Engineers and Geoscientists BC provides registrants with a variety of opportunities to ensure they are meeting their continuing education requirements. Courses, branch events, and division events are held throughout the year and provide professional registrants with the hours needed to comply with the Continuing Education (CE) Program. To learn more about the requirements of the CE Program, review Section 3.2 of the Guide to the Continuing Education Program.
Achieve your continuing education goals wherever you are. Our Knowledge Centre makes it easy to enjoy flexibility while achieving your continuing education goals. The Knowledge Centre features video recordings of live Engineers and Geoscientists BC webinars and online courses, making continuing education opportunities more accessible to registrants. New videos and courses are added throughout the year.
Mandatory Regulatory Learning Module 2021–2022
As part of the CE Program, practising registrants must view the mandatory Regulatory Learning module in the current reporting year (July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022) to meet their requirements. Non-practising registrants and trainees may also view the module and record it as a CE activity; non-practising registrants must view at least one module every three years.
This module is free, will take approximately 1 hour to complete, and includes multiple knowledge checks. After viewing the module, the viewing session will be recorded in the registrant's online reporting system, and it will be noted that the registrant has met the annual Regulatory Learning requirement.
Ethical Learning Requirement
As part of the CE Program, practising registrants must complete at least 1 CE Hour of ethical learning every year. Hours may be completed through the videos and recordings in the Knowledge Centre. Registrants may also choose to complete ethical learning through other resources including activities from other regulatory bodies, Massive Open Online Courses, or self-study of guidelines, publications, and other relevant resources. All ethical learning activities must be confirmed or recorded in the reporting system once completed.
Webinars, annual conferences, branch, and division events are frequently offered at low or no cost to registrants throughout the year. Visit the events page to view upcoming opportunities.
Registrants can meet continuing education requirements by attending Engineers and Geoscientists BC seminars throughout the year. These seminars focus on a variety of topics related to engineering, geoscience, technical writing, leadership, and business management.
Registrants can also find a variety of external technical, management, and business-related courses and events offered by other organization on our External Events listing.
Consider joining our mentoring program or volunteering with an Engineers and Geoscientists BC advisory group, branch, or division.
While Engineers and Gesocientists BC does not accredit external education providers, there are a variety of ways to obtain CE Hours through other sources.
- Search for an industry group in your area of practice; these may be regional (e.g., Coast Waste Management Assocation), provincial (e.g., Association for Mineral Exploration BC), national (e.g., Canadian Medical and Biological Engineering Society), North American, (e.g., American Society of Civil Engineers) or international (e.g., IEEE).
- Subscribe to a relevant industry group’s newsletter, magazine, or journal for opportunities of self-study.
- Attend the conference of a relevant industry association.
- Submit a paper to an industry publication.
- Join a group or attend events that focus on communications, business, or leadership learning (e.g., public speaking organizations or business roundtables).
- Take a Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) through an online provider or higher-education body such as coursera.org and edx.org.
Registered attendees unable to attend an event may designate a substitute, provided Engineers and Geoscientists British Columbia receives written notification at least one business day prior to the event.
Engineers and Geoscientists BC’s CE reporting system is the place for all registrants to record their CE activities and upload their CE Plans.
Registrants can download a report of their records from the previous Professional Development Recording Centre; however, they will no longer be able to enter new activities into that system.
