NICET Certification RenewalAs of January 1, 1996, certificants have three year periods to accumulate the 90 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points required for recertification. Being an active ASCET member can earn up to 45 of these points.
AssociationsMeet other members of your profession at chapter, regional, and national meetings who can help you reach your career goals. Help to make future citizens by working with ASCET student chapter members. You will also have the opportunity to broaden your personal horizons by serving with engineers, scientists, and other technicians and technologists on the various joint committees which are frequently formed by groups of other societies to tackle a common problem.
Continuing EducationTake advantage of upcoming educational opportunities offered nationally and published in each issue of CET Magazine. Attend seminars offered at the ASCET Annual Meeting. Seek out the chapters offering training programs for technicians and technologists wishing to continue their professional development.
Student Financial AidASCET sponsors student chapters in high schools, colleges, and universities nationwide and annually awards the Joseph M. Parish and Joseph C. Johnson Memorial Grants of $500 and $750, respectively, to students enrolled in engineering technology programs. The Kurt H. and Donna M. Schuler cash grants of $400 are also available. Call the ASCET Office for information.
Employment Referral Service
This free member service attempts to place members seeking employment with companies seeking employees. Lists of potential employees and employers are published in most issues of CET Magazine and on the web site.
Aside from the obvious job-related advantages of belonging to a professional society, you will find more and more members attributing their success in a multitude of ventures outside the work place to the knowledge, leadership ability, confidence, and public speaking skills gained during their involvement with ASCET.
