The Continuing Competence Program was developed under the direction of the Regulated Forestry Profession Act to provide for regulated members to maintain competence and to enhance the provision of professional services.
As a regulated member, your reporting requirements under the CC Program are:
- 75 hours per reporting period, 45 of which shall be Category 1; Structured Learning
- A reporting period consists of the current reporting year, Oct 1 to Sept 30, including the past two reporting years.
- The period for you to earn credits closes on the last day of September each year. You are allowed a grace period of 2 weeks following the September 30 deadline to report your credits until October 15 of each year.
All reporting is done online. Paper submissions are no longer used. Reporting can be done in the members section at www.capft.ca, by logging in with your personal log in name and password.
The CC reporting system will not allow entries past the due date. If you have missed the due date, please contact the CAPFT office at email@example.com or 780.761.8733, to request assistance.
Annual, internal audits are conducted, on 10% of the membership, to ensure compliance and effectiveness. Members audited are randomly selected, and will not be audited more frequently than once every 3 years.
