12 Days Left to Renew Your Permit
Thank you to over 1200 OTs who have already started or renewed their practice permits, we appreciate the renewals! To renew your permit, access the Registrant Login to the online platform at www.acot.ca.
Be sure to renew before February 28, 2023, to avoid having your practice permit cancelled. If you miss renewal – Your practice permit is cancelled, and you can’t work until your application is approved.
Note: it can take up to 10 business days if renewal approval is required. This happens if you have profile updates such as a name change or addition of an employer that is not currently in our system. Be sure to start your renewal well before the end of February.
Issues with Mandatory, 2022 National eLearning Module
The national eLearning module is used by OTs all over Canada. At this time we have been informed that the platform it was developed on is having slowing and stopping issues likely due to the volume of people taking the course.
ACOT recommends giving yourself more than two hours to complete the mandatory training. You must complete the online module prior to renewing your practice permit. Note the system may slow down more when we approach the end of February and extra user volume, so please complete the training and your renewal early.
You can access the eLearning module here: https://ot-elearning.skillbuilder.co/
Ensure a completed status: The system provides ACOT with the names of those who have completed the modules, so there is no need to add the module reflection worksheet to your ACOT continuing competence program (CCP) Learning Plan. Although you are welcome to add them into your CCP if you wish for your own tracking purposes. To receive a completed status and the Recognition certificate, you must complete all 3 steps in the pathway, which includes the survey.
