Do you have an interest in ensuring Albertans receive safe and competent OT services? Perhaps you’re interested in the measurement and evolution of ACOT’s continuing competence program? If so, we invite you to submit an expression of interest to become an ACOT Competence Committee member. As ACOT evolves this Committee from an ad hoc to a standing entity, we are looking for up to ten OTs to continue the important work started by the ad hoc Committee, with orientation targeted for November 2019. Please refer to the role description/expression of interest for further information.
Continuing Competence Program (CCP) Resources
With the updated ACOT Continuing Competence Program going live on October 11, 2019, we have developed multiple resources to help guide you through the program. These resources will be posted on ACOT’s web site by the end of October – if you’re eager to see the resources before then, contact Angela.Sekulic@acot.ca for an advance copy. You can also give us a call at 780-436-8381 if you would like assistance walking through the new version of the program.
CCP Education Session Dates
We have multiple dates available for CCP education over the coming months – if you have a group of OTs that would like us to come out to your site in person during one of these days/times or at a different time, let us know by contacting Angela.Sekulic@acot.ca and we’ll coordinate with you to make it happen! When not on site with you, we will hold the session in the ACOT office in Edmonton, with a Skype link provided closer to the presentation date for those who would like to connect online.
