives whose mandate is to assist with Skills Canada BC's trades and technology career exploration and information sessions at high schools throughout BC. A number of presentations were delivered at pilot schools/classes in the interior of BC and other Metro Vancouver Schools. Work on this portfolio is ongoing.
ASTTBC will assist by providing pertinent technology career path information for presentations and support documents to secondary students. The BC Government initiative is welcomed by ASTTBC as the Association has asked the Government to put in place a technology awareness scheme.
"This is a GREAT initiative," said ASTTBC CEO John Leech, AScT, CAE. "ASTTBC and the ASTTBC - appointed Technology Education and Careers Council has been advocating for a program that would excite young minds about technology and tech education and careers. The InSPIRE program should do the trick."
TECC Chair, Sid Siddiqui, PEng on learning of the InSPIRE initiative indicated that the model should help draw attention to technology education and careers as well as to the role of technologists, technicians and technical specialists. TECC has met each year with the BC Government Cabinet Ministers responsible for education, advanced education and jobs. In each of the meetings TECC spoke to industry's need for greater numbers of technology professionals.
ASTTBC Manager, Member and Program Development, Jason Jung, AscT, is ASTTBC's rep on the InSPIRE Group. Jason reports solid progress on the pilots and looks forward to further refinements to the program as the Group learns from the early experiences.
As a very general statement, in British Columbia unless you hold an Electrical Trade Qualification (TQ), are a registered apprentice, are being supervised by a TQ'd Electrician and working under a Permit, or have status as a Manufacturer's Representative, you may not perform Electrical Work*.
Now for suitably qualified and experienced Applied Science Technologists and Certified Technicians there is an option: Certification by ASTTBC and licensing by the British Columbia Safety Authority (BCSA) as an Electrical Work Practitioner (EWP). This allows you to legally perform that limited and specialized electrical work typical to those in the Electrical, Electronic and Bio-Medical Disciplines.
An EWP license is not, nor is it intended to be, a substitute for, or equivalent to, the permitted scope of work of a trade qualified electrician. It is designed to enable certain members of ASTTBC to perform the narrow scope of special work that is usual to their discipline. The program is quite similar to the Manitoba model. This and the BC development are being looked at very closely by other Provinces.
If you need more information than is provided through the links above please contact email@example.com
*Please contact BCSA for specific information and clarification if you are unsure of your position in regards to Electrical Work.
The ASTTBC Construction Safety Officer Certification Program has undergone a series of very significant changes over the past few months, all designed to dramatically "raise the bar". Some important features are:
- A completely redesigned CSO Certification Policy which is "Competency and Learning Outcome" based
- Certification will now be a three tiered process, starting with 'Provisional" CSO to full CSO and finally leading to "Registered" CSO
- Requirements for "on the job and in the role" experience have been raised to reflect the critical role a CSO plays in the construction environment
- Each category of designation requires strict adherence to the ASTTBC CPD Policy and all reclassifications will include an audit of the applicant's CPD record
As a direct result of these improvements, the hard work of the CSO Certification Board and the strong support of our accredited trainers, registrations increased almost 20% in 2013. The number of CSO Registrants is greater than ever before and we are receiving strong and vocal support for the changes from across industry and registrants. Many thanks go to members of the Construction Safety Certification Board (CSCB) for their diligence and professionalism in making this transition a reality.
The members of the CSCB are; Bruce Jackson CRSP (Chair), Joe Collins CSO (Vice Chair), Sam Livingston CSO, Erin Patrick Williams CSO, Jim Nicholson CSO, Barry Manfield CSO, George Scott (CSO Pending), Jim Hughes (CSO Pending). In addition, each of the ASTTBC Accredited CSO are represented, including; John Denis (BCIT), JF Landry (ER Plus Risk Management) and Leslie Norris (Care Institute of Safety).
In March of 2013, BCWiT Chair Sarah Campden facilitated a Women in Technology Peer Mentoring Group for the Women's Enterprise Centre. This group was designed specifically to help women entrepreneurs in the technology field address the issues and barriers they experience while making the transition to self-employment. These issues range from creating a balance between work life and personal life, to facing a steep learning curve while developing new business skills.
Since the group met in 2013, it has grown in scope. The members found their mentoring group so helpful and the support so meaningful, that they have continued to meet monthly to discuss their businesses and any challenges they may be facing. Having this informal "advisory board" has been infinitely helpful when facing roadblocks and decisions in their businesses. They have prepared a schedule of future topics to discuss such as marketing, goal setting, and proposition statements.
Having the support of each other, and the opportunity to learn and grow as business owners, has been invaluable to these ladies as entrepreneurs.

Announcing BC Common Ground Alliance (BCCGA) Best Practices Version 3.0 BC Common Ground Alliance has developed, through the commitment and consensus of its members, a manual of Best Practices. These practices represent a statement of the type of activities that BCCGA believes do provide optimum levels of diligence towards preventing damage to underground infrastructure. Not all stakeholders are presently in a position to adopt these practices, however, it is anticipated that progression will be made towards following the practices over time.
"Kudos to the BCCGA for their most recent work in releasing the Version 3 of their Best Practices Manual," says ASTTBC CEO John Leech, AScT, CAE. "Their leadership in this area has enhanced public and worker safety while ensuring the highest standard of practice is maintained in the ground disturbance industry."
Underground Utility Locating Certification Program Development Update
A collaboration between the BC Common Ground Alliance (BCCGA) and ASTTBC continues as the two organizations work towards the development of a certification program designed to recognize a practitioners' competencies and high standards of practice in Underground Utility Locating. It is highly anticipated that once available, this type of certification will bring an enhanced level of safety and assurances to industries which require verified underground utility locating. The BCCGA, in conjunction with its education partners, has already begun the process of delivering training to municipalities and individual practitioners to meet academic requirements related to the eventual ASTTBC certification. ASTTBC will continue to provide updates as the development of this program progresses.
Of the one million job openings ahead, 43 per cent will need trades and technical training. For more info on how student's can start early, how parents can get involved, employer tools and resources, or how to change your career, go the BC JOBS PLAN WEBSITE.

Uphold the principle of appropriate and adequate compensation for the performance of their work.
(a) Members should ensure that compensation is fair and appropriate for the services rendered, but are expected to put service above financial gain, quality above quantity and acknowledge a code of honour within a competitive spirit.
(b) Members should not undertake a contract for anything other than a firm price, and be cautious of contracts containing contingency fee clauses.
(c) Members should not submit any proposal to secure an engagement or assignment with a firm price or estimated cost lower than the realistic expected full estimated cost of the proposed engagement.
Member's fees shall be determined by the scope of work and level of service required. Cutting fees to the extent that results in the rendering of an incompetent or dangerous service is unethical. Contingency fee arrangements may cloud the judgment of the member dependent on the size of the fee, for example, zero in the case of an unsatisfactory conclusion or disproportionately high in other situations.
Offering services at less than cost as a 'loss leader' in order to secure future work is not recommended, particularly where the services might have an effect on the feasibility of future work. Potential clients should be made aware if a 'loss leader' type of service is offered, together with the future work expectation.
