Continuing Education Program
The Professional Governance Act requires Engineers and Geoscientists BC to develop and implement a mandatory Continuing Education Program.
The core elements of this program were reviewed and approved by Engineers and Geoscientists BC’s Council in November 2019, following consultation with registrants.
The new program will focus on maintaining competency in each registrant's area of practice. All registrants will also be required to complete learning activities around ethics and regulations every year.
Work is underway to develop a new Continuing Education Program Guideline and tools to support registrants in meeting their obligations to stay current and align with the new requirements. Council will be confirming the program elements in April and an update will be published to registrants in May 2020.
In January 2021, the new guideline will be available for registrants to review in advance of the program becoming mandatory in 2022.
Beginning in January 2022, and onwards, registrants should be recording their continuing education activities under the new guideline.
