CES Countdown | Deadline Extended: September 30, 2020
The AIBC’s Continuing Education System (CES) was introduced in 2001 in response to the profession’s recognition of its own needs and the public’s increasing expectation that architects remain current with contemporary technology, business practices, methods and materials.
The requirement to comply with the CES was adopted as AIBC Bylaw 30.2, by member vote at the 2001 AIBC Annual Meeting and approved thereafter by the provincial government.
All architects and architectural technologists (“CES Participants”) are required to earn 36 Learning Units every two years, consisting of “Core” and “Non-core” units as designated by the AIBC. As of July 1, 2020, and thereafter, the CES Participant category will also include Intern Architects AIBC.
2018–2020 Reporting Period Deadline Extension
The current CES reporting period covers July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent cancellations of several AIBC professional development opportunities, the deadline has been extended until September 30, 2020. Personalized letters were sent to each CES Participant based on their current compliancy status. The letter outlines the impacted processes and addresses any unique circumstances, such as for new registrants, or those completing their CES obligations via the Canadian reciprocity option.
