Introduction to the Requirements

There are 3 fundamental components of the CE Program:

1) Annual Requirements

Each year, registrants must complete the mandatory Regulatory Learning Module, record one CE Hour of ethical learning, complete their CE Plan, and then declare all CE requirements have been completed by submitting Annual Reporting.

In every reporting year, professional registrants must satisfy the following requirements:

  • Regulatory learning | Complete the Regulatory Learning Module for the current reporting year in the Knowledge Centre. A new module on a different topic is produced each year.
  • Ethical learning | Choose an ethical learning topic from any source (not limited to offerings on egbc.ca) and spend at least one hour learning then record the activity in your CE Reporting System.
  • CE Plan | Complete a CE Plan and Practice-Risk Assessment and save the completed documents to your personal files for at least 10 years. CE Plan templates and examples are available from our Resources page. Your CE Plan requirement will be marked “Complete” upon successfully submitting your Annual Reporting.

See our FAQs for additional information and instructions for completing the regulatory learning, ethical learning, and CE Plan requirements.

2) Three-Year Rolling Period

By the end of each three-year rolling period, registrants must record at least 60 CE Hours of activities (20 hours per year on average) in their CE Reporting System.

At the end of each three-year rolling period, professional registrants must satisfy the following requirements:

  • 60 CE Hours | Record at least 60 CE Hours of activities (20 hours per year on average) in your CE Reporting System.
  • Structural Engineers | Designated structural engineers must record an additional 60 CE Hours of technical learning directly related to their structural engineering practice in their CE Reporting System.

Three-year rolling periods are made up of three consecutive reporting years e.g., July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2024. The first day of each reporting year is also the start of a new three-year rolling period. More information about three-year rolling periods, including the requirements for newly licensed and reinstating registrants, is included in the Guide to the CE Program.

See our FAQs for help with completing your three-year rolling period requirements.

3) CE Declaration

Every reporting year between May 1 – June 30, professional registrants must submit their Annual Reporting to declare all CE requirements have been completed and close the reporting year. 

See our FAQs for additional information about the CE Declaration requirement. 

Failure to complete the CE requirements and/or submit Annual Reporting may result in late fees, suspension, and cancellation.
