OACETT Durham Chapter

The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) is a non-profit, self-governing, professional association of over 25,000 members.

OACETT is Ontario's independent certifying body for engineering and applied science technicians and technologists and confers the designations C.Tech. (Certified Technician) and C.E.T. (Certified Engineering Technologist). These designations are recognized across Canada by employers and other engineering professionals. The A.Sc.T. (Applied Science Technologist) designation is no longer conferred but is still used by some OACETT members.

OACETT promotes the interests of engineering and applied science technicians and technologists in industry, educational institutions, the public and government.

OACETT was incorporated in 1962 and legislated under the Statutes of Ontario by the OACETT Act of 1984. The Act established OACETT as a self-governing body with right to title for its members. Later, the provincial legislature passed the OACETT Act of 1998, a revised act that includes a description of work for technicians and technologists.

OACETT has 28 active chapters where members across the province can meet and network with other technology professionals and participate in local events that can be helpful to their careers or just for fun.  Within each of the six regions, there are several chapters.

OACETT members manage the local chapters. Each chapter holds events each year, ranging from golf tournaments, speakers, plant tours, awards nights, to social events with members of other engineering associations, bonspiels, dinners, dances, family picnics and fishing derbies.

The OACETT Durham Chapter covers the Region of Durham and serves over 1100 members.
