To further support the Continued Professional Development (CPD) needs of the growing population of Certified Human Resources Professionals (CPHRs), and in recognition of the quality of some of the HR professional development programs offered throughout BC, the Chartered Professionals in Human Resources of BC & Yukon (CPHR BC & Yukon) have introduced the CPHR BC & Yukon pre-approved CPD hours program.

Many of the  BC Municipal Safety Association’s training programs have been evaluated and endorsed by the Chartered Professionals in Human Resources of BC & Yukon (CPHR BC & Yukon). Information on available CPD hours are noted in the Course Catalogue.

Most of our training programs have been granted CEU’s from the Environmental Operators Certification Program (EOCP). Information on available CEU’s are noted in the Course Catalogue.

CEU’s are available retroactively, so if you have taken one of these courses and would like to submit them for credits, please contact us for the form.

Participants are provided with an EOCP Evaluation form at the training session. For those who are EOCP-certified, please note that it is the responsibility of your organization, or the individual EOCP member, to forward a copy of the form to EOCP to ensure the appropriate Continuing Education Units are credited to his/her name, and to pay any associated fees levied by the EOCP. The BC Municipal Safety Association will not provide this information or payment on their behalf.
