Online reporting of CEUs now available to Ontario RMTs
Registered massage therapists in Ontario will now be able to record continuing education units (CEUs) earned through their individual registrant's profile on the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) website.
This latest initiative is part of the CMTO's continued effort to automate registrants' professional portfolios.
Having the ability to record CEUs as they are earned will help streamline the reporting process and assist registrants in organizing their portfolio, the CMTO said.
Here's how this new capability works: When logging into a Registrant Profile, the CEU tab will be activated. The registrant's current CEU cycle will appear at the top of the chart. To add a new activity to this record, the registrant can click on 'View/Edit.'
If a registrant is unable to open the CEU reporting tab, this means that he or she has not started a CEU cycle. To check CEU cycle dates, check the CMTO's quality assurance page on its website. (November 1, after a registrant's initial registration date, is the start date.) Once the cycle has started, the CEU tab will be automatically activated.
Once the CEU cycle is complete (October 31), the College will send an email notification in early November. This notification will indicate that CEU reporting is due by December 31.
This change only affects the way registrants can record and submit CEUs to the College. All CEU cycles are still three years, starting the November 1 after each registrant's initial registration date, and ending on October 31, the CMTO said.
For further CEU reporting instructions, registrants can view the video tutorial by logging in to their registrant profile and clicking on the CEU tab.
Along with online CEU reporting, registrants are now also able to record their responses to the mandatory CEU articles from the CMTO's TouchPoint newsletter through their registrant profile.
