The Medical Laboratory Technologists Profession Regulation mandates that the College must review and evaluate a medical laboratory technologist's (MLT) compliance with the Continuing Competence Program (CCP). As a result, at the beginning of each year, the CMLTA randomly selects a minimum of 10% of MLTs from the previous year’s registration roster to participate in the CCP Compliance Audit. The CCP Compliance Audit is a tool used by the CMLTA that serves a two-fold purpose:
MLTs randomly selected for the CCP Compliance Audit must participate and submit, utilizing the online Compliance Audit submission process, evidence of continuing education and professional development activities as requested. This may include at least one and up to five of the previous registration years. Participation in the CCP Compliance Audit is a mandatory audit of the MLT's previous registration year(s) and requires MLTs to submit specific documentation and evidence of learning in accordance with stipulated deadlines. Submission requirements include:
Documentation is reviewed in conjunction with the MLT’s registration renewal application to determine if they have adhered to their stated Learning Plan and completed the necessary learning activities thereby fulfilling the obligations implied by a Learning Plan.
Once a CCP Compliance Audit notice has been issued, it remains outstanding on the MLT’s record until the MLT has successfully complied with all requirements of the audit. Non-compliance may result in the levy of cumulative fees and a complaint of unprofessional conduct. In the event there are extenuating circumstances preventing an individual from complying within the specified deadlines, the MLT must notify the CMLTA immediately to avoid or mitigate these penalties. Furthermore, in accordance with the CMLTA Bylaws, any outstanding fees must be paid before a subsequent registration is approved and an MLT practice permit is issued.
The College of Medical Laboratory Technologists of Alberta (CMLTA) is the regulatory body for Medical Laboratory Technologists (MLTs) employed in Alberta.
We wish to acknowledge that the land on which the CMLTA office is located is Treaty 6 territory and a traditional meeting ground for many Indigenous people. This is home to the Cree, Blackfoot, and Metis, as it is for the Nakoda, Tsuu T’ina, Chipewyan, and other Indigenous people. Their spiritual and practical relationships to the land create a rich heritage for our life as a community.
