CCP Activity Log

A fundamental component of the CCP is the recording of learning activities on the online CCP Activity Log. Although it is a requirement for medical laboratory technologists (MLTs) to complete a Learning Plan, including applicable activities at registration renewal, the MLT is only required to submit a completed Activity Log if they are chosen for the CCP Compliance Audit.

Using the CCP Activity Log, the MLT records information to validate their learning activities that were completed and their impact on the MLT’s professional practice. Through the use of the online platform, the MLT is guided to input and save the necessary data elements in the Activity Log and allows for the uploading of supporting documentation, if applicable. The information that is requested in the CCP Activity Log may be found in the Documentation Guidelines for Learning Activities which was developed to serve as a quick reference tool for MLTs.

Completing the CCP Activity Log

At any time, MLTs may access an interactive CCP Activity Log through the online regulated member login, to record the information and data elements required to validate learning activities.

Once logged in, select the desired learning objective from the corresponding Learning Plan year and select a suitable category of learning activity from the dropdown menu.

There are 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 (e.g., 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 above, MLTs are given the option of selecting “Other” and will be required to enter additional information.

Once a learning activity category has been selected, the online program will display the data elements required to validate the learning for that type of activity. 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 (e.g., textbook, procedure, workshop, conference)
  2. Date: Record the date(s) on which the learning occurred
  3. Title: Record the title of the applicable resource (e.g., the title of the textbook, journal, course, procedure, policy, in-service, 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, MLTs 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 (e.g., certificate of attendance, transcript)
  9. Impact on Professional Practice: Record the outcome/benefit of the completed learning and the relevancy/applicability on MLT professional practice.

Although the online submission of the CCP Activity Log is only activated only when an individual is randomly selected for a CCP Compliance Audit, MLTs are encouraged to update their online CCP Activity Log in real-time throughout the year.
