CONTINUING EDUCATION

CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS

Continuing Education is an important chapter within any health care profession. It provides members with the ability to enhance their knowledge and performance of skills to ensure the continued practice of competent care.

 

After their first year's membership, our members enter a two-year cycle of fulfilling our continuing competency program. The participation in the Continuing Competency Program is compulsory.

 

The Continuing Education Committee utilizes a system of continuing competency credits in order to give more flexibility to continuing-education possibilities, since the opportunities for continuing education within our province are currently very limited. Within each 2-year cycle, each member must achieve 40 hours of continuing competency credits within. If a member does not achieve the requirements of the continuing competency program, they risk losing their membership.
