The BOC BULLETIN is published bi-annually for BOC Graduates and their employers. In addition to features, industry updates and graduate profiles, each issue features a technical article linked to an online quiz. Graduates are eligible for 1 maintenance point per quiz passed. Issues prior to 2010 have the quiz contained within the publication, which can be mailed in with your maintenance application.

Please note that some technical articles are too long for hard copy publication. Full-length article links are below and contain information covered in the Bulletin’s quiz.
