Engineers and Geoscientists BC and AIBC have been offering the Certified Professional (CP) Course since 2015. The 2019 CP Course is now available for registration to those interested. This course will be based on the 2018 BC Building Code, expected to be issued summer 2018.
The CP Program is an alternative to the conventional building permit and inspection process utilized by the City of Vancouver and the City of Surrey, as well as some other municipalities. Through the program, participating municipalities can issue a building permit on the assurances of a recognized registered professional (engineer or architect) – the CP. The CP Course focuses on Part 3 and the relevant associated provisions of the BC Building Code and the Vancouver Building By-law, and topics closely related to CP practice.
The CP Course schedule consists of 12 full-day sessions on Wednesdays from January 9, 2019 to April 10, 2019. There are no classes on February 13 and March 27, 2019. There is 1 half-day tutorial on April 17, 2019. The CP Course concludes with 2 full-day exams on April 24 and May 1, 2019.
There are 25 seats available for the live seminars at the AIBC offices located at #100 – 440 Cambie Street, Vancouver. An additional 10 positions are available for attendance by webcast.
Although anyone may take the course, only architects and engineers may practice as CPs. Intern Architects AIBC and Engineers In Training who meet all course requirements and pass the exams will be able to practice as CPs when they become BC registered Architects or Engineers.
The CP Course cost is $4,800 until October 15, 2018, and $5,100 after October 15, 2018. Registration closes December 3, 2018.
