Structured Learning

Structured Learning activities are organized educational sessions of a minimum one hour in length and must be supported by evidence of participation at the time the Continuing Education hours are logged. Acceptable forms of proof include a certificate, a diploma, a letter of attendance from the provider, etc.

The OAA uploads all ConEd hours for OAA-administered events. If you have a question about whether an event falls under this category, please contact OAA ConEd. OAA members will still be responsible for reporting ConEd hours received from third-party providers.

Proof of attendance must include the following:

  • presentation title, total time, and date of completion;
  • attendee’s name; and
  • provider’s name, logo, and contact info.

OAA members must self-report Continuing Education activities on the OAA Transcript. (Education providers do not have access to the OAA Transcript, and cannot report activities on OAA members’ behalf.)

Activities must be at least one hour in length and constitute these educational categories. Please note the maximum limit per cycle:

  • In-Person Learning
    Attendance in lectures, college or university courses, or Lunch & Learns.
    Architect: No maximum
    Non-Practising: No maximum
    Licensed Technologist OAA: No maximum

NOTE: Please be advised if your ConEd requirements were approved to be halved (due to being licensed mid-cycle, an approved on-leave status, or a licence reinstatement/reapplication with the OAA), then your Category Maximums will also accordingly be reduced to half.
