Continuing Education

Members are required to participate in the Continuing Education component in order to ensure their continuing competence and quality improvement, to address changes in practice environments, and to ensure members of the profession remain current with changes in technology, scope and standards of practice, and other relevant issues. The philosophy behind the Continuing Education component is one of lifelong learning and every member of the College has the responsibility to formulate a personal plan for regular continuing education.

Continuing education criteria and the number of continuing education hours members are required to obtain in every three-year period are detailed in the College’s Continuing Education Policy, which outlines the requirements that must be met by members in the current three-year continuing education cycle.

A random auditing process following the end of every three-year Continuing Education Cycle helps ensure that members are meeting the requirements.
