Becoming a Member

Frequently Asked Questions

Membership confers status and regard of other professions and members of the public on the members.  It is also an assurance of accountability to their peers for the actions of its members.  They are held to a Code of Ethics, required to continue professional learning and their practice may be audited by the College.

The Code is a statement of principles that govern the conduct of members in the College.  Members are held accountable to the principles of the Code.

The College has seven different categories of membership; Register Professional Biologist (RPBio), Registered Biology Technician (RBTech), Applied Biology Technician (ABT), Biologists in Training, Trainee (RBTech), Trainee (ABT), and Student.  Students, Trainees and Biologists in Training are categories that lead to becoming either an RPBio, RBTech, or ABT and provide for membership in and support of the College while satisfying the academic and work requirements for membership as an RPBio, RBTech, or ABT.

For each category of membership, there is guidance and application forms that can be accessed through visiting the Become a Member section of this site.  Applications can be submitted electronically.
