Continuing Professional Development
CTTAM is a self-regulatory organization under the Certified Applied Science Technologists Act of Manitoba. Our Code of Ethics requires members to "Keep informed to maintain proficiency and competence, to advance the body of knowledge within their discipline and further opportunities for the professional development of the associates."
Our members are required to have a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program. Having a CPD program shows that you are committed to serving the public and the profession by maintaining and developing your proficiency and competence. This program is intended to be flexible and to allow you to determine and select your own learning needs. We regulate our members in order to comply with the bylaws and regulations that require a mandatory CPD Program.
Please note: Because of COVID-19, there has been a "soft" roll out of CTTAM's CPD program in 2020 to allow you time to familiarize yourself with the program and the requirements. Mandatory reporting of CPD activities will begin in 2021. Activities such as peer training, volunteering, employer provided training, all qualify for CPD credits as well as attending our annual general meeting.
It is also important to note that there is no risk to certification status in 2020 if the CPD requirements cannot be met (two activities total reported from the four different categories).
