In BC, to construct new homes or to carry out building envelope renovations, you must first become a licensed builder. This applies to general contractors, developers and building envelope renovators throughout the province.

All general contractors wishing to renew their licence to build single-family homes and small residential buildings in the province must also take Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training. Please contact BC Housing directly if you have any questions about your license.

Here’s a summary of what you’re required to do for BC Housing Continuing Professional Development:

  1. You need a total of 40 points to maintain or renew your residential builder license.

  2. At least 20 of those points being met through training, the rest can be met through research and other areas of professional development including ‘active practice’ points.

  3. Over 50 per cent of your CPD must be in one or a combination, of the following areas:

  • Relative enactments (BC Building Code)

  • Construction management and supervision

  • Construction technology

  • Customer service and home warranty insurance

Blue House Energy’s online training, Construction Technology, qualifies for 15 CPD points through BC Housing, fulfilling a good portion of the needed subject requirements.

If you are a member of Built Green Canada, you can get a 30% discount, plus, your successful completion of Construction Technology fulfills your continuing education requirements.
