Continuing Professional Development

The purpose of FPBC’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program is for registrants to grow, maintain, and demonstrate their level of competence across the span of their professional careers.

Ensuring the competence of registrants is a pillar of professional regulation. Competence is the first standard of FPBC’s Code of Ethical and Professional Conduct.

Significant rigour is exerted to assess competence upon entry to the profession. A structured CPD program demonstrates how registrants continue to actively learn and expand their professional competence through the stages of their careers.

Read the CPD Program and Policies for more details on the CPD program and how it is implemented.

CPD Requirements

Every practising RPF and RFT registrant must undertake and report to FPBC 30 hours of CPD between December 1 and November 30 each year. This requirement stems from the Professional Governance Act and FPBC Bylaw 10.

CPD Reporting Tool

All CPD activities must be tracked and reported to FPBC using the CPD Reporting Tool. The tool allows registrants to keep a record of hours spent in CPD activities/endeavours and allows registrants to reflect on and document the effectiveness of each learning activity.
