Each year registrants are required to complete a minimum of two hours of training or activity on the topic of Indigenous Awareness.

While Indigenous Awareness CPD is mandatory for all practising registrants, ASTTBC recognizes that taking the course may cause hardship for Indigenous registrants and requests for accommodation should be sent to Jason Jung, director, professional practice & development at jjung@asttbc.org.

About Indigenous awareness training

Cultural awareness and reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples in BC are required among regulatory bodies as part of their mandatory continuing education programs.

By learning about Indigenous Peoples, registrants will create greater understanding and enhance communications between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and help build more trusting and respectful relationships, communities and employment opportunities.
