The Continuing Competency Program (CCP) of the College of Occupational Therapy of Nova Scotia [COTNS] is a quality-assurance program based on the belief that registered occupational therapists in Nova Scotia are competent professionals whose goals include maintaining and improving their level of competence based on accepted standards of professional practice.

Its purpose is to promote reflective practice among occupational therapists by providing a structure that ensures that therapists continue to maintain their knowledge and skills in accordance with the College's standards.

The CCP consists of the Continuing Competency Portfolio and Peer Assessment. These two components are interdependent. The Continuing Competency Portfolio provides the tools members need to keep themselves current/competent through assessment and professional development activities. The Peer Assessment component provides an audit process to ensure members maintain their individual portfolios.
