TAC Auditor Recruitment Campaign
Become a Technology Accreditation Auditor!
On November 15, 2019, Technology Accreditation Canada (TAC) and Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists (CCTT) proudly announced an agreement to integrate the accreditation services provided by the Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB) with those of TAC.
Under the agreement, TAC became the sole national accrediting body for Canada’s engineering technology and applied science profession and assumed responsibility of all CTAB accredited programs. In consultation with CTAB customers to ensure a seamless transition, the CTAB accredited programs will be converted to the TAC accreditation model within a three-year period.
TAC serves engineering technology and applied science students in technician and technology programs by providing a world-class accreditation service. TAC National program accreditation involves a comprehensive audit, including the review of institutional and program information, interviews with employers of graduates, alumni, students and faculty and a tour of the programs’ labs and student support services.
Being an auditor provides a unique opportunity to share your industry experience and utilize your analytical techniques to assess whether an engineering technology or applied science program meets the standards of the profession.
Prospective auditors are required to sign the Auditor Declaration which is a commitment to adhere to TAC policies. Prospective auditors are required to complete the online training which takes approximately 15-20 hours, depending on one’s pace. Click here for more information about training. Auditors may spend up to 40 hours on an audit and be required to travel out of province.
