Changes to Board of Examiners Certification Requirements

The Board of Examiners is responsible for awarding certificates to local government employees who meet the standards of qualification in local government administration as prescribed by regulation. Following an extensive review, significant changes to the BOE Certification program will provide local government staff seeking certification with more options to satisfy core course requirements.

Specifically these changes will expand the number of available courses that local government staff can take to satisfy core courses 5 – 9; reflect the changes in the post-secondary landscape, and recognize the value of the quality courses in public sector leadership and management, and in local government administration, delivered by BC's educational institutions.

These changes do not affect the number of credit courses required for each level of certification, the number of certificates available, or core courses 1-4 (or equivalencies).

These changes are effective March 21, 2014.
