Mandatory Training - Bill 21

Members are reminded that completion of the Trauma Informed Practice training is required for registration renewal for 2021.  Your renewal application will not be approved without providing proof of this training.  A certificate will be available for printing at the end of the course. Please upload this certificate when you are completing the renewal process.

As part of the amendments to the Health Professions Act last year, in the form of Bill 21: An Act to Protect Patients, education on trauma informed practice was mandated for all regulated members in Alberta. Bill 21 was the piece of legislation that speaks specifically to sexual abuse and sexual misconduct perpetrated to patients by regulated members.  Our definition of a patient is currently included in the Standards of Practice.

Tips for Successfully Completing the Course

Tips on completing this training successfully are below. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the College.

  1. Use of a desktop computer or tablet is recommended for this course. Mobile compatibility has been inconsistent.
  2. The suggested browser for completing this course is Google Chrome. Users may encounter issues when using Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Internet Explorer or Safari.
  3. Ensure your browser is set to allow pop-ups in order to have the print dialogue box appear at the end of the course.
  4. The course must be completed in one sitting, prior to your renewal being approved.
  5. Be prepared to “Print” the “Certificate of Completion” at the conclusion of the course as you cannot access the print function later. Depending on your computer (or tablet) and software, this can be achieved through a variety of methods:
    • Print directly to your printer.
    • If a printer is unavailable, still select “Print”, and you will be presented with some print to file options you can use to save the certificate on your desktop or in a file folder to print later.
    • Right click on the certificate, then select “Save As” and save the certificate to your desktop or a file folder then retrieve later to print.
    • Right click on the certificate and select “Copy image” then paste the image into a blank word document which you then save and retrieve later to print. Ensure that you see your certificate in the document, and not just a link, before saving and exiting the course.
    • Take a screen shot of your certificate and paste it into a blank Word document (CTRL+ALT+Print Screen, then CTRL+V in the blank Word document).
    • Take a photo or screen shot of the certificate with your cell phone or other mobile device.

You are reminded that you can use however much time it takes you to complete this course towards your Continuing Competence Program (CCP) requirements. For further information on allowable CCP activities, please visit the CCP Program Guide available on the website.
