Between us we have over 50 years of experience working with standards and assessment for regulated professions in Canada.
We are applying our knowledge, skills and experience to address Continuing Professional Competence and the problem it creates for professional regulatory bodies.
Is it a problem? Well, ask yourself:
What is Continuing Competence for a professional?
When we ask others this question, here are the sorts of things that are offered in response:
- That’s about maintaining your skills, right?
- It means taking CE courses…so many hours per year…
- It’s the same as quality assurance, isn’t it?
- Staying current, that’s it!
Actually, the correct answer is none of the above!
Continuing Competence is fundamentally different from entry-to-practice competence.
All regulators are familiar with entry-to-practice competence, which is the gateway into a profession, and which is implemented and managed as a “one size fits all” standard.
But across a registrant body, and beyond entry-to-practice, continuing competence is more of a “moving target” – how do you manage that?
We have the Solution:
The Framework applies across registrant categories, across practice settings and even across professions!
Our solution provides a structure for regulatory programs that serves the public interest, meets the needs of the regulator, and resonates meaningfully with registrants.
