Step 1 – COMPLETE THE PUBLIC PRACTICE PROGRAM
The Public Practice Program is designed to help members establish themselves in public practice. It provides the technical and ethical requirements specific to public practice as well as the business management skills needed for a successful practice.
From January 2020, the program has two components:
- Public Practice Program eLearning – online learning that focuses on the essential technical and ethical requirements to become a public practitioner.
- Public Practice Program Workshop – a workshop designed to help set your business up for success through facilitator-led and self-paced practical learning. The workshop can be completed via face-to-face or virtual classroom.
The Public Practice Program eLearning or workshop can be done in either order.
Prior to 2020, as part of the Public Practice Program members may have completed:
- Practice Management instead of Public Practice Program eLearning
- Public Practice Intensive instead of Public Practice Workshop
If you are applying for a limited public practice certificate, you only need to complete Public Practice Program eLearning.
