Renewal Requirements - British Columbia


The ECE One-Year, ECE Five-Year, and ECE Assistant licenses to practice all have different renewal requirements. The ECE One-Year license to practice must be renewed after one year by submitting an application and a letter outlining what prevented the applicant from completing the 500 hours of work experience and competency reference letter.  

Effective November 2009, 40 hours of professional development (PD) is required every five years for an ECE licence; completion of an additional credit course in Early Childhood Education is required for an Assistant ECE licence.  A renewal form, confirmation of 400 hours work experience, a character reference and proof of PD must be completed and submitted to the Registry's office.  Renewals may be made online or by mail using a paper application. There is no fee to apply to renew certification. See renewal forms available on the website.
