Audit of the Continuing Competence Program
For the annual audit of the Continuing Competence Program (CCP), 242 regulated members were selected to submit their CCP for audit by the Competence Committee. Of this audit sample, 7 regulated members were directed to audit by the Registrar and Competence Committee with the remaining names on the list a random computer-generated sample. Email notification was sent out to these members (at the email address provided to the College) on June 1.
As requested, the audited members must provide, via the mandatory CCP platform, their self-assessment, learning plan and hours of reflective learning. Provision to the College is completed by the selected members pressing the submit button that will be populated into their My CCP platform on September 1. The My CCP system will send the 2017/18 cycle for review even though the new cycle will have started. Only at this time will the College be able to see the regulated member’s detailed CCP entries.
- The College can only view the CCP cycle for which the regulated member is being audited. All other cycles remain confidential.
- During an audit process, the College does not have access to any non-audited member’s detailed CCP entries. These are entirely confidential.
A member’s submission is pre-screened by the Director of Education who provides feedback and guidance to the member in order to increase the member’s chance of success on this audit. (This is a further example of the College’s attempts to ensure all members are properly supported and guided within their regulatory obligations.) If you are being audited, please watch your email for your feedback and respond to the College with direction as to how to proceed.
From this screening, the members’ submissions are provided to the Competence Committee in October to conduct the actual audit. Members are notified of their result, and any required follow up, within two weeks of the process.
