The Professional Governance Act requires Engineers and Geoscientists BC to develop and implement a mandatory CE Program. The core elements of this program were reviewed and approved by Engineers and Geoscientists BC’s Council in November 2019 and May 2020, following consultation with registrants.

The CE Program is in effect as of July 1, 2021, and the first reporting deadline will be June 30, 2022. Registrants are required to undertake a blend of technical, non-technical, regulatory, and ethical training to meet program requirements, and the program is built to be flexible in allowing registrants to identify the areas of learning most relevant to maintaining their competency.

The CE Program is mandatory and applies to all registrants with practice rights. Registrants with a Non-practising or Retired designation will have to complete minimum requirements to maintain ethical and regulatory competency. Engineers-in-training and geoscientists-in-training are exempt from the program. Practising registrants can apply for an exemption on a yearly basis for parental, medical, or compassionate care leave, or for other extenuating circumstances.
