Latest Continuous Professional Learning (CPL) Updates

The PIBC Continuous Professional Learning (CPL) System is designed to be user-friendly and flexible for professional members while accomplishing the collective goals of the Institute and its membership – to maintain the highest professional standards and latest knowledge, understanding, skills and abilities relevant to the theory, methods, and practice of professional planning in BC and Yukon. Key attributes of the CPL system include flexibility and easy online reporting of CPL activities by members.

Helpful Quick CPL Links for Members


COVID-19 Update

To support accessible CPL opportunities for members PIBC offers (and will continue to offer) a variety of online webinars and other virtual content throughout the year. 

In addition to PIBC’s online webinars and learning activities, members can also access relevant learning opportunities from other external organizations, including on-demand CPL content through CIP's Professional Learning HUB and OPPI's Digital Learning Site as examples.
 

PIBC 2021 Annual Conference Sessions & CPL Reporting

All regular conference sessions from PIBC’s 2021 online annual conference are eligible for CPL credits that can be reported by members. Each session, whether viewed live during the conference or through subsequent recordings, can be reported only once for CPL credits. Subsequent re-watching of a session cannot be reported again for additional CPL credits.

Members looking to report 2021 PIBC 2021 annual conference sessions for CPL credit should look for the “PIBC 2021 – BCCCON21” items to select in the “Home Affiliate Events” drop-down menu of learning activities found on the online CPL reporting form.

Members wish to login and access the online CPL reporting form should click here to go to the PIBC Member Login page.
 

Technical Issues with Online Reporting

To minimize the possibility of technical problems during the online CPL reporting process, members should be sure to accept the PIBC website and cookies policy if prompted when visiting the PIBC website to login. Additionally, members are encouraged to enter and save each CPL activity individually to avoid the potential for data to be lost if there is a problem with the online reporting form.

Members who encounter any significant technical issues with the online reporting form should contact PIBC right away for assistance. 

For technical online issues, you can send us your CPL reporting information (such as who hosted the event, the title of the event, when and where details, etc.) in an Excel spread sheet and email to office@pibc.bc.ca, if needed. This information must be submitted and received in good order and on time. For any questions or to submit CPL reports separately, please email office@pibc.bc.ca.
 

CPL Reporting Exemptions

Members, including newly approved Candidate Members, are reminded to report their CPL activities and learning units regularly and on time before the December 31st deadline each year. Members are strongly encouraged to report each of their activities as they complete them throughout the year to avoid any last-minute end-of-year reporting rush. 

Members are also reminded that only members who have applied for and been granted leave from active membership by PIBC, or who have otherwise requested and been granted a specific one-time waiver due to extenuating individual circumstances, may be exempt from CPL reporting requirements for a particular limited period of time.

Additionally, members with certain membership status or within certain membership categories (as designated by the Board) are exempt from the CPL requirements. These include: Student members, Retired members, Pre-Candidates, Honourary members and members formally granted leave from active membership.
