AIBC-registered architects and architectural technologists are reminded that the next AIBC Mandatory Continuing Education System (CES) reporting period deadline is Saturday, June 30, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time. CES Participants have only one month remaining to earn and report a total of 36 Learning Units (LUs) for the July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2018 period.
To date, nearly 63 per cent of CES Participants have met their continuing education requirements for the 2016–2018 reporting period. Thank you to those who have completed this important regulatory obligation.
The requirement to comply with the CES is outlined in AIBC Bylaw 30.2. The primary objective of the CES bylaw is to require the professional development of all CES Participants.

Architects Registered in Multiple Canadian Jurisdictions
If you are registered in another Canadian Jurisdiction, you may be eligible to file a Declaration of Out-of-Province CES Compliance.
Any Architect AIBC who is both registered in another Canadian licensing jurisdiction and compliant with their mandatory continuing education system is deemed to be compliant with the AIBC’s CES requirements in the relevant reporting period, providing that compliance is reported to the AIBC following the reciprocity reporting procedures.
A declaration can be submitted at any time, and must be submitted each reporting period. For more information, please review Bulletin 81: Mandatory Continuing Education System: Canadian Reciprocity Option.
AIBC Council Rule 5: Continuing Education System (CES) indicates that CES Participants who do not earn and report the required LUs to the AIBC by the end of a reporting period will be required to pay a council-mandated fine, as well as earn and report the required LUs by no later than September 30, following the conclusion of the reporting period. Should a CES Participant’s LUs remain incomplete and unreported or the Council-mandated fine unpaid beyond September 30, a complaint of unprofessional conduct against the CES Participant will be placed with the Director of Professional Conduct.
If you have questions about the CES, please review Bulletin 80: Mandatory Continuing Education System (CES) Rules and Guidelines and the CES Frequently Asked Questions.
