Established in 1972 as the Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists of Prince Edward Island,¬† Island Technology Professionals¬†(ITP), is Prince Edward Island’s independent certifying body for engineering/applied science technicians and technologists. Certification is accomplished by a Board of Examiners which includes a panel of technical experts from varied disciplines. The Board evaluates applications and recommends certification of engineering/applied science technicians and technologists who meet recognized national standards in education and experience.

ITP confers the designations “C.Tech.”, “CET” and “AScT.” which are symbols of achievement in engineering/applied science technology and are legally protected for use only by fully certified members. The designations are recognized across Canada by many employers and other engineering professionals through the efforts of provincial associations that make up the¬†Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists (CCTT).
