If you’re a general contractor, you must complete Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to keep your licence in good standing.
During your one-year licence term, you must complete a minimum of 20 CPD points related to the residential construction industry. Points can be earned through training, from research and education development, or a combination of both. You can earn two CPD points per hour of formal learning and one CPD point per hour of informal learning.
Under our enhanced CPD program, you can carry a maximum of 20 extra CPD points over from one licence term to the next, if the nominee for CPD stays the same.
Reporting CPD is an essential part of maintaining and renewing your residential builder licence as a general contractor. Use your account on the Licensed Residential Builders Portal to log your CPD hours.
We encourage you to read our Continuing Professional Development: A Guide for Licensed Residential Builders in British Columbia. It will help you understand the CPD program requirements and answer many of your questions. Learn about choosing your nominee, acceptable types of training, keeping records and CPD audits, reporting your CPD and more. The guide explains every stage of your annual CPD requirements.
