New In-Training members are granted two professional designations: Agrologist In-Training (AIT) OR Agrology Technologist In-Training (ATT). The In-Training program must be completed before the full designation of Professional Agrologist (PAg) OR Registered Technologist in Agrology (RTAg) can be granted.
