To that end, the committee is to consider, in particular,
(1)  the objectives of the training programs that lead to a diploma giving access to a permit or a specialist’s certificate issued by the Order;
(2)  the objectives of the other terms and conditions for the issue of permits or specialist’s certificates that may be imposed by a regulation of the board of directors; and
(3)  the diploma or training equivalence standards giving access to a permit or a specialist’s certificate issued by the Order.

(a)  in respect of projects involving the review or development of the objectives or standards referred to in the third paragraph of section 2; and
