CPL Questions & Answers

Does any part of my work experience count for learning units? No, day to day work activities are not considered to be part of the program of continuous professional learning and hence cannot be included as such.

Click here for the CPL Guide.

How do I determine what type of learning is required?

The core competencies defined for the planning profession in Canada, are required to be developed and championed by all Regulated Members throughout their careers and Members should use the core competencies to guide their learning choices.

How are the carry-over units calculated?

Each member must acquire and report 18.0 units each year, of which a maximum 9.0 units must be structured. Any surplus units reported will be carried over to the next reporting year, to a maximum of 9.0 units.
