The Health Professions Act requires members to be registered and to hold a valid practice permit with the College in order to legally practice within the designated specialties in Alberta.
This information is specific to annual registration renewals and renewal processes. Online registration renewal for the upcoming year is available from October 1. The deadline to complete the registration renewal process without incurring an additional $150 administration charge is November 30. All renewal processes must be completed with the registration confirmation from the College before December 31 each year, in order to be licensed to practice as of January 1.
- December late renewal administrative fees
In 2017, the ACMDTT Council amended a policy to direct that late renewal fees would be increased from their previous $50 level. The fees will now be $150 on top of the $450 renewal fee for any renewals commencing on or after December 1, 2017. Members are strongly advised to renew within the College renewal window of October 1, 2017- November 30, 2017.
- Continuing Competence Program (CCP) analytics audit
The ACMDTT can now assess whether data have been entered into the online My CCP platform. This analytic tool will be used in September to identify any members who are attempting to renew without having completed their CCP.
- CCP completion for 2016/17 is expected to be completed by August 31, 2017.
- When certifying that you have completed your CCP in the declaration, if you have not done so, is defined as unprofessional conduct under the Health Professions Act, and may give rise to serious consequences.
- Registration will not be renewed for individuals who have not completed all of the requirements of their CCP under the Regulations.
- Your practice permit can be suspended, or have conditions imposed upon it if you attempt to renew, and have not completed the CCP requirements as set out in the regulations.
The College serves its function and duty under the Health Professions Act to ensure that members of the public are assured of receiving safe, competent and ethical care. This is achieved by regulated professionals who continuously strive for professional excellence, who continue to improve their competence, and who enhance the provision of professional services. Attending to CCP requirements is one important vehicle within the attainment of public safety.
