The College unveiled last week its revised Continuous Professional Learning (CPL) Program launching in July. Approved by the College Council in early April, the revamped program now includes member education on sexual abuse prevention and a simplified CPL Portfolio that:
- Reduces the portfolio cycle from two years to one year
- Reduces the number of required professional learning goals from three to one goal per year
- Reduces portfolio components from three to two
The Sexual Abuse Prevention Program will be available to members as of July 2022. Members will also have access to the simplified CPL Portfolio components and resources at that time for voluntary use. The simplified CPL Portfolio will become mandatory for members beginning in July 2023.
The CPL Portfolio Cycle was revised based on member and stakeholder feedback and data collected since 2017. The portfolio continues to be grounded in self-reflection, self-directed learning and the Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice
