Technicians and technologists in Canada are certified by provincial technology associations under a number of disciplines. The academic requirements for each discipline are defined by a set of national standards called the National Technology Benchmarks (NTBs), described on the next page.
Some provincial associations currently certify individuals under additional disciplines. With time these will be considered for inclusion in the National Technology Benchmarks.
This site allows for self-assessment and application under those disciplines currently included in the Benchmarks, as follows:
|Technician-level Disciplines||Technologist-level Disciplines|
|Architecture / Building||Architecture / Building|
|Mineral Resources||Renewable Resources|
|Petroleum||Survey / Geomatics|
|Survey / Geomatics|
All Canadian associations for technology professionals certify individuals to these standards.
