The In-Training program is a requirement for all newly registered members of the Alberta Institute of Agrologists (AIA). New In-Training members are granted one of 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. In-Training members are registered professionals who must practice under the direct supervision of a qualified registered professional.

The In-Training program is intended to prepare the AIA member for competent, independent and ethical practice.

The In-Training program includes the following key requirements:
  • Completion of the four mandatory in-training courses
  • Attendance (at least once during the in-training period) at an annual AIA AGM and Conference
  • Completion of required years of Canadian agrology-related work experience
  • Submit a proposed Practice Area
  • Submit three Professional references, at least one being a Professional Agrologist or Registered Technologist in Agrology
  • Submit an updated resume
  • Maintain their annual CCP requirements during the In-training period
Upon completion of the In-Training program, the AIA member must apply online to the institute to transition to full designation. It is up to the In-Training member to ensure that all In-Training program requirements are complete and that all documentation has been submitted to the institute for the Competence Committee to review their file.
