Under the Building Act, all qualified building and plumbing officials must complete continuing professional development, as specified by the Minister, to maintain their qualifications.
Qualified officials are required to complete and report on 10 points of eligible CPD each calendar year (i.e. January 1 to December 31). Reporting on CPD activities, which includes uploading evidence of attendance, is completed through the Association website. Further information on how to report CPD points can be found here.
A building or plumbing official may have their required CPD points pro-rated during the year in which they obtain their first qualification. The pro-rating would occur as follows:
|Application Approval Date||Number of Required CPD Points|
|January 1 – March 31||10 points|
|April 1 – June 30||7.5 points|
|July 1 – Sept 30||5 points|
|October 1 – December 30||2.5 points|
