WOW! Late Breaking News
The Association of Science and Engineering Technology of Alberta (ASET) members will now be writing the National Professional Practice Exam (NPPE). This initiative is effective October 1, 2013, and ASET feels the standard is suitable for their members to be tested on. I would expect there will now be a rush to write the old CET exam as any applicants after October 1, 2013 will be subject to the NPPE.
