Eligible hours of study under the Regulation respecting mandatory continuing education for engineers
The hours devoted to studying for the OIQ’s Professional Examination can be counted as Continuing Education hours under the Regulation respecting the mandatory continuing education of engineers (available in French only).
The number of hours of study that may be reported is determined using the following formula: duration of the examination multiplied by a factor of 3. Therefore, because the OIQ’s Professional Examination lasts three hours, nine continuing education hours are admissible.
For the purposes of reporting hours to the OIQ, these hours are equivalent to a course organized or offered by the OIQ (1st paragraph of section 5).
Please note that these hours will not be eligible under the regulation if you do not succesfully pass your examination. Once you have passed your examination, the Order will add the nine hours to your file and an email will be sent to you. You will need to visit your portal to confirm this activity.
Make the most of your study efforts and take advantage of this benefit.
