OACETT’s organizational structure, code of ethics and disciplinary process demonstrate OACETT’s commitment to public safety and the protection of the environment.
The association’s vision and mission statements below explain OACETT’s commitment.
Advancing the engineering and applied science technology profession in Ontario, in Canada and world-wide.
OACETT is Ontario’s independent certifying body for engineering and applied science technicians and technologists. The Association provides exceptional member certification, benefits and services. In so doing, OACETT meets the needs of its members, creates a visible and globally-recognized professional standard, and serves the public interest.
Associate members and certified OACETT members make a commitment to adhere to the Code of Ethics. Certified OACETT members must pass the Professional Practice Examination (PPE) or the Internationally Educated Professional Practice Exam (IEPPE) to demonstrate they understand the Code of Ethics and their legal obligations to the public, their employers and themselves.
The OACETT Act requires the association to have a disciplinary process in place. OACETT’s By-law 19 establishes the complaints and disciplinary process. It holds members accountable and responsible for their actions.
In this way, the association assures employers, legislators and the public that Certified Engineering Technologists (C.E.T), Applied Science Technologists (A.Sc.T.) and Certified Technicians (C.Tech.) act with integrity. Our commitment shows that certified members hold as most important the safety, health and welfare of the public, the protection of the environment and the promotion of health and safety within the workplace.
