In spring 2021, the College will resume peer and practice assessments (PPAs). In 2020, PPAs were paused because of the COVID-19 pandemic and changing restrictions.
PPA is a legislated quality assurance program requirement and a key function of the College’s regulatory mandate. It’s an educational, structured interview conducted by a trained peer assessor that assesses kinesiologists’ knowledge, skill and judgement. It also helps kinesiologists identify areas of strength and opportunities for improvement within their practice.
Each year, kinesiologists are randomly selected to participate in PPA to help ensure their continued competence. All kinesiologists will participate in PPA at least once in their time being registered with the College.
Given that the pandemic is on-going and restrictions are continuously evolving, PPAs will be conducted virtually in 2021. If you are randomly selected this year, you will receive notice from the College by the end of April. You will then have 90 days to schedule your PPA.
More information on these changes will be communicated in the coming weeks, so continue monitoring @CKO and our website for the latest information.
