Alberta College of Medical Diagnostic and Therapeutic Technologists

Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) Program 

The Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) Program is a pre-payment option that allows registrants on the General register to pay next year’s Annual Renewal fee using automatic withdrawal from their bank account. 

PAD subscribers can sign up to pay in advance for their 2025 renewal fee in six (6) monthly withdrawals from March 15, 2024, to August 15, 2024.  

The PAD Program is managed through the College and requires a registrant to submit an online enrollment and pre-authorization debit form. 

PAD subscribers must still complete their Annual Renewal for the applicable year. Your PAD funds will be applied to your invoice on submission of your renewal. If your renewal is submitted late (after November 30), late fees will apply.
