Professional Enhancement Program (PEP)

The Professional Enhancement Program is a voluntary quality assurance program offered free of charge to certified members of CSMLS. A PEP certificate requires 60 hours of professional development over a consecutive two year period. At least half of those hours must be officially documented.

PEP’s structured approach takes the guesswork out of quality assurance yet provides enough flexibility to meet the unique needs of your professional practice. It recognizes a broad range of learning experiences that contribute to professional growth such as formal courses, participation on workplace committees and publication of scientific or lab-related articles.

Successful completion of the PEP demonstrates that you have the knowledge and the skills to perform to the highest professional standards. It is formally recognized by some provincial societies and regulatory bodies. Check with the society/regulatory body in your province.
