Practice Guidelines

As part of ASTTBC’s continuous improvement efforts, the ASTTBC Council has concluded that there is room for improvement to these Guidelines and is currently adjusting the Guides in a manner that will maintain the integrity of ASTTBC’s mandate and responsibilities and also address some concerns raised by APEGBC.

For example, the ASTTBC-APEGBC Joint Board worked on a revision of the ASTTBC Electrical Practice Guide, ultimately endorsing and recommending approval by the respective association’s Council. As a result of receiving approval, other guides beginning with those related to Building Projects, are currently being contemplated for changes using the approved Electrical Guide as a template.

Updates on the status of those guides will be posted to this page as appropriate.

In the meantime ASTTBC members should only undertake that work for which they have competency and that is permitted in law. If you have questions on the Guides please contact Jason Jung, AScT at 604.585.2788 extension 224 or email
