CCP Activity Log

A fundamental component of the CCP is the recording of Learning Activities on the online CCP Activity Log throughout the year. Although it is a requirement for Regulated Members to record and track the progress of Learning Objectives on a completed Learning Plan for annual MLT Practice Permit renewal, the submission of a completed Activity Log is only required as a component of a CCP Compliance Audit. 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 necessary data elements and allows for the uploading of supporting documentation, if applicable. The online CCP Activity Log requests the same information as listed on the Documentation Guidelines for Learning Activities.

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

Completing the CCP Activity Log

To increase awareness and to emphasize the importance of maintaining a CCP Activity Log throughout the year, the CMLTA developed an interactive online format for Regulated Members to record the information and data elements required to validate Learning Activities. Access to a CCP Activity Log is available at any time (excluding annual scheduled maintenance periods) through the Regulated Member Login on the CMLTA website.

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

There are eleven (11) 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 online programming will display the data elements required to validate the learning. These data elements are referred to as the 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 for each Learning Objective when necessary.

Although the online submission of the CCP Activity Log is only activated only when an individual is randomly selected for a CCP Compliance Audit, Regulated Members are encouraged to update their online CCP Activity Log in real-time throughout the year. If chosen for a CCP Compliance Audit the completed Activity Log simply needs to be submitted. Click here for a guide to updating your activity log.

To ensure timeliness, fairness, and to meet fiduciary responsibilities, the CMLTA uses electronic means (email) as the primary source for all communication. All Regulated Members are responsible for receiving, reviewing, and where necessary; responding to all communications from the CMLTA.
