The health and safety of our employees, registrants and volunteers remains paramount as we continue to follow the guidance of our public health officials.

ASTTBC has been diligent and I am proud to share that as of June 15, 2020, the ASTTBC office will reopen. This reopening will be gradual and with implemented safety measures to minimize the spread of COVID-19. To limit the number of people onsite, staff will be working both remotely and at the office, and visitors will be by appointment only. All those onsite are required to practice physical distancing.

Since March, ASTTBC has taken every necessary precaution to ensure our organization, and those behind it, remained informed, educated and proactively responsible for their own safety, and those around them. I am encouraged by the resiliency and innovation I have witnessed and have no doubt that the same energy will be present as we navigate through the months ahead.

As we resume operations, ASTTBC staff can be reached by phone or email. Please note that all challenge exams are postponed and an update will be provided in the coming weeks.

Thank you for your patience and support as we do our best to continue to protect the public and promote the critical role of technology professionals in our economy and community.
