How to apply for reinstatement?
Non-practising, retired, and former registrants who wish to become practising registrants of ASTTBC again are required to apply for reinstatement.
Reinstatement requirements include proof of completion of all continuing professional development requirements under Part VI of ASTTBC Bylaws as if the applicant had not ceased to be registered, and evidence satisfactory to the credentials committee that the applicant is a person of good character consistent with the responsibilities and standards expected of a registrant.
Additional information may be required depending on how much time has passed since the applicant last held practising registration with ASTTBC. That information is set out in sections 48.1, 48.2 and 48.3 of the Bylaws. Registrants whose registration was cancelled for disciplinary reasons are subject to additional requirements for reinstatement. These requirements are set out in section 49 of the Bylaws.
Applicants may use their existing TRC account to create a new application for reinstatement when possible. For those who submitted their initial application for registration in hard copy, a new TRC account may be created.
How to apply for reclassification?
A practising registrant may apply for reclassification of their class, sub-class and/or discipline. For instance, a CTech may apply for reclassification to AScT, a CSO may apply for reclassification to RCSO, or a CHI may apply for reclassification to CPI. A registrant seeking to reclassify into another class, sub-class and/or discipline must meet the educational and experiential requirements set out in Schedule A of ASTTBC Bylaws and submit an application with the information specified in Section 36 of the Bylaws.
A technologist (AScT) or technician (CTech) who wishes to apply to become a Registered Technical Specialist (RTS), or an RTS who wishes to apply to become an AScT or CTech, must make a new application for registration.
Applicants may use their existing TRC account to create a new application for reclassification when possible. For those who submitted their initial application for registration in hard copy, a new TRC account may be created.
How to add an endorsement?
A practising registrant may apply for the addition of an endorsement(s) to their registration. For instance, ROWP or RFPT may apply for additional endorsements to their current registration. A registrant seeking to add an endorsement(s) of registration must meet the educational and experiential requirements set out in Schedule A of ASTTBC Bylaws and submit an application with the information specified in Section 36 of the Bylaws.
Applicants may use their existing TRC account to create a new application for adding an endorsement(s) when possible. For those who submitted their initial application for registration in hard copy, a new TRC account may be created.
