APEGGA has long recognized the importance of lifelong learning
through the Continuing Professional Development Program.
Now, The PEGG has launched a new section to help make the
search for PD opportunities simpler and more productive.
We’re here to help members fulfill their professional
obligations, and one of those obligations is to keep one’s
knowledge and skills up-to-date in an increasingly complex
and technological world,” said Nancy Toth, APEGGA’s
professional development manager. “This new section
is the complete package – paid advertising from private
professional development providers, APEGGA-sponsored events,
and listings of coming events of a professional development
nature, all on consecutive PEGG pages, each month.”
Stories about professional development and PEGGasus, a new
online PD marketplace, will also appear in the section from
time to time.
In the past, The PEGG published several calendars of events
in the back of the paper. From now on, courses, and seminars
from technical societies, universities and other providers
will fall under a single calendar, called Professional Development
Opportunities. A subsection will cover APEGGA events, such
as branch and district luncheons.
An even more extensive selection of professional development
events appears online. Visit the APEGGA site at www.apega.ca and the online marketplace PEGGasus at www.peggasus.ca.
It’s important to note that APEGGA does not give blanket
accreditation of professional development offerings for the
Continuing Professional Development Program. It’s up
to individual members to calculate their CPD points according
to what pertains to their specific careers, as well as maintain
their personal records.
If you have questions about how CPD works, call Cathy Ladouceur,
CPD coordinator, at (780) 426-3220 or 1-800-661-7020.
