2018 Continuing Competency Reminders
If you hold an Active registration at any point during the registration year, you are required to complete competency. If you have been on a leave or will be taking a leave, ensure that you are up to date on your educational requirements.
2017/18 Learning Plan Competency Completion
A total of at least 9 credits must be completed in your Learning Plan. Three of these credits must be from Bands D, L or M. You will enter your Activities, provide the date completed, upload any relevant documents and provide your detailed summary of learning. This will complete the Activity and once your credit requirements have been met you can move on to the next step in the renewal process.
2018/19 Self-Assessment (SA)
A self assessment is a process by which you review the ACCLXT Competency Profile and/or the ACCLXT Standards of Practice to help you recognize and select your desired learning goals.
Annually, prior to registration renewal (ideally starting Dec 1), some questions to ask while working on your Self Assessment:
- Does this area apply to my current practice?
- Can I practice in this area safely with the knowledge I have?
- Am I new to this area?
- Would I like to enhance my knowledge in this area?
- Could I improve my practice by increasing my knowledge/skills in this area?
- Do I excel in this area and could I mentor others?
There is an optional Self Assessment tool (only applicable when using the Competency Profile) to self reflect and evaluate yourself as you move into a new registration year. Below are the links to the form(s).
2018/19 Learning Plan
Upon completion of your Self Assessment, you take all that information and select your desired Learning Goals. These goals help to complete your overall Learning Plan.
You will create your Learning Plan in the MyACCLXT database prior to renewing your Active permit and enter your Activities totaling a minimum of 9 credits, with 3 credits from Bands D, L or M.
The Continuing Competency Guide outlines the Activities that can be used, how many credits associated with each activity and what documentation is required.
