Upcoming Workshops, Courses, and Events

Professional development and life-long learning are important cornerstones in the professional practice of College members.  Technological advances and rapid change ensure that professionals must actively participate in continuing education in order to remain competent and current in their chosen field of practice. To that end, the College requires that all registered and enrolled members complete at least 100 hours of continuing professional development (CPD) over a 3 year period. 

This section of the College web site contains announcements of events and information of interest to the membership to contribute to their continuing professional development. Information in this section is ordered by event date.  

The College makes no guarantees as to the quality or suitability of the courses offered by the institutions listed. Members are advised to use discretion to determine the relevancy of the events listed to their areas of practice, and must be prepared to demonstrate the relevancy of any activities for which CPD points are claimed.

Please contact the Registrar if you have information to be considered for posting to this page.
