National Transferability

A certified technician or technologist can work and be professionally recognized in any Canadian province. The CCTT and the Provincial Associations have developed a seamless system for member transfer that is compliant with the Federal/Provincial Agreement on Internal Trade.

International Transferability

  • As a result of CCTT’s participation in international agreements through the International Engineering Alliance, (IEA), graduates from accredited CTAB programs and who are certified in Canada are recognized around the world, giving way to the recent establishment of two new international designations recognized within the alliance that will allow technology professionals to have their credentials recognized by other IEA signatory countries overseas.
  • Through the International Engineering Technology Agreement (IETA) 2001, CCTT now offers an International Engineering Technologist designation — IntET (Canada).

IntET (Canada) Application Form

  • Through the International Engineering Technology Agreement (IETA) 2017, CCTT now offers an International Engineering Technicians designation — IntETni (Canada).

The new professional designations will provide certified technology professionals seeking overseas employment opportunities with a competitive advantage by having their credentials recognized internationally.

These new agreements bring all of CCTT’s provincial members (and their certified technicians and technologists) coverage under the international educational accords — the Sydney Accord for Technologists and the Dublin accord for Technicians — as well as under two international mobility agreements — the existing IETA for technologists and the new AIET that will cover technicians.

The Professional Technology Ring

Background: The technology ring is a symbol of professionalism. It is worn exclusively by certified applied science/ engineering technologists and technicians across the country. The ring is characterized by a repeating pattern of five gears bracketed by a maple leaf on each side. The gears represent the five members of the engineering team – trades person, technician, technologist, engineer and scientist. While it may be worn according to the member’s preference, professional rings are traditionally worn on the last finger of the working hand.
