The jurisprudence education requirement consists of a set of online education modules and a multiple choice examination. It is designed to ensure that regulated members gain knowledge and understanding of the relevant legislation, regulation, ethical/practice standards and requirements of a regulated health professional in Alberta.
New Applicants/New Regulated Members
Completion of jurisprudence education requirements is mandatory for new regulated members and a condition will be placed on their practice permit, stating that they must complete the ACSLPA jurisprudence education requirements. New regulated members have 30 days to complete the required jurisprudence education requirements, after which their conditional practice permit will expire.
Existing Regulated Members
At this time, completion of the jurisprudence education requirements is encouraged but not mandatory for regulated members. It will become mandatory at a future date to be determined by ACSLPA Council.
