2015 Certified Professional (CP) Program

The 2015 Certified Professional (CP) Program Course is being offered jointly by the Architectural Institute of B.C. (AIBC) and the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of B.C. (APEGBC). This course, including successful completion of the exams, is required for architects and engineers to become Certified Professionals under the CP Program. This is an alternative to the conventional building permit and inspection process utilized by the City of Vancouver and the City of Surrey, as well as some other municipalities.

This course is intended for architects and engineers with a strong knowledge of Canadian building codes and experience in the building construction industry. Although the course is open to all, only architects and engineers can become CPs.

This course will consist of twelve (12) full-day seminars which are scheduled Wednesdays between September 16 and December 16, 2015 and two (2) 8-hour exams, which are scheduled on Wednesday, January 20 and 27, 2016. Those interested in becoming CPs are required to attend the sessions, complete two projects and pass all exams.

The in-person course is currently full, however there are still spaces available for the webinar. The participants in remote locations are responsible for their internet connections with recommended minimum download and upload speeds of 1 Mbps and 512 Kbps, respectively. Exams will be held only on site at the AIBC. Registration is now open.

Date: Wednesdays between September 16 and December 16, 2015, 8:30am – 5:00pm
Location: Online
Learning Units (LUs): 84 Core LUs
To register: http://aibc.memberpro.net/main/body.cfm?menu=events

*Note: Webinar participants will be required to attend in person the two site visits (to be held in Vancouver and/or Surrey) and the exams held at the AIBC offices in Vancouver.
