Every year, as part of Engineers and Geoscientists BC’s Continuing Education (CE) Program, practising registrants are required to complete a Regulatory Learning Module to meet their CE requirements. The Regulatory Learning Module covers essential regulatory topics relevant to all Engineers and Geoscientists BC registrants.
The 2022–2023 Mandatory Regulatory Learning Module
is focused on truth and reconciliation with Indigenous peoples and what reconciliation means for engineering and geoscience professionals working in British Columbia. The module also provides basic foundational information about the history of Indigenous peoples and their communities in Canada and the impacts that continue to persist into the present.
By the end of the module, registrants will:
- Gain an introduction to basic concepts of truth and reconciliation, including a brief history of settler colonization and the residential school system.
- Identify the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action.
- Learn how truth and reconciliation intersects with equity, diversity and inclusion.
- Understand their role in truth and reconciliation, particularly in their engineering and geoscience work approach.
- Apply their knowledge in three scenarios.
The module is interactive and provides an engaging learning experience by including videos, interviews, activities, case studies, scenarios, and additional resources, as well as opportunities for self-reflection. It will take approximately one and a half hours to complete.
The module was developed by Engineers and Geoscientists BC and an external consultant specialized in the development of online educational content for professionals, in close collaboration with a team of Indigenous and non-Indigenous subject matter experts. This module was reviewed by volunteer groups from both Engineers and Geoscientists BC and Engineers Canada.
When complete, registrants are required to record the module in the CE Reporting System. The module is free for all registrants and must be completed by practising registrants before June 30, 2023.
