As a regulated professional, it is your responsibility to ensure that you continue to meet the registration requirements while you are a regulated member of the College. If you are moving out of the province, retiring, or taking a leave of absence from your employment as a medical radiation or electroneurophysiology technologist, you may resign your registration. If you have been registered to practice the profession through the College in the past and intend to start practicing in Alberta again, you are required to complete the application for general registration and meet all registration requirements at the time of application.
All applications are now completed online with the exception of applications for internationally educated technologists. If you are a current (general, temporary or student) or former member of the College and wish to move to another registration category or resign, log in to My Profile to request the change. An overview of all the available registration pathways is provided below.
For more information and details on how to complete your application, please visit the Applicants section of the website. If you have any questions about how to change your registration, please feel welcome to contact the College by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 780.487.6130 or 1.800.282.2165.
Moving to General Registration
To apply for general registration as a current or former member of the College, you must meet all the same requirements as new applicants, including practice hours, professional liability insurance and conduct.
Moving to Temporary Registration
If you are currently registered as a student member with the College and have completed your educational program and obtained an offer of employment before completing the entry-to-practice examination, you may apply for temporary registration.
Additional information about resignation
Resignation applications cannot be backdated. If the requested date of your resignation falls on a weekend/statutory holiday, your resignation will be processed on the next business day. Rules, regulations, fees and refunds will apply according to the effective date of the registration change. Members who submit a complete resignation application with an effective date up to June 30 may be eligible for a refund, per the schedule below:
|January 1 – June 30
|July 1 – December 31
Members who submit a complete resignation application with an effective date after June 30 are not eligible for a refund.
The College will review your resignation application, then send you an email confirming that your resignation has been received and accepted. Once you receive this notification, you are no longer permitted to practice any aspect of the profession in Alberta, including the clinical and technical aspects of the profession as well as functions of education, management, research, and administration. You are also no longer subject to the College’s registration requirements, including participating in the CCP and completing the annual renewal process. You can disregard any notices you might receive from the College once you have submitted your resignation.
Please note that resignations have no bearing on your future eligibility for general registration, provided you are in good standing when you resign (i.e., you did not resign due to conduct issues). Registration requirements are the same for new members and former members returning to practice. Provided you meet all these requirements, including the practice hours requirement, your application for general registration as a resigned member will be processed the same way as a new member’s application.
