All residential builders in British Columbia, building under Part 9 of the BC Building Code, need to meet BC Housing’s enhanced licensing system. Important note: Builders can only claim a maximum of 20 CPD points in informal training. Courses offered by HAVAN are considered informal learning. For information about acceptable training for CPDs, see the attached BC Housing document or call them directly at 604-646-7050.
CPD UPDATE: On March 7, 2019, BC Housing announced changes to the CPD process, which comes into effect on July 1, 2019. These changes are: active practice category for 20 points of CPD is removed; 20 CPD points are required instead of 40; and nominees may be able to carry up to 20 extra earned CPD training points over from one licence term to the next. Builders also no longer have to take a majority of CPD points in a particular category (known as “category A” in the current regulation). Click here for more information via the BC Housing website.
