Registered practicing members will need to summarize their professional development activities and submit them to the Association. The primary method of submission is through the Online Profile. Once the initial three year period is concluded, these activities will be evaluated at the end of each year by looking at the previous three years of entries and comparing them to the following criteria: (Section 4)
The Continuing Competency Committee (CCC) will be tasked with this evaluation.
There are several instances where the CCC will make interpretations of the CPD Program. In some instances interpretation may be requested by a member, while in others the committee will determine that their interpretation should be given. These interpretations include, but are not limited to:
All interpretations made by the CCC shall be published for reference by the membership. (Section 1.4)
In instances where practicing members refuse to comply with this program, the CCC may forward the matter to the Investigation Committee as a complaint. (Section 6)
There is an application for abatement of the program requirements for members in special circumstances, which may result in a reduced number of professional development hours required. (Section 2.1)
There is also a declaration that out-of-province members can make stating that they comply with another approved CPD program, in which case they will be exempted from the APEGM CPD program. (Section 2.2)
These forms are available in your online profile.
Retired members are not subject to this CPD program, however they will undergo an evaluation by the CCC if they wish to return to practicing status. (Section 2.1.2)
Please contact the Professional Standards Officer with any questions or concerns regarding the APEGM CPD Program.
