Continuing Professional Development

In March 2015, the provincial government announced an enhanced licensing system for BC’s residential builders.  All general contractors are required to take Continuing Professional Development as a condition of their renewal.


The VRCA is excited to announced that it now offers classroom courses that have been approved by BC Housing Licensing and Consumer Services (formerly Homeowners Protection Office) for points towards Continuing Professional Development upon successful completion.

Stay tuned! The VRCA is in the process of securing Licensing and Consumer Services approval of several online courses.
