The Continuing Competence Program (CCP) fulfills CAP's regulatory and professional obligations as set out by the Health Professions Act and by our own Standards of Practice. Participation in the CCP is required for regulated members.
The CCP is a yearly program running from April 1 to March 31. Each year, members must engage in and document continuing competence activities that satisfy the requirements of the program. In general, the program requires the following minimums:
This equates to 24 hours total of declared activities per permit year.
At the beginning of the year, members set CCP goals for the upcoming year (April 1 - March 31). These goals can change over the year. At the end of the year, members confirm completed activities and provide supporting documentation. Members may update their CCPs throughout the year, including adding supporting documentation (via the MyCAP Login).
CAP has designed a series of webpages and resources to assist members in understanding and completing the CCP:
If you still have questions about the CCP, please reach out to us using the feedback form at the bottom of this page.
