Engineers and Geoscientists BC and the Architectural Institute of British Columbia (AIBC) are offering the Certified Professional (CP) Course once again. Interested engineers and architects may now register for the 2019 CP course, scheduled to begin January 9, 2019.

The 2019 Certified Professional (CP) Course will be based on the 2018 BC Building Code, expected to be issued later in 2018.

The CP Program is an alternative to the conventional building permit and inspection process utilized by the City of Vancouver and the City of Surrey, as well as some other municipalities. Through the program, participating municipalities can issue a building permit on the assurances of a recognized registered professional (engineer or architect)—the CP. The CP Course focuses on Part 3 and the relevant associated provisions of the BC Building Code and the Vancouver Building Bylaw, and on CP practice.

The CP Course schedule consists of 12 full-day sessions on Wednesdays from January 9, 2019, to April 10, 2019. There are no classes on February 13 and March 27, 2019. There is 1 half-day tutorial on April 17, 2019. The CP Course concludes with 2 full-day exams on April 24 and May 1, 2019.

Although anyone may take the course, only architects and engineers may practice as CPs. Intern architects AIBC and engineers-in-rraining who meet all course requirements and pass the exams will be able to practice as CPs when they become BC registered architects or engineers.

The course is offered live at the AIBC office in downtown Vancouver and remotely via webcast. Space is limited. Registration closes December 3, 2018.
