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 our regulated members are committed to serving the public and the profession by maintaining and developing their proficiency and competence. This program is intended to be flexible and to allow members to determine and select their own learning needs. We regulate our members in order to comply with the bylaws and regulations that require a mandatory CPD Program. 

Please note that because of COVID-19, there will be a "soft" roll out of CTTAM's CPD program in 2020 to members to allow them to familiarize themselves 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 the Association's annual general meeting. It is also important to note that there is no risk to certification status in 2020 if the C.P.D. requirements cannot be met (2 activities total reported from the four different categories).
