January 2015:

 

We have learned recently that the International Certification Commission (ICC) has been replaced by the AAMI Credentials Institute (ACI) as of Jan.1, 2015. You will no doubt have many questions. At the moment we know two things for certain, one, Certification will continue in Canada and two, we have been assured that any Canadian credential in good standing will be transferred to the ACI on January 1, 2015.

 

We have modified our membership cards and certificates to remove any reference to the ICC; all renewing members will receive the new card and new certifications will receive the new certificate.

 

Over the next few months, the Board will be reviewing our documentation, processes, and establishing a dialogue with the new ACI. We will provide an update of our progress and any changes that are required.  

 

Sincerely, 

 

Larry Boyce, CET, CBET(c)

June 2009: Dialysis Certification Program Approved

“On June1, 2009, the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) transferred the rights, title, and interest to The Canadian Board of Examiners for Biomedical Engineering Technologists and Technicians (BMET Board), to issue the “cdt” designation to Certified Dialysis Technologists and Technicians. OACETT and the BMET Board have always had a common goal to advance the professional status of Technicians and Technologists, and this alignment of the “cdt” designation to the BMET Board further supports this goal. The BMET Board recognizes the important role OACETT and other constituent members of the Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists have in supporting specialized certification of it’s members.”
