The following is a list of commonly answered questions and answers related to CEU’s.

IF I HAVE MORE THAN 20 CEU'S IN A CYCLE, CAN I CARRY THEM FORWARD TO THE NEXT CYCLE?

No. Members are expected to be continually upgrading their knowledge and improving their skills.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I WAS UNABLE TO OBTAIN 20 CEU'S DURING MY CYCLE?

The RRCO has certain discretionary powers in these matters. A member who has not completed the 20 CEUs must write to the Committee at the time that their CEU reporting form is due, explaining the situation clearly and direction based on the information provided will be made at that time.

HOW DO I GET A COURSE/WORKSHOP/BOOK ASSESSED?

Send information on the content, duration and a brief description of the modality to the RRCO office. You can make these decisions yourself if the outline falls within the A or B lists. If you think an activity falls within scope, but aren’t sure ask yourself:

  • Will this advance my skill set?
  • Will this advance my knowledge?
  • Will this make me a better practitioner or business person?
  • Will this advance my connectedness in health care?
  • Will this help my clients?

If so, chances are it will fit within the CEU structure.

HOW DO I FIND COURSES OR DETERMINE APPROVED ACTIVITIES?

CEU courses are commonly offered by RRCO recognized schools. Check their websites or give them a call. Want a class you do not see? Ask. Many schools are continuously adding new and exciting programs to their line-up. Other local sources include your City Hall Business Enterprise Centre and the local library. Remember, CEU’s can also be a meeting with peers, or reading a trade journal. Get in touch with a peer, mentor or complementary health professional to soundboard with, learn from, or teach to.

WHEN IN DOUBT ABOUT THE VALIDITY OF A COURSE/WORKSHOP/BOOK, ASK YOURSELF THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS:

Will my participation:

  • Enhance my skills or knowledge as a reflexologist
  • Make me a better practitioner
  • Ensure my clients are well cared for
  • Improve my awareness as a business/health care practitioner
  • Contribute to the betterment of the profession

If you can answer yes, you’re on the right track.

I ALREADY HAVE TO EARN CEU'S FOR RAC, CNO OR THE CMTO. CAN I USE THESE CREDITS HERE TOO?

Yes, so long as they fall within the RRCO Category A or B scope. Please use the recording sheets provided when submitting your CEU’s at the end of your 5 year cycle.
