Quality Assurance Program FAQs

eLearning Module

Registrants who have already completed the eLearning module in advance of the ACCR 2024, will not have to complete the eLearning Module again. You will, however, still be required to complete the other components within the ACCR 2024. 

The following scenarios apply: 

A.    If you completed the eLearning Module with COTBC, via MY QAP, we can confirm your completion. 

 B.    If you completed the eLearning Module as part of a regulatory requirement from another province or authority (e.g. COTO, ACOT, etc.), we will follow up with those regulatory colleges on your behalf to confirm completion. Alternatively, if you would like to submit your eLearning module certificate of completion, please email it to us at info@cotbc.org 

 C.    If you are in progress with the eLearning Module, you can resume where you left off when you complete the ACCR 2024.  

If you do not complete your ACCR 2024 by the deadline of April 19, 2024, you cannot renew your registration for the 2024-2025 year. You cannot work or practice as an occupational therapist if you are not registered.

Registrant feedback varies; however, we typically hear it takes between 60-90 minutes. If you are collaborating in a group to complete it, you may want to plan extra time for discussion.

All registrants who plan to renew their registration under the full or provisional categories are required to complete the ACCR in order to finalize their registration. If you are currently non-practising, changing to non-practising or cancelling your registration as of July 1st then you are not required to complete the ACCR, but are still welcome to do so.

Registrants in non-traditional or non-clinical OT roles sometimes express concern that the ACCR won’t be relevant to their practice. It is a way to keep current with OT regulation and practice, even if you are working in a non-clinical or non-traditional OT role. And don’t forget, the College does not see your individual results.

No, the ACCR and Renewal are on separate platforms. They do not communicate passwords or password resets. You may choose to set your renewal password the same as your ACCR password, but it will not automatically update the other platform.

While reviewing the tabs in the Learning Resources and References section is not required as part of completing the ACCR for registration renewal, registrants are invited to explore them should they wish to learn more about the topics.

Upon completion, you will receive an email from COTBC Quality Assurance Program <cotbc@insitemessages.com> to confirm completion.

You can also check the status of completion of your 2024 ACCR in your My QAP Portal and navigate to the 2024 ACCR.
Once it opens, click “Achievements”.  Once completed, you see a green flag indicating completion.
