Appraisal Institute of Canada, Professional Practice Seminar

AIC Members are required to complete professional development credits as part of the Institute’s mandatory Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program. A mandatory component of the CPD program is the completion of the Professional Practice Seminar.

The Professional Practice Seminar:

  • Provides an update on changes to CUSPAP from one cycle to the next
  • Raises Member awareness and provides advice on key professional practice issues
  • Gives Members tools and information to empower them to achieve and maintain the highest standards of professional practice 

The course is designed and presented by designated AIC members and is delivered through UBC’s distance learning platform. Members may begin the course at any time and proceed at their own pace, providing they complete the course by the March 15, 2023 deadline. Designated AIC members receive 7 CPD credits upon successfully completing the PPS online course.

Course Overview

This course is divided into four modules:

  • Module 1: CUSPAP Changes 2022
  • Module 2: Insurance
  • Module 3: Complaint Resolution
  • Module 4: AIC Current Issues


To successfully finish the course, participants will need to complete a quiz at the end of each module achieving a passing grade of 60% or higher on Quizzes 1-3 and 100% on Quiz 4. If a passing grade is not achieved on any quiz, the participant must rewrite the quiz before proceeding. A $25 fee applies per rewrite attempt.

Once participants have successfully completed all of the modules and quizzes, proof of competition is automatically uploaded to the Appraisal Institute of Canada’s database provided you entered your AIC member number during registration.
