Educational Credits

Continuing Professional Development is all about learning. Ongoing professional development activities enable you to:

  • Enhance your abilities.
  • Contribute to the acquisition of new knowledge.
  • Build familiarity with issues relevant to you in your roles.
  • Maintain and improve skills.
  • For the XXII World Congress on Safety and Health at Work, we will be using the standard set by the Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals (BCRSP).
    • The XXII World Congress on Safety and Health at Work contains 14.2 technical hours and may be eligible for BCRSP Continuing Professional Development points.*
    • This standard equates 1 Continuing Education Unit (CEU) to 10 contact/learning hours. This change will make it simpler to calculate hours, and simplifies the point claim for shorter courses whereby a 4-hour course is equivalent of 0.4 CEUs, an 8-hour course is 0.8 CEUs, etc.) For further details, please see the BCRSP website at for CPD point criteria.
      Other professional bodies may also offer CPD points for the Congress. Please check with your professional body for more details on how to obtain CPD points.
