Practice standards give licensed professionals clarity and direction while increasing the quality of the work they do. This provides tangible value to licensed professionals and the public. In 2018, we modernized our
Authenticating Professional Work Products practice standard by adding sections on outsourcing and digital signatures. In 2019, we developed online training videos so licensed professionals would understand this mandatory aspect of their practice.
2,630 registrants completed the training with another 2,607 in progress
CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Our mandatory Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Program is the keystone in demonstrating APEGA’s commitment to maintaining the competency of our licensed professionals. The Professional Practice Department educates licensed professionals and reinforces the importance of doing and recording ongoing learning as a critical component of self-regulation and professional due diligence.
Licensed professionals must report professional development hours in three of six CPD categories each year and complete 240 hours over three years. In 2019, APEGA contacted 9,974 members—about 17 per cent of the professional membership—regarding compliance. Of those, we reviewed 112 submissions in detail, and we cancelled 75 licences for failure to comply with the CPD Program.
