Training and Education Info


The Canadian Home Builders' Association of British Columbia recognizes that the decision to seek education must be seen as a business decision. The most effective way in which this can be achieved is through a certification program, at the end of which builders have something tangible they can use to promote their business, or through which they can affect savings. CHBA BC has invested considerable time, energy and dollars in developing one of North Americas first industry-driven self-certification programs.

The following courses are required courses for the Registered Housing Professional and Certified Residential Builders Certification as well as the Registered Renovation Professional and Certified Renovator Certificationprograms: BC Building Code - Single Family Dwellings, Construction Law, Financial Management, Marketing and Project Sales, Project Management and Site Supervision and Built GreenBC Builder Training. Five new courses including Business Planning and Management, Human Resources Planning and Management, Safe Work Practices, Communication and Negotiation and Sevice and Warranty will be required along with the required suite of courses to obtain the Registered Master Builder (RMB), Certified Master Builder (CMB) and the Graduate Master Builder(GRB) designations.
