Liability & Insurance
When it’s YOUR professional integrity that is on the line, why risk it?
Issues arising from professional liability are of great concern today, both for you as a technologist or technician and for your clients where you act as a consultant. Don’t gamble your assets and reputation just because you feel you don’t need coverage. Professional liability insurance can reduce your risk!
ASTTBC’s Professional Liability Insurance Program provides exclusive coverage designed specifically to meet the needs of both self-employed and employed technologists and technicians.
Council Policy for Access to Insurance Plan Coverage
Members who seek coverage under the ASTTBC Liability Insurance Plan who are offering, directly to the public, services normal to a technical specialist discipline, in which ASTTBC certifies and registers, must be certified in the appropriate discipline by ASTTBC before such coverage is granted.

Managing Your Risk Takes Teamwork!
You need to understand the risks you are potentially exposed to as a professional and take the appropriate steps to manage that risk.
When you purchase professional liability insurance, you need to deal with a broker who understands your business and know that the insurance you are getting is underwritten by a leader in errors and omissions insurance.
