Continuing education credits (CECs) are awarded for activities that meet all these criteria:
If an instructor is not currently a member of their regulatory body in the jurisdiction(s) where they practice, they are not appropriately credentialed. Association membership is not equivalent to a regulator’s good standing status, nor is it substantially equivalent to the status of a regulated health professional.
A curriculum vitae and support documents, as necessary, will be submitted with the application for course approval. Links to websites or a brief biography are inadequate.
While it may be difficult to determine that internationally credentialed instructors meet the required criteria, the College intends to confirm these criteria. It is the responsibility of the instructor(s) to assist in this process. Course approval may be delayed as a result.
PD CECs are granted for completion of online courses in practical education that meet all these criteria:
RMTs enrolled in a degree program at a university qualify for 14 PD CECs for completion of a standard three-credit university course that starts and ends in the time-frame of Cycle 12. The courses must meet these criteria:
Please note: If you plan to complete a university course in a degree program for which you are enrolled and wish to receive CECs, you must submit the Cycle 12 application form for pre-approval of university courses.
If your degree-granting program and proposed course are approved, you will receive confirmation from CMTBC. Store this communication and upload it via the Registrant Portal together with the transcript you receive after successful completion of your university course.
PD CECs are granted for verified participation in practice-oriented professional conferences that meet all these criteria:
A maximum of 7 CECs per day of a conference will be awarded in this category.
While CMTBC provides CECs for activities that meet the criteria for approval, the College cannot attest to the quality of the activities or of the instructors. Approval reflects confirmation that an activity meets published criteria for approval. On occasion, an element of a course’s content may fall outside RMTs’ scope of practice. It is also possible that a course approved early in the two-year reporting cycle changes during the cycle; this is especially true of courses (or components of a course) delivered online. It is always the individual registrant’s responsibility to select what is of value and will be transferred to his/her practice, within standards set by CMTBC.
