How to stay current in the field? CONTINUING EDUCATION



Kinesiologists in Canada participate in this program to ensure that they are maintaining currency in their professional practice. This program is referred to as the Continuing Education Standards Program (CESP). This system is important; particularly as knowledge, experience and educational requirements within the profession are inevitably rising and our profession is expected to remain current.

The CESP operates on a three year basis. At the end of each three year period, Affiliated Kinesiologist are required to submit a listing, along with supporting documentation, of all accumulated continuing education credits. 60 points over a period of three years are required to keep your membership in good standing, ie 20 credits per year of which 70% must be in the scope of kinesiology and 30% in general activities.

If you are a member of the FKQ, the BCAK, the OKA or the AKA, your progression in continuing education must be reported according to their method. Contact your Provincial Kinesiology Association.

If you are a member of the MKA, NBKA, NLKA or you are from Nova Scotia, P.E.I. or others, please complete your continuing education progression online on your profile by this link. Once entered in your profile, choose "My formations" in the menu on the left. Complete the form and save. You will receive a validation notice when completed.
