In the interests of protecting the health, safety and welfare of the public, it is essential for professionals to engage in lifelong learning. Society's expectations have changed, and the public is demanding greater accountability from professionals. That is why, in 1997, APEGA Council established the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Program.

The General Regulations under the Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act require that all professional members and licensees comply with the CPD Program.

Mandatory continuing professional development is common in many professions. In most provinces, the engineering and geoscience regulatory organizations have moved towards mandatory requirements.
