Driving plays an enormous role in maintaining an independence in North American culture. Enabling a client to drive safely and be able to participate in their daily activities is very rewarding.

CCP Review and Evaluation

CCP Review and Evaluation

According to Section 14(1) of the Occupational Therapists Profession Regulation, ACOT’s Registrar or Competence Committee must periodically select registered members of ACOT for a review and evaluation of all or part of a member’s Continuing Competence Program (CCP) submission.  This review and evaluation process is to be done in accordance with criteria established by Council.

ACOT’s Council has approved the following Policies and Procedures for both review and evaluation of individual CCP submissions as well as review and evaluation of the CCP as a whole. The CCP Submission Rubric outlines the criteria for how each section of an OT’s CCP Submission will be reviewed for acceptability.

Note, as the Review & Evaluation process is new for 2021, the documents linked below are subject to further refinements.

Practice Visits (Competence Assessments)

Section 14(2) of the Occupational Therapists Profession Regulation also allows for Practice Visits if a regulated member does not comply with ACOT’s CCP Requirements. The Policies and Procedures for Practice Visits (to be renamed Competence Assessments per amendments to the Health Professions Act) will be posted here when they have been approved by ACOT Council.
