RMTs who hold Practising status for half or more of Cycle 12 are required to accumulate 24 CECs. Of those 24 CECS, 10 must be obtained from completion of CMTBC’s online course on the Boundaries and Consent standards of practice.
RMTs who hold Practising status for less than half of Cycle 12 – including RMTs who are Non-practising for all of Cycle 12 – are required to accumulate 12 CECs. Of those 12 CECs, 10 must be obtained from completion of CMTBC’s online course on the Boundaries and Consent standards of practice.
Here’s a chart that summarizes CEC requirements:
|Status||CMTBC’s online course required (deadline for completion October 31, 2020)||Remaining CECs required |
(in addition to completion of CMTBC’s online course)
|Practising for 12 months or more in Cycle 12|
|Practising for less than 12 months/Non-practising for 12 months or more in Cycle 12||Yes||2|
|Non-practising for all of Cycle 12||Yes||2|
|New RMT, registered for the first time with CMTBC in the first year of Cycle 12, before November 1, 2019||Yes||14|
|New RMT, registered for the first time with CMTBC in the second year of Cycle 12, on or after November 1, 2019||No, online course content is included in CMTBC’s entry-to-practice examination||0|
Detailed information on CECs is also in CMTBC’s Bylaws, Section 63.2.
Aside from receiving 10 CECs for CMTBC’s online course, RMTs receive CECs for completing continuing education activities in two categories:
The criteria for approval of continuing education activities explain the difference between the categories. Both categories are equal in terms of meeting College requirements.
There is no limit to the number of PD or PE credits that can be accumulated in Cycle 12. All 14 remaining required CECs (for RMTs with Practising status) or 2 remaining required CECs (for RMTs with Non-practising status) can be from PD or PE activities.
Search for approved PD or PE continuing education activities on the Approved Continuing Education Activities – Cycle 12 page.
The deadline to meet the CEC requirements by completing activities approved by CMTBC in Cycle 12 has been extended to October 31, 2021. This extension does not apply to the CMTBC online course on Boundaries and Consent, which must still be completed by October 31, 2020.
Failure to complete required continuing education will result in a non-compliance fee, in an amount set by CMTBC’s Bylaws.
