This section of the website is dedicated to the “Continuing Education” component of KAS. You will find the details on how to cumulate the necessary mandatory credits to remain current in your practice. Your success with your clients depends on the most current training your acquired. You will also find continuing education opportunities.
KAS has mandated the CKA to manage the professional development of its members through its national continuing education program.
Continuing Education Standard Program (CESP) Commitment
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.
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.
