Continuing Competency Program

A primary responsibility of the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Manitoba is to ensure the continued competence of individual registrants and to enhance the performance of the profession overall. In compliance, the CASLPM has established a standing committee, the Continuing Competency Committee, that consists of two audiologists, two speech-language pathologists, and two public members, as directed by the Regulated Health Professions Act and the General Regulation 192.

All Full Regulated, Provisional Regulated and Non-Practising Regulated Registrants of the College are required to meet the obligations of the Continuing Competency Program.

Regulated Health Professions Act (RHPA) Jurisprudence Module

New and Provisional members of eight Manitoba Health Regulatory Colleges, including CASLPM, must complete the Regulated Health Professions Act Jurisprudence Module (JM) as part of their registration process as mandated in each of the Colleges’ legislations.

By completing the Regulated Health Professions Act Jurisprudence Module New Applicants and Provisional members of CASLPM will gain a greater knowledge of the regulatory framework that guides the Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology professions in Manitoba.

The module highlights the laws and standards that are regulated under the RHPA, providing one with a greater understanding of the scope of practice, and the roles and responsibilities of the College, member, and the employer. Ultimately, awareness of jurisprudence will assist in the provision of safe, competent, and ethical care.

Self-Assessment Form

All registrants must complete the Self-Assessment Form (SAF) yearly in Alinity. SAF will be available automatically starting January 1 each year, to be completed by the renewal deadline. CASLPM recommends that the members complete the Self Assessment Form at the beginning of the year so that this form can help members develop the learning plan for that specific year.

Continuing Competency Activity Tracking Record (CCATR)

The CCATR (or Learning Plan) is available here and contains extensive descriptions of the Competency Activities and the Allowable Continuing Competency Credit Hours. This form is only for personal reference and record keeping.
