Registration Renewal Reminder
As of February 17, 2021, almost half of our close to 2,400 OTs have completed their registration renewal for 2021-2022, and 386 OTs are in the process of completing their renewal.
If you are one of the 1,000 OTs who has not started their registration renewal, be sure to renew your registration before February 28, 2021 to avoid having your practice permit cancelled.
The online system can get quite busy and slow down during the last few days of February, so we strongly encourage you to renew as soon as possible. Several resources have been prepared to support you through the process of renewal including how to complete your 2020-21 and 2021-22 Continuing Competence Program (CCP) submissions, and how to navigate the online system. These resources can be found in the CCP Resources section of the ACOT website.
If you plan to cancel your registration for any reason, please login to the system to cancel your registration before February 28th, otherwise a cancellation notice will be sent on March 2nd to your last employer we have on file. Instructions on how to renew or cancel your registration can be found in the Guide to Registration Renewal on the ACOT website.
IMPORTANT: Whether you are renewing or cancelling your registration, you are required to complete the mandatory modules on prevention of sexual abuse and sexual misconduct and document your learnings from these modules in a Learning Record within your 2020-21 Learning Plan. If you have already paid for your 2021-22 practice permit but have not added a Learning Record about the modules to your 2020-21 Learning Plan, your submission has been returned to you to do so. Any registrant that has not recorded completion of these modules in their 2020-21 Learning Plan by February 28, 2021 will be notified by mail and will have 30 days to comply with this requirement.
If you have any questions about registration renewal, cancellation, completion of your CCP submission, or adding your mandatory modules learning record, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note: it can take up to 10 business days if renewal approval is required if you have profile updates such as a name change or addition of an employer that is not currently in our system.
Continuing Competence Program Review & Evaluations Resuming
ACOT’s governing legislation requires us to select a sample of OT’s Continuing Competence Program (CCP) submissions periodically for review and evaluation (formerly known as audits). We are preparing to resume this practice in 2021 and will be posting the policies and procedures for this on our website soon.
