Professional Certification Renewal

Professionals that would like to renew their CanBIM Certification are required to maintain and enhance their knowledge, expertise, and competence through participating in courses, workshops, seminars or other industry-related events and activities.

Renewal Requirements

Applicants that do not meet the required professional experience and competencies are offered three (3) options to pursue:

  • Participation in online or in-class courses, workshops, or seminars
  • Attending conferences, symposiums
  • Conducting a presentation or teach a class
  • Writing and publishing an article, book or white-paper

Certified professionals must submit a completed CPD form by the certification expiry date noted in your personal account on the CanBIM website.

Calculating and accumulating CPD hours depends on the activity and varies based on applicant involvement. For a breakdown of CPD hour allowances see the CPD form. To maintain certification CanBIM has determined that the following CPD hours are required over a 2-year period (please note, in September 2018 CanBIM increased the number of required CPD hours to more appropriately reflect the level of competency required by industry).
