PAPTAC as vehicle for engineers' continuing professional development requirements


Most Engineering Orders in Canada have mandatory continuing professional development requirements as a condition for license renewal. Professional Development is defined as any activity that helps one maintain the required standard of professional competence and remain current in their chosen field of practice. Activities such as conferences, courses, workshops, on-line training, tradeshows, committee participation, publishing articles in technical journals, preparation and presentations at technical conferences, etc. offered by technical societies such as PAPTAC are recognized vehicles towards logging these mandatory professional development hours.
"For me this is a great membership asset as I get to participate to PaperWeek and learn the latest on the industry, while being able to log this against my required professional development hours for the Quebec Order of Engineers" - Marie Dumontier, Eng.

It is the order's member responsibility to develop and maintain his/her knowledge and competency skills, and report the necessary PD hours to his/her Order. PAPTAC membership provides you the necessary platforms to meet at least some of these requirements. Check out the Events calendar and plan to attend those activities that will support your continuing education and your Orders PD requirements.
