Council is pleased to announce a new registration category - Registered Technologist in Agrology (RTAg) with the associated Articling Program effective March 1, 2020. The RTAg application form is available NOW!
PROMO: Effective March 1, 2020 to February 28, 2021 BCIA will waive half ($100.00) of the RTAg application fee for ALL applicants. This is to promote the new technologist category in the first year of it being implemented.
In 2018, BCIA submitted an intentions paper to the BC government indicating the desire to obtain practice rights. This milestone triggered the potential for an additional designation that would allow those with education that may not meet the requirements of the PAg designation, to be able to continue practicing within their field. By providing another avenue for those practicing agrology to become registered professionals especially once practice rights are introduced, it protects and serves the public interest. BCIA also comes into alignment with our partner organizations (ex. CAB and ABCFP) to which they each offer a technologist category. +READ MORE
A PPT (in PDF) has been created to provide a simple outline detailing the new technologist category.
