Professional Development

One of YPG's more recent undertakings is the establishment of a Professional Development program,  guided by the principles outlined in the YPG Professional Development Guidelines.  The intent is that this program will help guide YPs in their personal and career development by identifying core skills and areas of interest. Feedback and ideas from our members on these topics is greatly appreciated.

Seminars are approximately 90 minutes in length, and may be applied towards APEGBC Continuing Professional Development hours.
