Reporting CPD

All Licensed Residential Builders with general contractor status must complete a minimum of 40 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points during their one-year licence term.

Training accounts for a minimum of 20 of the 40 points you need to renew your residential builder licence. However, in some cases — such as when you only have limited active practice points — training may account for most or all the 40 points you need.

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 enter your hours spent on:

  • Formal and informal learning
  • Active practice
  • Research and education development

If you’re a builder who is classified as a developer only or building envelope renovator only then you do not have to take CPD.
