Graduates from a 2-year post-secondary program in engineering technology or applied science generally work towards a Certified Technician (C.Tech.) designation. Graduates with three or more years of engineering technology or applied science education can work towards a Certified Engineering Technologist (C.E.T.) designation.
You must have at least two years experience for certification. For C.E.T. certification, you need to provide a job description and supervisor reference indicating that you have worked at the technologist level for at least six months. The role of a technologist is typically one that members progress into after they begin their careers with technician-level responsibilities, and in most cases requires a minimum of three years experience.

for some general guidelines regarding certification-level experience.
