INTERNATIONAL APPLICANT Directions
Before applying for certification, you can perform a useful self-evaluation of your educational credentials at the Technologist or Technician level by comparing your educational outcomes with those published for your discipline(s) under the National Technology Benchmarks (NTB).
This collection of “Outcomes” and the accompanying possible prerequisite topics (‘Elements of Performance, Such As…’), reflects the profession’s view of the topics covered by technology education programs in Canada, to both the Certificate and Diploma of Technology levels. The one year of Canadian work experience would also have to be at the appropriate level of certification and supported by appropriate references. Council may also stipulate that International Applicants be required to complete professional development in career orientation or pass a language competency test.
