      FB logo

      Deferment of renewal requirements for Singapore Green Mark Professional Qualification Scheme for year of practice 2020/21

      Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a key requirement of the SGBC Green Mark Professional Qualification Scheme to ensure that Green Mark Accredited Professionals (GMAPs) continue to maintain knowledge and skills aligned with current industry and regulatory developments.

      All qualifications under the SGBC Green Mark Professional Qualification Scheme require annual renewal. Renewal of qualifications is granted only upon the fulfilment of requisite CPD points for the respective qualification. For more information on the SGBC Green Mark Professional Qualification Scheme, please visit the Frequently Asked Questions.

      Change in 2020 Renewal Requirements for Green Mark Professional Qualifications expiring 30 June 2020

      In view of the current COVID-19 situation and cancellation of most CPD events, the renewal of Green Mark Professional Qualifications that are expiring on 30 June 2020 will be deferred by 1 year to 30 June 2021. Renewal fees for 2020 will also consequently be waived.

      To qualify for the deferment, GMAPs are required to complete the following actions:

      • Update personal profile, academic qualification, career history and competencies by 31 May 2020.
      • Update CPD activities that have been undertaken in the current CPD year as the points will be brought forward to the next year. CPD activities include completed Green Mark projects, relevant Masters degree/ Doctorate programmes, research publications, seminars and courses.
      • CPD points that have been earned in current CPD accumulation period (01 June 2019 – 31 May 2020) will be carried forward in full to the next CPD accumulation period (01 June 2020 – 31 May 2021).

      All GMAPs are required to log in to the SGBC-GMAP portal and update profile details by 31 May 2020, failing which the account will be made dormant and deactivated.

      For a guide on updating CPD activities, click here.

      Continuation of CPD Events (with control measures) and Shift to e-Learning Platforms

      SGBC continues to seek avenues for GMAPs to continue their professional development. Seating capacities for physical seminars will be scaled-down to take into account social distancing recommendations and refreshments will be served individually.

      SGBC’s CPD programmes are in the midst of being shifted to online platforms and more information will be provided in due course.

      As an added option for professional development, GMAPs may enrol in e-learning programmes offered by the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) as SGBC has reciprocal CPD arrangements with GBCA. CPD points awarded by GBCA will be recognised in full by SGBC’s Green Mark Professional Qualification Scheme. Reciprocal arrangements are being made progressively with other GBCs and further information will be provided when arrangements have been finalised.

      For more information on enrolling in GBCA's e-learning programmes and upload of CPD points, click here.
