The Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists

Young Professionals Committee

Established in 2018, the OACETT Young Professionals Committee (YPC) is a diverse group targeting OACETT members 35 years of age and younger. The committee works on initiatives and recommendations to meet the needs of OACETT’s young professionals, including strengthening member engagement and recruitment through helping to implement social and advocacy programs and strategies.
