Continuous professional development a requirement for retaining your BCIN numbersPublished: 2017-11-17, OBOA Original Article
"We understand that continuous professional development will become a requirement for retaining your BCIN numbers, and is already a requirement of the CBCO system. As a result, CPD information (such as courses attended and completed) will soon need to be made available to municipal employers, designer employers, other professional associations that our members belong to, the Ministry of Municipal Affairs as well as other parties who have a reasonable need to receive CPD information.
The OBOA has become a recognized source by legislators, regulators and other interested parties of authoritative information on CPD credits. Therefore, beginning in September 2018, CPDP credit data within OBOA's database will be available by request of these parties who have a reasonable need for such information.
Please ensure that you stay current with your reporting of credits, and that you are properly scanned where technology is used to verify attendance at qualifying events, such as the AMTS training sessions and some chapter events.
