Frequently Asked Questions


My qualifications are in Technological Education. Which AQs can I take?

If you have qualifications in Technological Education subjects, your certificate of qualification and registration permits you to complete a number of Additional Qualification courses, including any in Schedule C.

If you hold a degree, you could complete an Additional Qualification in the Primary, Junior, Intermediate or Senior Divisions with subjects from Schedule A.

Technology teachers with any background could complete courses from Schedule B in any broad-based technology with certain provisions:

  • If the program is for a Grade 9 and 10 AQ, you do not require any specific prerequisites beyond the technological qualifications you already hold.
  • If the AQ is for a Grade 11 and 12 technology, you require one year of work experience and competence in that technology.

You could also complete selected three–session Additional Qualifications from Schedule D.

Beginning in September 2011, you will also be able to complete additional courses in your technology area from Schedule F.

In addition, teachers with technological qualifications who hold a degree can complete:

  • Principal’s Qualifications providing they meet all the other prerequisites identified in regulation
  • Supervisory Officer’s Qualification providing they meet all the other prerequisites identified in regulation.
