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.

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.
