Self-Assessment Guide and Continuing Professional Development Plan

Each member with a Certificate of Registration Authorizing Autonomous Practice with the College of Psychologists of Ontario is required to undertake a self-review every other year, through the completion of the Self-Assessment Guide and Continuing Professional Development Plan.  Members with even registration numbers complete the forms in the even-numbered years. Members with odd registration numbers complete the forms in the odd-numbered years. Members with Certificate of Registration Authorizing Supervised Practice are required to complete the Self-Assessment Guide and Continuing Professional Development Plan every year.

Members with a Certificate of Registration Authorizing Interim Autonomous Practice who are in compliance with the self-assessment requirements in their home jurisdictions will be provided with the option of attesting to the fulfillment of those requirements, in lieu of the Ontario Self-Assessment Guide and Continuing Professional Development Plan. In the event that their home jurisdiction does not have self-assessment requirements, or they are not in compliance with those requirements, they must complete the Self-Assessment Guide and Continuing Professional Development Plan on an annual basis.  

Please note that members with an Inactive Certificate of Registration are required to complete the Self-Assessment Guide and Continuing Professional Development Plan. Since it is anticipated that inactive members will be returning to Active status, it is expected that steps will be taken to remain current in one’s areas of competence during the inactive period.

Members with a Retired Certificate of Registration are not required to complete the Self-Assessment Guide and Continuing Professional Development Plan.

Unless specifically requested by the College, the entire Self-Assessment Guide and Continuing Professional Development Plan does NOT need to be submitted but is to be retained in your files for a minimum of five years. The Declaration of Completion is the College’s assurance and documentation that you are participating in the Quality Assurance Program.  If you are selected for an on-site Peer Assisted Review, the reviewers will wish to see this material.
