Every profession regulated under the Health Professions Act (HPA) is required to maintain currency in their practice and knowledge through a Continuing Competence (CC) program.

Click here for the 2021/2022 Continuing Education Activities List.
Click here for the Self-Directed Definitions List.

The CC Program engages members in a professional practice model that supports currency in practice through enhancement and expansion of knowledge and skills. Continuing competence fosters individual improvement and growth of professional practice, enhancing the level of service and care provided to Albertans.

All regulated members must meet the requirements of the (CC) program to renew their practice permit each year. The CC cycle follows the membership year from October 1 to September 30. Credits can only be applied to the cycle in which they were earned and cannot be pre-earned or carried over to a following cycle. Records of all activities must be kept for a minimum of five years.

Continuing Education Requirements for Credit Approval2022-09-07T15:31:01-06:00

To be considered continuing education, program and course providers must be approved by the College.

The College recognizes two types of continuing education providers:

  1. Education institutions (either already offer entry-to-practice education and those that do not)
  2. Seminar and conference providers who offer high-quality continuing education opportunities

Approval must be sought and granted before the activity occurs.

CE providers or regulated members of the College may apply to have an activity approved for CE credit by using this CE Approval Request Form.
