ASET is committed to recognizing the qualifications of technology professionals with unique backgrounds and circumstances. 

The Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) pre-assessment program is designed for certification applicants who:

  • Have not graduated from an applied science, engineering, or information technology program or are unable to produce academic transcripts, and
  • Have a minimum of 24 months of relevant technical work experience

If you have a journeyman certificate, have completed a post-secondary technical certificate, or have graduated from a military technical program, you are qualified academically to apply for C.Tech and are NOT required to complete a PLAR assessment. Please proceed to the C.Tech. application page.
