2022 CCP Reminder

As we near the end of the year, the College is reminding registrants to complete their 2022 Continuing Competence Program (CCP).

All registrants (with the exception of those in the retired class of certificate of registration) are required to participate in the CCP as a condition of registration. This includes those who are not currently practising, in the inactive class of certificate of registration, on maternity, parental or sick leave, or who registered late this year. Registrants can be suspended if they do not complete the CCP.

As part of the 2022 CCP, registrants are required to review – along with the Standards of Practice – the following practice resources:

Visit the College website for more information on how to complete the CCP and for examples of learning activities.
