Excerpt from OWCB Certification Policy, Appendix 5 – Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Policy
In our ever-changing technological environment, the public expects that technologists, technicians and technical specialists keep informed of the latest developments related to the services they provide. Public expectations are supported in the ASTTBC Code of Ethics first principle that all members hold paramount the safety, health and welfare of the public, the protection of the environment and the promotion of health and safety within the workplace. This is achieved through principle 6: Members of ASTTBC shall keep informed to maintain proficiency and competence, to advance the body of knowledge within their discipline and further opportunities for the professional development of their associates. To uphold these membership principles, we must keep informed by participating in various lifelong learning or continuing professional development (CPD) activities.
Effective January 2015, ASTTBC members will be required to record a summary description of CPD activities and the CPD hours earned each calendar year.
