Earning Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours

Engineers will be able to apply LPD course completion to their CPD hours.

Beginning in January 2023, continuing professional development (CPD) will become a required component for professional engineers and limited licence holders to maintain their licence every calendar year. The new requirements, outlined in the new regulation section 51.2 of Regulation 941 under the Professional Engineers Act in Ontario, will take effect on January 1, 2023. This regulation section describes an annual requirement for continuing education and professional development and how PEO will administer, monitor and enforce this requirement.

Participants who meet all course completion requirements receive an official record of earned CPD hours on their certificates.
