Programme de formation professionnelle continue

CAHP|ACECP encourages members to:

  • maintain and enhance their professional competency
  • remain current with heritage conservation theory and methods of practice
  • foster cross-disciplinary understanding on an on-going basis.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program is voluntary and applies  to Professional members, although CAHP-Interns are welcome to participate.

The program’s key objectives are to:

  • Promote awareness among the membership of diverse learning opportunities and activities
  • Build upon CAHP’s strengths as a multi-disciplinary association by promoting cross-disciplinary knowledge, skills and discourse amongst members; and
  • Sponsor the development of learning activities concerning heritage conservation principles, practices and theories relevant to all heritage practitioners, as resources allow.


Three broad categories of educational activities include:

  • Events (Conferences, , Online workrooms, Symposia, Lecture series etc.)
  • Self-Directed Learning (Environmental scans, reading publications, sister organization’s articles, technical and material briefs etc.)
  • Formal Learning (Courses, Training classes, workshops, eLearning, workplace updates etc.)

Members are encouraged to accumulate a minimum of 25 hours of Continuing Professional Development each year, with a minimum of 10 hours in each learning category.

Heritage-related activities claimed for credits under another professional continuing education program may also be reported in the CAHP Continuing Professional Development program.

The Continuing Professional Development Guide provides members with details about the program. Until an online Continuing Professional Development recording system is established, members can record activities on the Continuing Professional Development Recording Form.

Feedback from the membership is key to developing an effective and appropriate Continuing Professional Development program for all. Share upcoming events with us
