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. The Practice Quiz contains case-based scenarios and is designed for you to answer the questions before or after reviewing the relevant resources, such as a new standard or advisory statement. You have the ability to see if your answers are correct right away by reviewing the College responses. 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. In 2016, registrants were required to complete the Continuing Competency Exam (CCE) as part of the College’s Quality Assurance Program, and this can sometimes be confused with the Annual Continuing Competence Review (ACCR) process. The ACCR includes a Practice Quiz component with case-based scenarios and registrants receive a score on their responses, however the College does not see individual results.

Occupational therapists work in a multitude of roles, across various practice contexts. It would be difficult to capture all these environments in one, short practice quiz each year. The intent behind the practice quiz is to help occupational therapists learn about newly released standards, legislative changes, or practice issues significant to the delivery of safe, ethical and competent occupational therapy services. By completing the ACCR, you might be able to identify any gaps in your understanding and consider if/how they may relate to your specific area of practice or your general OT expertise.

Continuing competence is an important part of your practice. Competence involves the combination of your training, skills, attitudes, experience and knowledge and your ability to apply them to provide safe, effective and ethical occupational therapy services. Regulation of health professionals is part of the foundation of safe health care and ensures that trust in health professionals is maintained. At the heart of it, the public needs to be comfortable seeking care from health professionals and have confidence that these professionals are competent. Monitoring competence is one way in which the College meets its mandate to protect the public’s interest and participating in the College’s Quality Assurance Program allows registrants an opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to excellence in occupational therapy practice.

No. Registrants are required to complete the ACCR as part of the process for renewal but need to login to a separate system to complete the registration process. Registrants can login to the registration renewal system by clicking the ‘Registrant Login’ button located at the top right of this website. College staff will check the system for ACCR completions prior to finalizing your registration.

Registration renewal is only considered complete when you have finished the ACCR, submitted your renewal information form and payment has been received. The deadline for renewal is June 30.

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.
