Continuing Competence

Section 50 of the Health Professions Act (HPA) mandates that:

  1. A council must establish, by regulation, a continuing competence program within 5 years from the date that the schedule to this Act with respect to the profession comes into force.
  2. A continuing competence program
    • must provide for regulated members or categories of regulated members to maintain competence and to enhance the provision of professional services, and
    • may, if authorized by the regulations, provide for practice visits of the regulated members or categories of regulated members.

Further to the HPA, the Denturists Profession Regulation outlines the requirements of the CCP for members.
