Continuing Competence Program

CCP Activity Log (version 4.0)

NEW – Effective September 15, 2016 for the 2017 MLT Practice Permit renewal season.

To access your CCP Activity Log, select Update My CCP Activity Log via the Member login.

A fundamental component of the CCP is the recording of Learning Activities on the online CCP Activity Log. Annual completion of the CCP Activity Log is required to validate Learning Activities and is requested by the CMLTA in the event of a CCP Compliance Audit. While it is sufficient for Regulated Members to simply record and track the progress of Learning Objectives on their completed Learning Plans, the CCP Activity Log requests additional information to validate Learning Activities that were completed and the resultant impact on a Regulated Member’s professional practice. The online CCP Activity Log guides Regulated Members to input and save the required data and allows for the uploading of required supporting documentation, if applicable. The online CCP Activity Log requests the same data as listed on the Documentation Guidelines for Learning Activities.

The Documentation Guidelines for Learning Activities was developed to serve as a quick reference to the data elements requested during the completion of the online CCP Activity Log to validate Learning Activities.

It is an annual requirement to complete a CCP Activity Log, but only those individuals selected for a CCP Compliance Audit are required to submit their completed CCP Activity Log to the CMLTA.

Completing the CCP Activity Log

To highlight awareness and to emphasize the importance of maintaining a CCP Activity Log, the CMLTA developed an interactive online format for Regulated Members to record the information necessary to validate Learning Activities. Regulated Members can access the CCP Activity Log through their Member Login on the CMLTA website.

After selecting the desired Learning Objective from the corresponding Learning Plan year, Regulated Members select a suitable Learning Activity from the dropdown menu.

There are eleven categories of Learning Activities to choose from:

  • Reviewed subject matter relevant to area of professional practice (E.g. textbook, journal, article, course, policy, procedure manual).
  • Completed formal course (with assignment/exam).
  • Attended workplace event/in-service (E.g. seminar, workshop, in-service, vendor training, medical rounds).
  • Attended professional event (E.g. conference, convention, annual general meeting, symposium, forum).
  • Observed and/or consulted with peer/expert.
  • Shared knowledge and/or expertise as a trainer/mentor/preceptor.
  • Shared knowledge and/or expertise as presenter/lecturer (paper, poster, lecture).
  • Troubleshot equipment/ instrumentation/ process.
  • Performed and/or reviewed external/internal proficiency samples.
  • Participated on committee/focus group relevant to area of professional practice.
  • Developed and/or revised subject matter (e.g. program, policy, procedure, process, curriculum, course).

If learning cannot be applied to any of the categories listed in the dropdown, Regulated Members are given the option of selecting “Other”.

Once a Learning Activity category has been selected, the programming will display the data elements required to validate the learning. These data elements are referred to as documentation requirements.

Documentation requirements include:

  1. Nature of Resource: Record the most appropriate type/category of resource that best relates to the activity. For example: textbook, procedure, workshop, conference.
  2. Date: Record the date(s) on which the learning occurred.
  3. Title: Record the title of the applicable resource. For example: the title of the textbook, journal, course, procedure, policy, in-service, or professional event.
  4. Topic: Record the topic of the Learning Activity and briefly describe the subject matter.
  5. Name: Record the name of the applicable provider/equipment/procedure. Depending on Learning Activity selected, Regulated Members are requested to provide the name of author, website, presenter, organization, committee, group, instrument, or procedure.
  6. Dedicated Hours: Record the time (in hours) of instruction, participation, review, learning, etc. Do not include the hours the new learning has been applied in professional practice. All learning is individualized and the number of hours to complete a Learning Activity for a specific Learning Objective will vary between individuals.
  7. Other: Record specific requested items such as “location of learning” or “role on committee”, or any additional information regarding the Learning Activity.
  8. Supporting Documents: If required, the online CCP Activity Log will indicate the required supporting documents. For example: certificate of attendance or transcript.
  9. Impact on Professional Practice: Record the outcome/benefit of the completed learning and the relevancy/applicability on MLT professional practice.

NOTE: Based on the Learning Activity category selected, documentation requirements may vary.

Regulated Members are able to consecutively enter data for multiple Learning Activities per Learning Objective when necessary.

The online CCP Activity Log is available beginning the 2013 registration year and all subsequent years. Although the online submission of the CCP Activity Log is only activated once a Regulated Member is selected for a CCP Compliance Audit, Regulated Members are encouraged to frequently update their online CCP Activity Log with details of completed Learning Activities.


CCP Activity Log (version 3.0)

Effective for 2016 or prior completed Learning Plans.

To access the CCP Activity Log, select Update My CCP Activity Log via the Member login.

A fundamental component of the CCP is the recording of all learning activities in a standardized format to capture the essential documentation elements. The CCP Activity Log is the template utilized by the CMLTA to validate learning activities which is a requirement of a CCP Compliance Audit. While it is sufficient for Regulated Members to simply record and track the progress of Learning Objectives on their completed Learning Plans, the CCP Activity Log requests additional information to authenticate that learning activities were completed and ultimately provided an impact on a Regulated Member’s professional practice.

To highlight awareness and to emphasize the importance of maintaining a CCP Activity Log throughout the registration year, the CMLTA developed an interactive online format for Regulated Members to record the information necessary to validate learning activities. The online CCP Activity Log guides Regulated Members to input and save the required data, and when applicable identifies missing data fields. The online format also allows for the uploading of required supporting documentation when required; however, many learning activities are validated by simply completing the online CCP Activity log. The online CCP Activity Log requests the same data as listed on the Documentation Guidelines for Learning Activities.

The online CCP Activity Log is available for the 2013 registration year and all subsequent registration years. Regulated Members are encouraged to complete the CCP Activity Log in advance of a CCP Compliance Audit request; however, the online submission of the CCP Activity Log to the CMLTA is only activated once a Regulated Member is selected for a CCP Compliance Audit. As announced in the May 2014 issue of The Commentator, commencing with the 2015 CCP Compliance Audits, the CMLTA will only accept CCP Activity Logs submitted using the online format.
