- AScT Applied Science Technologist
关于国际学历申请人 ABOUT INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS - 飞出国
TechNova is a self-governing professional association of over 2,500 applied science and engineering technologists and technicians. Many of the TechNova-registered Technology Professionals were educated in Canada and many others acquired their primary technology education in another country.
International Applicants represent a substantial portion of the Nova Scotia work force and this trend will continue into the future. To assist them as they consider relocating to Canada and then upon arrival, TechNova has developed a framework of services designed to assist International Applicants make a quick and sustained transition to the Nova Scotia workforce and build a meaningful and rewarding career as a Technologist or Technician.
This section of our web site was created through the generous support of the NS Government and the hard work and dedication of TechNova staff and members who volunteered their time in providing input to the overall program.
We trust you find this section helpful and we hope you find the many services useful as you settle in Nova Scotia. We welcome your feedback on how we might improve this site and make the many services we provide more valuable.
申请临时会员的国际申请人 PROVISIONAL MEMBERSHIP FOR INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS - 飞出国
但是，这种会员认证是临时的，会根据要求的1年加拿大工作经验的完成情况而变化。临时会员的有效期最少是3年，从注册登记得到批准那天开始算起。在3年的有效期内，临时会员可申请再次分级，转变为正式会员。如果申请人不能将临时会员身份转化，3年后，考试委员会（Board of Examiners）会对申请人的会员身份再次进行评估，并将会员再次进行分级。
This policy is designed to ensure that current TechNova standards of certification are maintained for International Applicants, but also addresses some of the employment challenges applicants face as new immigrants to Canada. The International Applicants will have to meet all the current academic criteria and experience requirements, with ‘Provisional Membership’ being provided for those who only lack the one year Canadian experience.
These applicants would be given full certification, to the appropriate level (AScT or CTech), provided that the individual meets the academic and total experiential requirements required at the time of their application and are a resident of Canada and shall provide proof of Canadian citizenship or landed immigrant status upon request.
Their membership certification, however, would be ‘Provisional’ and contingent on completion of the one year required Canadian experience. These ‘Provisional’ members would have a maximum period of three years, from the date of their registration approval; At anytime during the three year period, the ‘Provisional’ member can apply for reclassification to have their ‘Provisional’ status upgraded to regular membership. After the three years, their membership status would automatically be required to be reassessed by the Board of Examiners. Such a reassessment could result in the Board reclassifying the individual to Associate, if the expectation is that the individual is unlikely to be able to progress to having the ‘Provisional’ status removed.
The ‘Provisional’ member status would be identified by the member having his/her designation (AScT or CTech) followed by the word ‘Provisional’ in brackets after their name, i.e. AScT (Provisional) and this status would also be tracked within the internal data base of TechNova.
Their ‘Provisional’ membership certificate would be designed specifically for their status, clearly marked as ‘Provisional’ and be differentiated from the regular membership certificate for current AScT and CTech members.
临时国际申请人不会被授予印章（Stamp）PROVISIONAL INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS WILL NOT BE ISSUED A STAMP
The International Applicant will have to complete the professional practice examination that would be required at the time of their application, prior to being certified and registered. The examination module would have to be provided to TechNova for evaluation of completeness and acceptability. Their international work experience would also have to be validated by references that could be directly contacted by TechNova or supported by notarized confirmation letters. 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.
A technical report is a current requirement for AScT registration, unless waived by the Board of Examiners as part of the academic assessment. Technical reports for technologist level ITPs would also be required, unless previously waived by the Board, to be completed within the ‘Provisional’ time period of three years and before the ‘Provisional’ status is removed. The intent is to have the technical report reflect their Canadian experience.
This process for ITPs in no way degrades our current standards of membership and identifies for employers potential employees who have met the basic standards for ASTTBC certified membership. Employers will be readily able to identify that these individuals lack Canadian experience from their resumes, which employers would require to be supplied during the hiring process, and the ‘Provisional’ designation.
如何申请HOW TO APPLY - 飞出国
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.
基本要求 BASIC REQUIREMENTS - 飞出国
Certification refers to the process of becoming a registered member of TechNova. Membership is restricted to those technology professionals who meet the National Technology Bench Marks in three key areas:
- Academic qualifications
- Work experience
- Professional ethics
认证标准 CERTIFICATION CRITERIA
根据应用科学技师和技术员法案以及新斯科舍省规定，认证工程技师或认证技术员的申请人要同时有学历培训和工作经验。AScT认证的最低的学历要求技术类文凭（2至3年 post secondary training），并且来自全国认可的项目或同等项目。CTech认证的最低学历要求是技术员文凭（1至2年的post secondary training），并且来自全国认可的项目或同等项目。
Applicants for certification and registration as an Certified Engineering Technologist (CET) or Certified Technician (CTech) under the Applied Science Technologists & Technicians Act & Regulations of Nova Scotia requires both academic training and experience. The minimum academics required for AScT certification is a Diploma of Technology (2 – 3 years post secondary training) from a nationally accredited program or equivalent. The minimum academics required for CTech certification is a Technician Certificate (1 – 2 years post secondary training) from a nationally accredited program or equivalent.
AScT and CTech certification requires the applicant to have a minimum of two years of related work experience, with at least one year at the level of certification. In addition, one year of the work experience must be in Canada. Internationally trained professionals may qualify for ‘Provisional’ membership provided that the foreign academics and experience are acceptable. Reclassification from the ‘Provisional’ status is possible after the one year Canadian experience is achieved.
