With the new year upon us, there are officially only six months left until the June 30, 2020 CES reporting period deadline.
The AIBC is committed to the success of CES Participants in completing their educational requirements. The Institute helps individuals successfully meet the continuing education deadline by providing a variety of resources, from the AIBC events calendar, bulletins, guidelines, and more. An overview of each of these resources can be found below.
AIBC Events Calendar
The AIBC’s calendar of events is a great place to find a wide variety of learning opportunities. Displayed in a month-by-month format, the calendar displays all courses and sessions that are delivered by the AIBC, as well as external learning opportunities, such as Recognized Educational Provider courses. If you are interested in a specific subject-area or topic, you can search for keywords within the calendar. Including a city in the keyword search will show events taking place in specific locations. In addition, you can also search by date or choose a filter to display certain types of learning opportunities.
Continuing Education System (CES) Webpage
Featuring a real-time CES countdown clock until the June 30, 2020 deadline, the CES webpage contains all of the pertinent documentation and information you need to know for your continuing education requirements, including bulletins and guidelines.
Bulletin 80 and 81
Bulletin 80: Mandatory Continuing Education System (CES) outlines all requirements for CES Participants, as well as examples of Core and Non-core topic areas (found as an Appendix).
Bulletin 81: Mandatory Continuing Education System (CES) Canadian Reciprocity Option outlines the reciprocity option for Architects AIBC. Bulletin 81 states that any Architect AIBC who is both registered in another Canadian Licensing jurisdiction and is compliant with their mandatory continuing education system is deemed to be compliant with AIBC’s CES. Please note a declaration is required to be submitted each reporting period.
The CES Guidelines were created to capture procedural and administrative information. The Guidelines can be referred to for practical examples and step-by-step procedures, such as how to log-in and self-report activities. Please note that the Guidelines are supplementary to the regulatory information found in Bulletin 80 and Bulletin 81.
The webpage is also a great place to find more information about the variety of CES Opportunities which are available to earn LUs, such as:
- AIBC courses
- Recognized Educational Provider (REP) Program
