The Statistical Society of Canada offers an accreditation program for statisticians practicing in Canada. The program has two levels of accreditation, namely Associate Statistician (A.Stat.) and Professional Statistician (P.Stat). The qualification of Associate Statistician (A.Stat.) indicates that the holder has demonstrated an advanced understanding of statistical theory and its applications. The qualification of Professional Statistician (P.Stat) indicates that the holder additionally has a minimum of six years of professional experience in the application of statistics. Graduates from one of our programs in Statistics are well on their way to completing the requirements for the qualification of A.Stat.
