There are two main streams of membership in the Saskatchewan Institute of Agrologists:
- Agricultural Technologists
Before being registered as a full member in either stream, every member must go through an articling period.
The basic criteria for membership as an Agrologist is:
- Related four-year degree as approved by the admissions committee, including agribusiness or renewable resources management
- Graduate degree approved by the admissions committee
Applicants are initially provided membership as Articling Agrologists (AAg) and permitted to practice the profession of agrology. On completion of all the articling milestones, members may apply for full Professional Agrologist (PAg) status.
Agricultural Technologist Stream
The basic criteria for membership as an Agricultural Technologist is:
- Two year diploma from the University of Saskatchewan
- Two year diploma as approved by the admissions committee
Applicants are initially provided membership as Articling Agricultural Technologist (AAT). On completion of all the articling requirements, members may apply for full Agricultural Technologist (AT) status.
A member of either stream must start as an articling member and complete a variety of milestones before registration as a full member. The articling process must be completed within three years, otherwise the individual must reapply to become an articling member.
Individuals with international education and experience are encouraged to apply for membership, providing the same information as domestically educated applicants, as well as, a comprehensive course-by-course (specialized) credential evaluation.
