You are now only required to submit your total CPD hours once per year. CPD hours for each calendar year must be submitted by January 31st of the following year.

To submit your CPD hours:

CPD Tracking Tools

To help you keep track of your CPD hours two tools are available on the ‘My CPD Hours’ page of your profile. The Certified Education Hours is a record of your CPHR BC & Yukon event registrations and Self-Reported Hours is a space for you to manual record your professional development activities outside of CPHR BC & Yukon.

These tools are for your own tracking purposes. Do not submit this information unless you are audited.

CPD Audit

All CPHR members are subject to an audit on an annual basis which is carried out by the Audit Committee up to twice a year. Selection for an audit is randomly based on CPHR ID numbers. If audited, the CPHR member must provide supporting documents for their CPD activities to the committee within 30 days. The audit process will verify the appropriateness, suitability and adequacy of the professional development activities listed in provided documentation. Find out more about CPD Audits.
