ASTTBC recognizes continuing professional development courses from both private and public training institutions. As a registrant, you are encouraged to explore and complete courses that enhance your technical knowledge, competencies, and general knowledge around professional practice and conduct. This includes but is not limited to, project management, communications, and report writing.

Registrants are reminded that a formal course must contain a test or quiz to be included under the Courses activity for ASTTBC’s CPD program. Registrants choosing to audit a course (no quiz or test completed at the end) can do so under the Technical Training activity of ASTTBC’s CPD program.

The materials featured on this page provide a representative sample of available training resources and should not be considered an endorsement or preference of any specific training provider or organization. The information provided is intended to be informative, and we encourage registrants to conduct their own research and evaluation to determine the most appropriate training resources for their needs.
