A harmonized model for CEU reporting officially adopted

Published by Rachael Factor, April 30, 2012.

IDC and its member associations are pleased to announce that a new harmonized model for professional development has been officially adopted by all provinces.

One of many initiatives that the provinces are working on to ensure that standards are the same across Canada, this initiative will see all interior design professionals achieving the same number and quantity of continuing education and professional development credits on an annual basis. This standardization initiative was dealt with now to ensure that the new IDCEC online system was capable of managing the CEU tracking for all members who are required to report their learning to their provincial associations. By using common language and hourly systems, the new IDCEC system becomes much more universal and easier for both the member and the provincial administrator or registrar.

Effective with your province’s next cycle, the following professional development requirements will apply. A list of non-IDCEC CEU and participation requirements will be issued in June along with further instructions on how to use the new IDCEC online system to report your points to your provincial association.

Professional/Registered Members (per three year reporting cycle):

Minimum of 30 hours which includes a mandatory requirement of 15 IDCEC approved CEUs, of which 8 must be Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) hours.

08 hours (HSW)
07 hours (General)
15 hours

Intern/Provisional Members (per three year reporting cycle):

Minimum of 20 hours of which 5 are mandatory IDCEC approved Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) hours.

5 hours (HSW) 15 hours
