New CPD Requirements
BC Housing’s Continuing Professional Development requirement for licencing began October 1, 2015.
Builder companies may not achieve their credits by sending different employees to courses to accumulate the total credits required for the year.
The required annual credits total is 20. For more information, visit https://www.bchousing.org/licensing-consumer-services/builder-licensing/CPD
VRBA holds monthly lunch meetings from 12 noon to 1 pm at our office offering free CPD approved presentations with free pizza and pop for members. We support education and professionalism!
