One of the first steps you should take in the new Continuing Competence Program is to review the mandatory CCP tutorial. This tutorial is available in the Self-Assessment/Prescribed Activities section of the CCP web portal. The web portal records that you have completed the tutorial. Once this prescribed activity has been completed, a green checkmark should appear beside Self-Assessment/Prescribed activity on the CCP portal homepage.
Reviewing the tutorial is one of the three requirements you must complete to be eligible to renew your practice permit for the upcoming registration year. You will not be able to complete online renewal until you see three green checkmarks in the progress indicator on the left hand side of the CPP web portal homepage.
Am I required to complete a Learning Record for reviewing the tutorial?
The CCP web portal will keep track of whether you have completed the CCP tutorial, so you are not required to complete a Learning Record for this prescribed activity. However, you are welcome to complete one and claim non-accredited CEUs for completing this learning activity. View an example of a Learning Record for this activity.
What are the three requirements of the new Continuing Competence Program?
To complete the new Continuing Competence Program, all pharmacists on the clinical register must:
- Complete at least 15 CEUs during the CE cycle (June 1-May 31) and document each activity on a Learning Record.
- Implement at least one CEU worth of learning into your practice and document this on an Implementation Record.
- Complete any prescribed learning assigned by the Competence Committee. This year, the prescribed learning is reviewing the CCP tutorial.
Pharmacists can access all CCP materials through the CCP web portal on the ACP website.
