Education & Training

VRBA is recognized as an education provider by the BC Housing’s Licensing and Consumer Services Branch. We deliver programs approved for Continuing Professional Development points for BC’s licensed builders. For a complete list of education opportunities, please see the current edition of our Newsletter

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!

In addition, we have arranged with the Vancouver Island Construction Association to provide discount pricing for their courses. Visit
